Thats a really good point. After the files first get uploaded to upload.sourceforge.net its only on one mirror for a while. So if your going to take sourceforge down with phpBB downloads thats the time to do it :mrgreen:

There is [Removed] a romanian version of phpBB, try talk to them and ask them for support.
If i manage to download this version of phpBB i can create a mirror on my site.

I've just tried to download the beta and every single mirror gives the following message:

"You are requesting file: /phpbb/phpBB-3.0.B1.zip
There was a problem downloading the file from optusnet.dl.sourceforge.net. Please try a different mirror."

Is anyone hosting this please because I'd like to get my hands on a copy.

Thanks

People really should know better than to download from anywhere other than phpBB.com and/or SF.net... since as per the very blog linked to above says:
I worry about getting something that’s been slightly altered.
Also, the non-zip files on SF can be downloaded just fine.
