Because backups don't happen instantaneously. Most time when you have a hacker trying to gain access to your site your often not thinking of taking a backup! I deleted the hackers account before I captured the IP he was using to create the account.
I explained what I wanted and WHy in the first post.
I thank you for the memberSync thing, but I would appreciate a bit more explanation on how to use this to sync up members to a backup table? I do not want data to ever be deleted from the backup table. Sorry I myself am not great with Object Oriented PHP programming. I am good with php, just having a hard time learning to OOP.
I want members that register on the forums to be also inserted into ipb_members_backup so we have a backup of the info. We had a user that created and account and hijacked a staff members Skype account. He then tried to get us to make his newly created account an admin.
We realized this person was not who he was supposed to be, and did not complete his request, however his account was accidently deleted before I could look at it and get the IP address. Would have been nice to track the IP address and get its location and also to add it to the ban table.
I am hoping this will be something fairly easy to do. I dont care about updating it if the member is edited or the user changes any info. I am basically looking for a backup of the inital registration data for mainly Ip purposes
We use Form Manager from http://www.devfuse.com . For the most part it works well. We customized the skins ourselves to better layout the form but other than it works and looks great. it costs $34.00 however so its not a free mod. and there is a minor issue with attachments.
