Help Removing 3700+ Registration Requests

I have a problem with my forum where i got 3700+ registration requests and I want to remove all of them without using the Admin Panel. It would take me forever to deny all those requests.

How can I remove all those requests?

warning this may leave files on your forum that you dont need

ok before you do this have a backup copy of this file
but if you ftp into your site goto \cgi-bin\yabb2\Variables\ and find registration.log save this to your computer edit it and remove all entries in it then save and upload it back to your forum.


hope this is of help to you  Smiley

Yes this was the easy part. The hard part are all the files in the Members Folder.

Any idea how to clean those?

Put board in maintenance
Apparove any non-spam ones pending

Idea A - Access via CP or FTP

Sort by Extension,  Most Control Panels / FTP clients allow that -

You may be able to control the  number of results listed. Many clients CP's have a setting for results returned often 50-100-200-500

again an interface issue - you may be able to 'select all' on a page -

'Delete'

Idea B - shell access

cd cgi-bin/yabb2/Members (or whatever)
ls -l *.pre   (to ensure you are in right spot & selecting right)
............ results ..........
rm *.pre (nuke em)

Good luck

I find your lack of faith disturbing.

the easy way was to use the Admin Panel

ok now you have to

Quote:
remove all *.pre files

then all files *.wait and *.msg where test.wait = test.msg
