Hello,

Forumotion is not a forum software, it is a remotely hosted script that allows you to create forum and manage the front end things.

Since it is not a 'software' like phpBB or MyBB etc it won't allow you to access the program files or the database.

A forum is made using both PHP and HTML. Only one language can't be used. Also note that HTML and PHP are not substitutes, but complementary.

You can make a site BIG even without database access. If you still need database, you can hire a web host and use phpBB, MyBB or vBulletin.

Please avoid double posting unless separated by 24 hours. You can use the EDIT button to add info to your post.

It is your forum but Forumotion doesn't allow database access to anyone. It is the policy of Forumotion.

Hi,

No, the suggestion has been refused many, many, many, many times before.
The French laws state that the owner of the DataBase have the right to allows their user(s) the access to it, and the ForuMotion has disallowed us to access & use it Wink

In the ToS you agreed to not being able to access the DB as well, may I note Smile

to be blunt?
Forumotion is a free forum host and do not offer access to their data base or members to keep or maintain forums data. The same way facebook,myspace and many other free sites do not offer their data. If you are looking for sites that you can keep and manage all of your data then you will have to get a paid forum that allow this.. like Paid phpbb or V-bulletin as a couple examples.



Since the questions was answers and forumotion do not offer access to forums data base.
I will now mark as solved and lock the thread.
