weird forum time => cannot post :-/

Anyone have the same problem?

Yesterday i made a post and about an hour later i wanted to post something else, but the forum kept telling me i cannot post yet (spam protection) and i should wait a little :shock:

Okay i went to my last post to see when it was and noticed the time was well in the future (18. Jan 2:0soemthing when it was 17. Jan 23:05 when i tried to post again)...

My time is set to GMT+1 if that matters...

Yes, I see weird problems with time in WC Unfinished thread, in finished projects. I don't know what happened. :(

About the time we have problems with it. Maybe some phpbb guru could help to us. Server time is GMT, and I have phpbb configuration set to "GMT", but the time is not right in forum.

Any hint? I was thinking on install a time mod that I read about on phpbb homepage.

Hm i've set it to GMT currently and so far it seems ok, maybe that toilet is just evil :D

Unfortunately i'm a total PHP dummy...can't help you with such things.
Maybe there's also one or the other bug in the forum...

I think I can figure out what happened.

Although our host system time was set right to GMT, maybe databases server had a bad setting. So when system admin puts the clock back, phpbb forum turns "confused" and it had problems with posting during about four hours (the time was four hours fast).

Some new posts, like chronoh's one, was added on the past (back to the future! 8))

Now it seems all are ok.Touch wood!

You can try to change the e-mail address in your profile. Maybe your e-mail account provider is rejecting this domain for some reason.
