Hello,

I would like some assistance in working out which, if any, log files I would need to view to find out if a mySQL DB was downloaded by a website visitor.

I run a phpBB forum and within the administration panel it allows for the mySQL DB to be downloaded and saved to the PC.

What log file would I need to access to find traces of a possible download? I'm looking to find the date, time, users IP address and evidence of the zipped or unzipped mySQL DB being downloaded.

Any help would be appreciated!

I would think, yes. If it can be viewed via the forum admin as mentioned in that thread, it's in the DB as data like anything else related to your forum. What that table(s) is called, I'm not sure of to point you to it.

You might do better to post on that phpbb support forum about this. :)
