    On Friday (4/15/2005), phpBB announced a new version, 2.0.14. I can download it for myself, but how long does it take for such updates to become available to my customers in CPanel? It is not available now, and I did run backend updates within WHM and command line.

    (My server was recently hacked, and I'm told they came in through an old-version bbs. So I want to advise my customers whenever updates become available. Also, is there anything other than bbs updates I should be monitoring for security purposes?)

    Thanks,

    this is a big downfall to using fantastico for installing phpbb, I don't think a day comes that users can update their boards through cpanel right on time, the best thing to do might be writing tutorials about phpbb upgrade and making it available to users through forums or something like a knowledge base.

    This is why it is extremely important to keep your server secure. With the right methods the exploited phpBB forums will only effect their site. That we offer free upgrades to our customers where we will do it by hand for everyone that requests. It is a bit of work, but easier than finding a good backup of their account.

    It usually takes a few days for them to push out the new updates.
