Safe.

shawn sorrry for being such a noob

is this the only line that i need to edit?

Code: [Select]
$db_connection = smf_db_initiate($db_server, $db_name, $db_user, $db_passwd, $db_prefix);
i should be able to get the first 4 values from the cpanel but what's a db_prefix?



and assume ill just run the php file in the browser window  after saving it in the public folder?

The only line you need to edit is the doit line.

Don't touch anything else.

Read the instructions at the top a few times!   :)

Shawn's the best when it comes to cleaning up things in the forum's DB ;). He's also got some other good qualities... I guess :P ;D.
