I am also looking to update the security when creating accounts to avoid being continually invaded by robots by adding a captcha.I was able to make a backup of the sql database from the forum.Thanks in advance,Axelo2.

As my personal job is in the IT, this is why it's my part to manage that.As they don't understand nothing in IT... and also the forum created something like more than 10 or 15 years ago by a guy not anymore in this club, I'm now in this situation..I have explained them that and they will will provide me some names to contact to get more info about the creation of this old forum!
