Hello,
I bought a forum, version 3.5.4, and I would like to clean it. Is there a way to install a new version with the last database, to be sure there's no custom script, previous code changes, or something like that, instead of just updating it ? During the migration, I found a trojan, and many suspicious things that tell me I can't trust the last owner. Maybe I'm a little bit too paranoid, but I want to be sure that there would be no problem in the future :D

Thanks for your help...
LemarkXxX.

To be sure no mallicious code is being used anymore, you could use ImpEx (download from mebers area) to only move your users, forums and threads to a new database (fresh install, only default files). This should result in a clean board. Only downside is that all items (users, threads, etc..) will be renumbered, so old links might not work anymore.
