Just installed minibb with my TNG website. I believe I'm supposed to rename the minibb_admin.php for security. How do I do this and make minibb workable please ?

I'm not sure if you talk about the original package of miniBB.
Where did you get the package so it contains this file?
We have no such file included in the default package.

If you need to rename bb_admin.php, do it that way:

- rename bb_admin.php to something which nobody knows, let's say btng_admin8872.php - it's an example, I should not know this, like noone else - there's the point of security!

- open setup_options.php for editing, change

$bb_admin='bb_admin.php?';

to
$bb_admin='btng_admin8872.php?';

i.e. put the same name as you just renamed it to. With the question sign in the end - this is important.

Let's hope that helps.
