Although I say lots of the phpbb stuff is useless as its for older versions, its probably still good to have seeing as most of the exploits are similar. Here are the rules, rename them to rulez.conf when you wget them to your rules directory.

I convinced them to go with the new Drupal 6 release and converted all of my other projects for consistency. I started working with Drush because I wanted a unified mechanism to work with local and remote sites. My first major contribution to Drush was site aliases and sql-sync in Drush 3. Read more
