deleting multiple users in php

Hello everyone,
I am new around here. I have a small website wherein I had my friend install a discussion forum. he installed phpbb2.0.23 and life was good… and then the spammers started flowing in. daily there are 70-80 spam registrations.

my problems is i don’t know how to bulk delete these spam registrations. also, how can i prevent them or such spammers registering in future?

many thanks in advance.

Bulk deleting users in phpBB should be possible when you’re logged in as admin. Refer to phpBB documentation.
To prevent automated (spam) registrations you can use CAPTCHA code protection. One of the best one is reCaptcha.

Also, check out tips on how to stop forum spam, and make your forum less attractive to forum link spammers.
