Not Solved Why are there phpbb entires in my mybb database
Not Solved
I installed mybb from scratch.  To the best of my knowledge, it was just a generic install.   I have never used or installed phpbb.

When I create database backups from within mybb, the backups just have tables whose names start with mybb.  But when I look directly (the webhosting service where the MyBB resides uses phpMyAdmin - in the data base, it contains a bunch of tables with names starting with "mybb_" and a bunch of tables with names starting with "phpbb_". Attached is a complete list of the tables. The table phpbb_users has entries with the following valies in the username field.
