It seems I'm being spammed for thousands of people are registering on my DNN 7.2.2 site.  It's set for public registration right now.. Whenever I change it to verified user registration or even none it gets turned back to public.  How can I change this in the MSSQL DB?  Also, is there a chance the module NB_Store is overridding this setting or putting it back?  It supports various user authentication settings for easy checkout but I don't have any of those enabled.

It's probably not the store module... at least that hasn't been my experience.

Also,How can I change this in the MSSQL DB?
If you know some SQL you can change this using >Host >SQL.

What field do I change?  I changed the 'User Registration' field to '4' instead of the '1' that was in there and it didn't change it.. Where do I change the user registration in the DB?  I have SQL Manager pulled up right now.  I can't change via the GUI for it goes right back.

I fixed it..  I went to the dbo.portals table and edited the 'User Registration' field to 3.  It seems it's 0-3 for options..  3 being verified.  For some reason the GUI wouldn't let me change it.. 

 But..  It seems CAPTA can be skipped by simply using the URL registration method..  I enabled CAPTA for registration and for logging in.. They where still able to register..  Is this normal?

People are still spamming my registration even with verified turned on?! I went to the dbo.portals table and edited the 'User Registration' field to 3. It seems it's 0-3 for options.. 3 being verified. For some reason the GUI wouldn't let me change it.. But.. Now.. They are still spamming me even with verification turned on and CAPTCHA turned on.
