Ways to Read Websites Database

Hey guys i'm looking to crack a websites database to get a list of the emails signed up to it's forum service.
It looks as if they are using Phpbb but i can't be completely sure.
So far i have tryed to sqlmap them but it came back with no sql injection opportunities.
Any other ideas?
Thanks

Reconnaisance is key to any good hack.

Information is power; how are you meant to know which hack to use if you don't even know whether the board is using phpBB or not?

Yes! Thanks for the answer, i think you're right.
I'll get to it.
Anything in particular i should watch out for?

SQL injections aren't the only way to achieve what you want. You could also steal the administrator session with XSS for example.
