    I can not upgrade right now. First I need to upgrade to 3.8.1 first.

    Anyway thanks for your time.

        I submitted a ticket to VB support. They said it could be due to-

        - incomplete file uploading
        - Not using ASCII mode uploading of files

        I reuploaded by taking care of those two tips.

        Everything back to normal.

        I am just posting if this thing happens to anybody, they can follow these tips.

          Where could be the problem?
          good! you fixed.

            3. Run upgrade.php.
            Would this also apply to going from 3.7.1 to 3.8.4 and if so would it be listed in the upgrade instructions? I'm new at this stuff and wondering if (other than security reasons) there is any downside to wait and just go from 3.7.1 to vB4?

              This might be a dumb observation, but don't we need to rebuild the forum and tread counters after an import? If his data is there, maybe it's just not linked up right.

              Of course, I could have just read the rest of this thread
