    vBulletin Database Error!

    Since I upgraded my forums to 3.8.4 I keep getting the following error.

    I keep getting this error over and over again. Im guessing it has something to do with one of the plugins I have installed..

    Do you have any modification before the installation?

      SQL Syntax errors are almost always related to modified code.

      To troubleshoot this, first reupload all the original vB non-image files (except install.php). Make sure you upload these in ASCII format and overwrite the ones on the server. Also be sure to upload the admincp files to whichever directory you have set in your config.php file. Then run 'Suspect File Versions' in Diagnostics to make sure you have all the original files for your version and that none show 'File does not contain expected contents':

      Admin CP -> Maintenance -> Diagnostics -> Suspect File Versions

      [Note: In some cases you may also need to remove any of the listed .xml files in the includes/xml directory.]

      Next, disable all plugins.

      Note: To temporarily disable the plugin system, edit config.php and add this line right under <?php

      define('DISABLE_HOOKS', true);

      Then if you still have this problem, create a new style and choose no parent style. This will force it to use the default templates. Finally empty your browser cache, close all browser windows then try again. Make sure you change to the new style and view your forums with it.

      Do you have the same problem?

        Before the upgrading yes.

          Please follow the instruction from Steve to resolve the issue. And see if you're still having the problem.
