    Doh... I realize that now. Soooo.. I am going to do a back up of the forum and then copy the upload folder to root. I will do a database back up also.

    The contents of the upload folder go into the folder forum on your server. Don't upload the upload folder itself.

    The forum is working. Do I need to move the files from upload to root?

    stop!

    I think you have two copies of stuff on your server. You shouldn't have an upload folder at all.

    I did not say your path was wrong, I said it looked like you had not uploaded the 4.0.5 upgrade files. Try redownloading the 4.0.5 vB package and then upload all the files from that newly downloaded package (except save the config.php file to reupload) and run the upgrade script.

    fyi: Friend of mine is really regretting moving to IPB, they have their own bunch of problems too.
    I agree, they have some coding isses. However none of them have a problem getting to their support forums.

AND YES, I HAVE MY MEMBERS PROFILE SET UP FOR THE CORRECT EMAIL ADDRESSES.

    You guys need to fix this or I am going to IPB.

    If you look at the upper right hand corner of your upgrade pages, you'll see your upgrade files are for 4.0.4, not 4.0.5. You should try reuploading the /install directory from the 4.0.5 download.
