  • Strange Behavior after 5.2.6 Upgrade

    The biggest thing, that I noticed right away, was that http://mywebsite/forums/admincp stopped working. Like I had just used it to login to upgrade to 5.2.6... and after the upgrade (and deleting the "install" directory) it didn't work at all. Just a white screen. So I noticed I could still access http://mywebsite/forums/core/admincp and everything seemed to work okay, so I just figured it was one of the changes.

    Then I started to notice other things...
    announcement.php File not found
    api.php File not recognized as part of vBulletin
    attachment.php File not recognized as part of vBulletin
    banning.php File not found
    css.php File not recognized as part of vBulletin
    forum.php File not found
    global.php File does not contain expected contents
    help.php File not found
    image.php File not recognized as part of vBulletin
    index.php File not found
    login.php File not recognized as part of vBulletin
    payment_gateway.php File not recognized as part of vBulletin
    user.php File not found
    xmlsitemap.php File not recognized as part of vBulletin

    I know, for a fact, that api.php and attachment.php are parts of vBulletin... And I've tried re-downloading and re-uploading a few times. And it seems everytime Suspect File Versions finds something different. So I got rid of the original admincp and includes directories and uploaded the whole thing again. These are the errors that remain.

    Since I accidentally deleted my config.php file... I had to make a new one. Setting up the directories in config.php I still can't access mysite/forums/admincp... but I can access mysite/forums/admincp/index.php now! Only thing is, if I try to login there, it just reloads the login page. I have to login at mysite/forums and THEN go to the admin page.

    Other than this... the site seems to be running fine... but I can't figure out for the life of me what happened or what's going on. I've updated the site perfectly every version since 5.2.0. No problems at all. Now all of a sudden... this.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Can you please log a support ticket so we can take a look?
    If it was ok before then it's probably something straightforward, it'll just be easier if we can have a look.

    We will need admincp access (with full permissions) and an (s)ftp login.
