  • Help!!!!!!!!

    I'm in serious trouble, I ran the upgrade and didn't backup (on accident), when I run the upgrade now, it shows this:

    ------------------------------------------------------------------------
    vBulletin Upgrade Script

    (Note: Please be patient as some parts of this may take quite some time.)

    Creating private message table

    There seems to have been a slight problem with the database. Please try again by pressing the refresh button in your browser.

      I got the error message by email, and also by that, the upgrade stops when it says the above error

        1 Question

        It stops at that point, is there a way of starting over, and going again, because I ran the upgrade a little prematurely and the upgrade crashed, no it stops right there, is there any way of going back, and starting the upgrade fresh, because if I click "Next Step" button, it displays that message.

            do you have something like phpmyadmin on your account? if yes, check if the table privatemessage is complete.

            second, did you have the private messaging hack installed before?

                is that error message you posted the mail that was sent you when you first got the error or when you tried again to run the upgrade?

                    I think you simply need to drop the privatemessage table, however a more experienced vb2 user should comment before you do so

                          Revert to a backup and begin again.

                          If you get that error again, *don't* run it again, but view the source of the page and you'll see the error in there.

                              It's been covered many many times here -- mysql -uuser -ppassword dbname < /path/to/your/dump.sql

                              /path/to/your/dump.sql is the file you created when you made a back up (most likely via mysqldump)
