    Well, that's the correct behavior

    To check that it worked log in with the mysql client (mysql -uuser -ppassword) and run this query:

    SHOW TABLES FROM dbname;

    Obviously changing dbname. If it shows the tables in your backup, then it worked.

      You sure know you have to replace 'dbname' with actual database name, right?

                  Did you import your (old vB version) dump and try to use it on RC2 files? If so, you need to run the upgrades. If no, do some searching for the mysql error reported and you'll find how to fix it.

                    hmm ... yeh

                    the backup is from beta 3

                    but i rmember upgrading to RC1 recently (after the backup)

                    Has this got maybe anything to do with it ? If so, what will I need to do now ?? I cant downgrade can i ...


                    • #25
                      If that's from beta 3, and you said you upgraded to RC1 then you didn't follow the upgrade instructions fully because that field was added in beta 4.
