  • Hope this was just me

    I was uploading the files for my upgrade from RC 2 to RC 3.
    And it was about I dunno, half way done and I got a permission denied error on my upload.
    I closed my FTP client, tried again, this time I couldn't see anything in it. I Telnetted/ssh'd in, ls, PERMISSION denied.
    I had to call my hosting company have them reset stuff.
    And of course my forums are toast (forgot to backup, my fault).
    I can't see how uploading files would tweak my permissions, so I'm guessing it's the turd throwing monkeys at the hosting company.
    Anyone else have a problem like this?

    That has nothing to do with vBulletin, it is simply something you / your host altered.

      I figured it was them.
      So I start the fun and long process of reinstalling vBulletin.
      And I can't access the MySQL server.
      I check the PHP Admin and apparently it can't access it either.
      I call those monkeys back up.
      Apparently it hit the entire server, so everyone had permissions problems. Including the MySQL database.
      I am sooooooooo pissed off.
