  • HELP !! My whole board is down....

    I go into my forums, I chose a forum, it gives me a database what do I do, I run the repair.php program....

    I do that and right when it gets to the private messages tables it gives another error....

    so I try to go back to my forum mainpage now and it says:

    Warning: MySQL: Unable to save result set in /home0/home/wobforums/public_html/setup/db_mysql.php on line 93

    There seems to have been a slight problem with the World of Forums database.

    Try uploading repair.php (it's in the 'extras' folder of the zip file) to your admin directory. Close your forums, then run it from your browser with this syntax:


    It everything reports 'Ok' then reopen your forums. If not, then run it again. The second time everything should report ok.
