  • Locked out of forums after vB 2.2.6 upgrade

    Can anyone help with this? Why am I not able to access my VB or Cpanel after upgrading from 203 to vB 2.2.6. The entire upgrade process whent smoothly.

    I get no errors, only says that I am NOT the Administartor.

    =======Error==========
    Wrong Password. Please press the back button, enter the correct password and try again. Don't forget that the password is case sensitive. Forgotten your password? Click here!
    ========End of Error===========

    Things I have tried:

    ran getadmin.php (takes me in a loop, but did not solve the issue)
    reloaded files from 226 upgrade
    erased cookies from MSIE
    Tried to email my (ADMIN) password to myself, but when the email came it did not have a password in it

    =EXAMPLE===
    User name=admin
    Password=

    ==END EXAMPLE==========

    NOTE: Some of my users are able to access to board, while others can't like me. Folks are creating new accounts in order to post. Has this happened to anyone?

    Starting with version 2.2.0 all passwords are encrypted in the database. If you are running a "new" database with the old php files then authentication will always fail, and vice versa. So my questions are:

    1. Did you run all of the upgrade.php scripts. To go from 2.0.3 to 2.2.6 you need to run upgrade13.php through upgrade19.php .

    2. Did you upload all of the 2.2.6 php files?

      assuming you followed upgrade process at http://vbulletin.com/members/upgrade.html, try reuploading the entire vB 2.2.6 /admin folder contents to your forum

        Yes, I have done both.

        I have uploaded all the admin files from the vb226 upgrade and I ran all upgrade files with no errors during the process.

            Read the upgrade page. There is an extra download for versions 2.0.3 and under.

              Hmmmm

              So, if I down load that and run all upgrade files again, will this fix? Also, I cannot close my vb while I upgrade, shal I rename the directory to keep users from posting while the upgrade??

                I don't think it's quite that simple since you've already run upgrade14-19. Unfortunately I don't know of an easy way around this. My suggestion would be to restore the backup of your 2.0.3 forum and rerun the upgrade scripts. Perhaps someone else will know a way around this.

                  Thanks

                  This can be done, but I'll loose at least 10 days of heavy posts from all members...they will not be happy campers.

                    We're looking for a way you won't have to do this. Unfortunately it'll take someone with a bit more knowledge than I have of the functionings of the upgrade files.
