  • Disappearing Attachments

    OK, my board went down and we had to use a backup of our database to correct our issues. After doing this we seem to have lost some attachments. They are all in the database because if people try to upload them again it says they are there, but they are not showing on the posts. I searched though everything because I know I have seen this before but I cant seem to find how to fix it. Can someone PLEASE help me?

    Try this. Upload 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:

    http://www.yourdomain.com/forum/admi...html=1&check=1

    [Of course change the exact URL as appropriate for your forums.]

    If everything reports 'Ok' then reopen your forums. If not, then run it again. The second time everything should report Ok (except the session table which you can ignore.)

      Thanks. It appears I am having an issue with my vbulletin.session table. Any idea how I can fix that? It says The handler for the table doesn't support repair

        As I posted above you can ignore that message. The session table is in memory and does not respond to 'repair'. However this does not mean there is something wrong with it.

          Thanks Steve. Everything is fine then, but for some reason I am still having the attachment issue?

            Are you getting the exact same problem? Did all the tables (except session) report Ok when you ran repair.php?
