  • PM Problem

    Hi there , I am really new at this , and would appreciate any help . Just got the vb a week ago . The host we had installed it for us , so there was no prob. We have just changed hosts now . I installed vb on there this evening , and have two problems . One - the private message box link works right , and goes to it , but the box itself doesn't work , not the buttons , the smilies are red x's , and no cursor . Second , how do I get all the stuff posted already from the vb on the old host , to the new one ?

    First, this sounds like all the files were not correctly uploaded and/or they have the wrong permissions. The first thing I suggest is to reupload the original files (except install.php.)

    Second, instructions for moving servers are in the online manual here:

    Note: The only reliable method of backing up and restoring a database is with shell access via telnet or ssh. Please see the instructions here:
