    I figured it out. There was still some code in the php include template for the power banner system. Sheesh, talk about never cleaning the attic..

    Cleaning Database in prep for Upgrade

    Our database is very old and has tons of old hacks installed. Most of the hacks either are too old or never had uninstall routines, so I am trying to clean it up in preparation for upgrading to 3.6.

    I performed a fresh install of 3.0 in order to compare our database to it (so I can identify the extraneous tables). But the first time I "cleaned" our database, the site went down.

    So I wondered if a Moderator could look at this list of tables and tell me if they are all OK to delete? None of these table names appears in the default installation of vB3 and we are running the standard (unhacked) code.

    vbstats_date
    vbstats_exclude
    vbstats_options
    vbstats_referrer
    warning_options

    Actually now that I think about it, I could just rename each table one at a time and see if it breaks the site. If not, then I can delete it.

    I have installed a new website when 5.0 first came out and haven't messed with it much since. I deleted it and re-install now that 5.1 is ready. Going through install script I wasn't able to go far getting...
