  • Did A stupid thing, need help

    Hi Everyone,

    Well I was running 2.3.0 and I tried uploading the files and doing the upgrade to 3.0.0 beta 3. Well everything was going until about step 5 and it kicked me out of the page and sent me to the admin login, there I could not log in. So I had a backup of the database from the earlier version, I deleted EVERYTHING, did a fresh install of vb3 and tried to upload the vb2 database, guess what? did not work, lol. Tried repairing, etc. nothing doing. Is there ANYTHING I can do? If I lost all this I will be sick. I am not wild about the idea of RE installing 2.3.0 and uploading the database.

    Thanks

    You can't use a vB2 database with vB3 files. Since you restored your vB2 database, try running the upgrade script again.

        View the source of the page where you get the error, and post the full error message here.

          well I just installed 2.3.0 in another folder and tried to run the install and get a database error in it too. Here is what it looks like on the source.

            If you're upgrading, make sure you're running install/upgrade.php - If you're installing vB3 on a database which already has vB2 on it, set a prefix for vB3 in your includes/config.php file
