    I understand you are frustrated but please do not purposely get around the profanity filters again. Thanks - and good luck with the backup.

    when i dragged all the files from my FTP and made a copy of them on my hard drive wont the database be in them, the forum had no problems when i copied these files.
    Only if you backed up your DB to a .SQL file first, and that file was in the list of files you pulled down.

    You will need a complete database in order to get this back. Did you overwrite the existing database?

    I guess so............


    How many tables should i have !!!


    I dragged my complete forum down to my hdd, before i made any changes so im quite willing to go back to VB2 if it gets me my forum back

    He did a clean install instead of reading the upgrade instructions...

    Thus, his database is a vanilla VB3.. his backup is a corrupt VB2.. and hes attempting to copy whatever is in that VB2 dump.. into his newly installed VB3.. which you and I know wont work. Also, Ive checked his dump SQL file he listed. It only has 5 tables in it before it dies.

    Is that right Gaz?

    I'm still unclear why you were trying to restore this backup. However if this is the only backup you have then it doesn't look good. You might want to ask your host if they make regular backups. Most quality hosts do.

    I just checked that SQL file you linked to. Appears to be a VB2 one.. but it's hosed... gets a certain way of the way through.. then errors out. I think it's corrupt.

    Is there any other backups you have.. or is it just this one?
    Thats the only one i have i backed up in admincp i thought that was the best way


    Can you repair that .sql file so i at least get something back
