  • No longer have access after Upgrade to 3.5 RC2

    I upgraded my 3.0.7 boards to 3.5RC2 and now it says I dont have access to the forums. I can however click the forum jump menu and get right in. It's just when I click the forums link off the main navbar it says access denied.

    Cotacia, you do not have permission to access this page. This could be due to one of several reasons:
    1. Your user account may not have sufficient privileges to access this page. Are you trying to edit someone else's post, access administrative features or some other privileged system?
    2. If you are trying to post, the administrator may have disabled your account, or it may be awaiting activation.
    I know I have permissions since I am the site admin and have all the permissions set to grant access for myself. I did have the CMPS, Shoutbox, ibProarcade, and UTT Points sytem hacks installed.

    When I upgraded I had to manually upgrade to 3.0.8 since the upgrade script wouldn't do it for me. I then uploaded 3.5 and ran the upgrade script and it worked just fine.

    I'm just curious as to why I am getting permissions errors now? Are the hacks throwing everything off? I know the CMPS isn't working as I haven't reinstalled it yet. I just wanted to figure out why I was getting permissions errors before I spent the time upgrading the hacks.

    Some of those hacks are known to cause problem with permissions. The first thing I recommend is that you reupload all the original vB non-image files (except install.php). Make sure you upload these in ASCII format and overwrite the ones on the server.

    Next, create a new style and choose no parent style. This will force it to use the default templates. Then change to this style and view your forums with it. Do you have the same problem?

      So basically do a fresh install? I overwrote all the files anyway with the 3.5 ones.

      Question, can I do a fresh install, restore the databases from a backup, reinstall the hacks? If not I can always reupload the entire site back to 3.0.7 since I made a complete backup of the site and the MySQL databases.

        No, I didn't say do a fresh install. I said to reupload the original RC2 files and use the original templates to see if you have the same problem.

            Everything is totally screwed up now. It's pulling over my test forums instead of the live forums.

            Can I just do a fresh install and then import the MySQL databases?

            Ah crap I uploaded the wrong config file I bet. lemme check.....

              Ok I have access now witht he new style only. I think it's because my link is pointing to forums/forums.php instead of the index.php. I need to change that I guess and reinstall the hacks.

              Man I had no idea it would be this hard to do. I hope the upgrade to 3.5 Gold is easier hehe.

                Ok now no avatars will display in the forums. I have them enabled in the Admincp but I get the "X" where the image should be. Funny though after reinstalling vBadvanced the avatars show there on the homepage.

                This was happening before I installed vBadvanced so I know that code didn't screw anything up.

                Ideas?

                  Because the postbit has gone though changes as noted in each of the release announcements, revert your postbit and or postbit_legacy templates to have your avatars working again.

                    Ok that worked. Now I just have to remod them when I reinstall my hacks.

                    Thanks for the help. I think for the most part I have solved most of my issues and/or anomalies.
