    I think I've found the problem!

    So far no more errors. When I backed out the edits mentioned above for vBadvanced CMPS, I forgot one file edit.

    I removed those edits in addition to the others and it seems to have fixed things. I hope it stays that way.

    I'm sorry to have not caught this earlier and appreciate your taking the time to help me through the problem.

    I believe those are all orphaned files. Fill out a support ticket at:

    Be sure to include the login info to your Admin CP, phpMyAdmin and FTP. Please also include a complete description of the problem.

    There was no Rebuild Bitfields option in tools.php. There was however, update bitfields cache under the Datastore Cache tools. I ran that but the error message continues. When members get the message and hit refresh it usually goes away. I have one person that I know of who can't get in at all, however.

    In MSIE, I notice that the pages sometime load with "Done, but errors on page." Other times they load fine.

    I have vBadvanced installed and have tested it with the portal page defs (which add a right column to the forum pages -- index, displayforum, showthread) and tested with it removed from those pages and still get the errors.

    Could the problem be with some of the files listed in my previous message still showing version 3.0.7? I don't know if any of them are orphan files with the new version or perhaps they weren't upgraded properly?

    Yes, run Rebuild Bitfields from tools.php.

    I thought I'd lost the error message but I finally found it again. I didn't run the Rebuild Bitfields portion because I couldn't find the error message and all seemed fine. Should I still run that now?

    Here's the error I got:

    vBulletin datastore error caused by one or more of the following:

    You may have uploaded vBulletin 3.5 files without also running the vBulletin 3.5 upgrade script. If you have not run the upgrade script, do so now.

    The datastore cache may have been corrupted. Run Rebuild Bitfields from tools.php, which you can upload from the do_not_upload folder of the vBulletin package.

    Fatal error: vBulletin

    What error did you get during the upgrade? You can't just ignore these errors and skip that step.

    Upgrade gone wrong :(

    Hmmm, just a moment ago I couldn't type in the message box here. Had to go back and click on New Thread again.

    I upgraded my forums to 3.50...prematurely.

    Was testing an upgrade and new FTP program at same time. Not sure if it was wrong setting or user error, but the upgrade files went to the wrong directory so I had no choice but to upgrade my main forum sooner than I planned.

    When this happened, all attempts to access the forum received an error that I had to finish upgrade immediately. So, I reuploaded all the files and did the upgrade and the forum seemed to be ok. However, there was also a reference to some other file to upload as there could be data corruption. I assume this was because the initial file overwrites occurred when the forum was open. I couldn't find the reference to this file/tool after upgrade was complete and since I had no errors thought all was fine. now getting lots of database errors regarding session data. BTW, I also upgraded vBadvanced and vBgallery, both of which were already installed prior to vB 3.5 upgrade.

    Here is error. Please help!
