  • Repair using a Full back-up

    Prior to turning off BB in admin cp and preparing to carry out upgrade from 3.5.4 to 3.6.4 I carried out a full back up

    Having what looked like succesfully completing 5 of 5 steps I now have nothing

    How can I reinstall 3.5.4 and then repair using my full back up ?

    Or am I missing something ?

    Hope you can help as I "lost" my original php helper/installer and I have had no choice but to attempt upgrade myself

    Using ftp I can still see all relevant folders and files and other than renaming (as instructed) no other files were edited or even opened

    Help !

      Not sure I understand your first post, but the error in the second one means that either the adminmessage table is missing, or you are using a table prefix and have not edited the config.php file to use the corretc prefix.

      Check your database.
