    Thank you for your assistance. Will give it a try.

    Since this is a fairly new forum I assume that you didn't just upgrade to 3.6. Try repairing your database:

    Admin CP -> Maintenance -> Repair / Optimize Tables

    If you can't access the Admin CP then you can repair the database using phpmyadmin (if it's installed on your server), after which you can use the tools.php file to rebuild the datastore as described in the error message.

    Also check the datastore storage method. Is your datastore cache stored in the file system (is this line uncommented in the includes/config.php file)?

    	// Here you can configure different methods for caching datastore items.
    	// vB_Datastore_Filecache  - for using a cache file
    [color=red]// $config['Datastore']['class'] = 'vB_Datastore_Filecache';[/color]
    	// vB_Datastore_Memcached - for using a Memcache server
    	// It is also necessary to specify the hostname or IP address and the port the server is listening on
    $config['Datastore']['class'] = 'vB_Datastore_Memcached';
    $i = 0;
    // First Server
    $config['Misc']['memcacheserver'][$i]		= '';
    $config['Misc']['memcacheport'][$i]			= 11211;
    $config['Misc']['memcachepersistent'][$i]	= true;
    $config['Misc']['memcacheweight'][$i]		= 1;
    $config['Misc']['memcachetimeout'][$i]		= 1;
    $config['Misc']['memcacheretry_interval'][$i] = 15;
    If you are storing it in the file system then make sure this directory and its contents are CHMOD 777:


    ...after which you can run the "tools.php" file as described in the error message to rebuild the datastore.

    Flaky problems with site going down & now this

    Now instead of a regular 404 message, I get this message:

    vBulletin datastore error caused by one or more of the following:
    1. You may have uploaded vBulletin 3.6 files without also running the vBulletin upgrade script. If you have not run the upgrade script, do so now.
    2. 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 datastore cache incomplete or corrupt in /includes/init.php on line 213

    Help ... what do I do now?

    This was a fresh install on 11-19. Version 3.6.8
