It all started when I noticed that the captcha wasn't refreshing. It was just showing the same letters over and over, and I have been getting a lot of spammers on my forum, so many I had to close registration down. I wanted something better, and in this process noticed that 2.0 was out. Nice. Have to upgrade!
Start with the webupdate
After running the webinstall.php and filling out the information I get
Warning: Cannot modify header information - headers already sent by (output started at /home/lociamco/public_html/forum/webinstall.php:2) in /home/lociamco/public_html/forum/webinstall.php on line 916
So that didn't work.
What it did do, however, was mess up the forum completely, so now it is just spouting
Unknown column 'a.attachment_type' in 'field list'
No matter where I try to go. I am guessing the forum is gone, I just hope the backup holds out somehow.
Should I delete the entire thing and try from scratch?
Edit: I have another issue. After doing a backup and trying to restore a forum I keep getting
MySQL said: Documentation
#1007 - Can't create database 'domain_smf1'; database exists
So how do I replace the current (default empty) database with the stuff I have in the backup?
