Okay I have been trying to switch my board to a new host.


I finally figured out how get it to atleast show up now.


However the themes is not showing correctly,everything is misplaced,and I am getting a error saying the default theme directory is not right.


I am not sure what else to tell you,but any help would be great.

in the admin panel -> themes and layout -> theme settings press the attempt to reset all themes button on the bottom of the page. the repair_settings.php file only attempts to fix for the default theme.

Is there a way to do this from the cp,because I have a problem with a mod(pretty url) causing me not able to get to the admincp.

have you tried repair_settings ?

What is repair_settings.php?


Yes I used repair settings to put the correct db info . 


Did you scan further down with that and click all the path options towards the bottom? That would get you pretty dang close to what you need.

I just now notice this. It has fixed part of my problem. I now just have a problem with pretty urls,which can be fixed if I remembered the default admin location.




Edit: I fixed my problem,I just ran the upgrade.php script and used the wap/archive version to navigate to setting the default theme. After going back to the default theme everything was fixed :D.

index.php?action=admin

And for your previous question...yes you can change the theme paths in PHPMyAdmin.
Search for the table smf_themes (or the smf part can be something else) and edit it.
