I did a fresh install of B4 and then went to upgrade to RC1. When I did, I encountered two strange issues, which I have corrected, but now I'm stuck.
The first two errors were related to the smf_calendar. It was looking for start_date rather than startDate and the same for end_date. I modified the database and it proceeded from there.
Now I'm getting the error:

SELECT mem.ID_MEMBER, COUNT(pmr.ID_PM) AS instantMessages_real, mem.instantMessages
FROM smf_members AS mem
LEFT JOIN smf_pm_recipients AS pmr ON (pmr.ID_MEMBER = mem.ID_MEMBER AND pmr.deleted = 0)
WHERE mem.ID_MEMBER > 0
AND mem.ID_MEMBER <= 0 + 256
GROUP BY mem.ID_MEMBER
HAVING instantMessages_real != instantMessages
Caused the error:
Unknown column 'mem.instantMessages' in 'field list'
Obviously, the error is saying that the column doesn't exist. But any idea on what I can do for this one or why I'm seeing these errors?
If you were at Beta 4, the database should already have been using start_date rather than startDate.
It seems to be running queries expecting you to be running a 1.1.x database?
It was definitely a clean install and only had one mod (ad management). I have backups, so maybe I'll try recopying the installation files.
Not sure what happened, but I restored from last night's backup and tried again. All went well this time.
