hehe i might do that when i get the forum back!

I didn't have time to backup the files or the database after the update, but i have a backup copy of the forum before the update. Is it of any use?

kat

Not unless you fancy wiping out what's there, restoring the backup and redoing the upgrade. Whilst that might be a plan, of sorts, you'll lose any posts made after you upgraded.

Have you asked your host?

You might even have a backup available, if your CPanel has "R1Soft Restore Backups", in the "Files" section, as mine has. If you have that, you can access backups, from there.

So, i've solved my issue by rebuilding the forum in another directory, upgrading and moving it to my default directory.

Now i have another problem. The forum was working ok since i rebuilt it (one whole day! ; )) but today my users tell me they can't login. Login results in a 'page not found page'...in all browsers. I've checked chmod and they seem ok.

Whay can i do?

Thanks!!

sees to me that the forum is in maintenance mode...
Please do not PM, IM or Email me with support questions.  You will get better and faster responses in the support boards.  Thank you.

That sure wouldn't help. ;)

If they can't log in, when you're not in maintenance mode, it might be that, as you've moved things to a different directory and back, again, your paths are wrong, now.

If turned off maintenance mode, so you can see.

I already run repair_sttings when i moved the forum and it worked. Also, another strange thing is that i had a custom template loaded (checked that the paths were ok at admin), and it has changed to the previous one.

You don't have the same host as this guy, do you? http://www.simplemachines.org/community/index.php?topic=506095.msg3563411#msg3563411

He's getting exactly the same errors!

Can you log in, yourself?

naoko15

I am at Godaddy. I can't login neither. How frustrating all this.  :-\

kat

I wonder who his host is....?

Unfortunately, Godaddy are famous, for this kinda thing. :(

Have you contact them, about this? (Although, I suspect they're just gonna refer you back here)

I'm wondering if you ought to get "mod_security" disabled and check that you have full CHOWN ownership of your files.

Kindred

well... can we have a test login/password?

I considered that, myself. But, if he can't get into admin, he can't set up an account... :(

Unless he PMs his own details, for course.

naoko15

Well,i  disabled mod_security and that seemed to do the trick. It's working great now...i'm crossing my fingers it stays this way.

Thank you for the help, i wouldn't have been able to figure it out on my own!!

Amazing what that damned mod_security can break! I wonder if SMF could automatically check for it (during installation) and at least warn the admin to turn it off. It might be automatically added to .htaccess, but I'm not sure that all hosts have the same codes to turn it off, or that they even allow mere mortals to turn off "security".

If the SMF prereqs list doesn't already say so, it should warn installers in big bold letters that they MUST turn off mod_security for SMF to run properly.

kat

I have a feeling that some hosts see things and think "OO! That's a good idea! We can show how secure our servers are, with that!", without, actually, looking at what it, actually, does.

If I had god-like powers, it'd all vanish with a flash. A flash with a bit of pizzazz, too. ;)
