Hi Guys,

Rolled back to a perfectly working V1.1.21.
ran repair tool.. all good.

Backed up home dir and database.

Uploaded smf_2-0-12_upgrade files to home dir.

Ran upgrade.php

Looks good

However. Stuck on step1 : login

I enter the server, username, password and path correctly but I get the message;
Quote
550 Can't change directory to /home/jo*******h/public_html: No such file or directory

all permissions on files and folders are as advised.

Simply enter your connection information below or alternatively click here for a list of files which need to be changed.

If I click that I get the message;

The following files needs to be made writable to continue:

/home/jo******ch/public_html/Settings_bak.php

However there is no Settings_bak.php file in the homedir?

Hello!

Settings_bak.php is a backup of Settings.php, so you can just create a copy of Settings.php and rename it as Settings_bak.php; then, give it the same chmod as other files. That should solve the problem.
