Quote from: nc3man on March 24, 2023, 05:20:35 PMI also have made the mistake of upgrading incorrectly, so that previous attachments and agreement.txt were not properly located. As @Kindred advises, follow the upgrade instructions, especially if we're talking a large upgrade here. https://wiki.simplemachines.org/smf/Upgrading. I made the mistake of doing more of a clean install once instead of dropping the large upgrade files directly onto the working installation and letting them overwrite. I also recovered from that by starting over with a backup and more carefully following the instructions. Its easy to make mistakes, but you can recover. It pays to be patient.Before using repair_settings.php, I highly recommend reading the excellent documentation which is not mentioned in the file or easily located on this site (for me anyway) https://wiki.simplemachines.org/smf/Repair_settings.php

Sounds like you just need to wipe out your current botched setup, restore your backed up files and database, make sure that's working as the old version, follow the upgrade instructions carefully, and only use repair_settings.php at the end if necessary.
