My site is now working fine again after taking a deep breath, uninstalling newbb2 and overwriting XOOPS 2.1.10RC with XOOPS 2.0.9.2 and then reinstalling Newbb1. This has now restored the xoops_user database.

OK ... I don't want to make the same mistake again and just want to check this out with you and upgrade in this order ....

1) Upgrade the XOOPS core to 2.1.10RC
2) Upgrade to Newbb2

If I do things in this order, then things should be OK?

I've learned a very valuable lesson over the past few days and consider myself pretty fortunate to get out of this mess.

This is the series of events that led to the behavior of my xoops_user database.

My site was originally XOOPS 2.9.2 with Koudanski's phpbb forum module bolted on. Everything was working fine until I decided to upgrade to XOOPS 2.1.10RC when I noticed that I could no longer log in as admin on the phpbb forum. I decided to uninstall this forum and try newbb 2. This is when my problems began with the database.

I've tried all sorts of things such as uninstalling newbb and trying to install phpbb again. It won't allow me to install it due to an incompatable xoop_user database.

There are a few things I could try (reinstall XOOPS 2.9.2/ phpbb and hope that the database would be reinstated) etc but I'm rather reluctant to do anything at the moment for fear of messing things up even more.

I hope I've provided enough information in order that I can return to normality again.

Thanx again

I finally managed to get into my site by this devious method....

I went into my xoops_user database with PhpMyAdmin and was able to see all the data for my users. The passwords were in code in the form of a series of numbers and letters. I copied this code for my password and was able to log into my site by pasting this in. I then revisited the xoops_user database and changed my password code for a recogniseable password. I was then able to log in as admin using this password.

As a quick fix, I could now change all my member's passwords and email them the details in order for them to log in. This is not really ideal as they are then unable to change them again which isn't very good for confidentiality. I don't think that new members would be able to register either?

Are there any PhpMyAdmin guru's who could suggest how to return my user database back to normality again?

At least I can now get back in again but will await suggestions for a more satisfactory outcome, if possible.

Thank you.

Hi

I desperately need your help.

I don't know how it happened but registered members and admin can't get into my site without an 'Incorrect Login' message appearing. Even if I try admin.php, I'm told that I don't have permission to access this area. My member database is apparently shot. I've tried to register as a new member and logged in with that password but it just returns the same error.

I can get into phpMyadmin but to be quite truthful, I just haven't a clue as to what I'm looking for.

Is there anything that I can do to to at least get in as admin to sort this mess out?

I do hope that there is a way of getting back in as I'm feeling pretty frustrated with the whole thing.

PS. Just been doing some fiddling and now when I try to log in, this error appears:

Quote:
Fatal error: Call to a member function on a non-object in /homepages/20/d88562731/htdocs/include/functions.php on line 145


Is this helpful?

Hi

I would dearly love to place a link in the Main Menu of my XOOPS site to an HTML document. Is there any way that this could be done?

Back up Database?

There seems to be very good advice on backing up your database before installing a new module etc.

What is the simplest way of backing up and then restoring it as advised?

I can't seem to find this info anywhere

Thanx for all your help.

Unfortunately, I had to start again with a fresh install and a new database.

I suppose that there is a valuable lesson to be learned from this ....
