No problem. I'm just sorry we didn't get the problems sorted out for you on your first try.

Obviously feel free to ask if you have further problems with this go...

Yeah, I think that will be the best solution I'm afraid.

I always to do fresh install myself and move the relevant files across, so if you want to do that, take a look at this in the YaBB Codex:

http://www.yabbforum.com/codex/YaBB.pl?num=1190674425

That actually describes how to move to a new server, but it's exactly the same thing for moving your files to a fresh install on the same server...

I did a quick search on the shebang and it's allright, I think I'll have to reinstall the whole forum :S

I wouldn't have thought your forum would have worked at all if that was the problem, but it quite possibly could be... Do you still have a copy of your 'old working' YaBB.pl? If you have, what's the first line?

What's the shebang? Could this be a possible solution?

Verify the path to Perl in the shebang (#!/usr/bin/perl --) for your
         specific server in the following files of this package and change it
         if nessesary:
         YaBB_2_5-upgrade/cgi-bin/yabb2/YaBB.pl
         YaBB_2_5-upgrade/cgi-bin/yabb2/AdminIndex.pl
         YaBB_2_5-upgrade/cgi-bin/yabb2/Admin/ModuleChecker.pl

The problem is that, to start the process I should be able to enter the Forum Settings, which is what the guidelines said I should do in the first place, but now I can't, so I don't know what to do. Do I need to install my forum from scratch? And, if that's the case, which files should I back up?

Okay, sorry to say this then, but it might be best if you start the process all over again - it shouldn't take long and will hopefully work out okay this time. I think that's actually going to be the easiest thing to do...

I tried but it asks me for my password again and when I do, it sends me back to my forum, not the Admin panel Sad

Derek, sorry to keep on using your time, but the problem is not yet solved. I can't enter the Admin panel. It asks me for my password over and over again. And now it says ALERT!! Form Spoofing Detected coming from IP address: 65.49.2.17

I just realized that I messed up when doing the update as I should have done this: "Set your Browser on the "Forum Settings" page and don't close this window  You need it later without logging in again!!!"
As it said in the guidelines, but somehow I missed it and now I don't really know what to do. Do you think you can help me?

Thanks!
Martin

Perfect, yes, I just put the code at the end of the file, to see if it worked. Thank you very much.

I see you have the tab menu working now anyway?

No, the error logger is not there either, why is that? maybe the file is missing other important things?

I'm not 100% sure how the upgrade process works to be honest, but now that you can enter the Admin Center, go into there and save all of the settings - this should write all of the variables to Settings.pl...
