User some how deleted?

Hi all,

I have a forum user that has vanished (he says weeks ago), can't find him in the members list at all. Is there a way to find out how he got deleted? I FTP'd in and his files are still in the members container. Also, how do I bring him back for a backup I have done? I am using YABB 2.4 have have a TAR backup to restore from. Is it possible to restore a single user?

Cheers,
Charlie.

Hi,

Are they appearing as an 'Ex Member' anywhere or is it just the Member List they have disappeared from?

Chances are that a file has become corrupt. First thing to do is in the Members folder, open up the username.vars file in a text editor and have a look if all of their information is still stored there. If you've just got a blank file, then overwriting username.vars with the one from your back up will hopefully sort it out.

Derek,

Man that was a fast reply! You are correct. I went through the backups and found a usernameinquestion.vars file that was not size: 0kb. The user is now up and running.

Lucky Captain John set me straight with the backups!

Thanks for you help.

Cheers,
Charlie.
