Are there any errors listed in your server error logs? YaBB preempts most errors from showing up there, but some do get through.

I'm 99% sure it's an issue with one or more member vars files that got corrupted during the upgrade. (Hope you don't have too many of them as you may have to look through all of them to find the bad ones.)

If you only have one solution to a problem you're not trying hard enough!

Although Chmod 777 should work, I read somewhere that it's not recommended because it can cause problems. The permissions for that folder is supposed to be 755, so maybe you can give that a try to see if it makes a difference.

By the way, as you may already know, permissions for "all files" in the Variables folder is supposed to be 666 even though you'll often find that they're set at 644.

As for possible corruption in your Members folder, if you have a backup of that folder, maybe you can upload those files. Also, the CHMOD settings should be the same as the Variables folder, and files (755 and 666 respectively).

Edited:
On a related note, with individual *.var files when they produced errors, I've found that uploading the same files from a local backup solved the problem. In others words, an older backup beyond the latest and current backup wasn't needed.

Maybe in your case during the upload process one or more of the files in the Members directory got transferred incorrectly.

Just to have options, I routinely have a rotating number of backups for our forum ... usually 3 or 4. Additionally, those daily backups are copied onto an external server so that we really have 2 of each.

Morning, noon, or night, have a great one!

Hi Alan,

Are you sure that you applied the fix correctly? I can see what you describe happening on a clean install, but using MailMembers.pl from CVS fixes it for me:

http://yabb.cvs.sourceforge.net/viewvc/yabb/YaBB2/cgi-bin/yabb2/Admin/MailMember...

Just save the file and upload it to your yabb2/Admin directory.

Ok thanks. I worked it out. Seems it will not overwrite an old yabbaddress.csv file in variables. Once that file was deleted and I started again the new file had all emails in it...
