Don't have AdminIndex.pl
Sep 20th, 2012 at 11:34pm
There are no actions to perform.
I have Yabb 2.2.3. áI used the wrong upgrade file so I decided to overwrite the files with a backup I had. áI now don't have an AdminIndex.pl file and can't do any admin tasks with my forum. áThe forum is back to zero entries which is fine with me 'cause I had a lot of spam. áHow do I get the AdminIndex.pl file? Cry

I found AdminIndex.pl. áI changed it to reflect the full path on the áModules, Modules Upload and Modules Digest Lines. áI did this by naming it www.myforum name/cg-bin/yabb2/AdminIndex.pl. áWhen I click on the admin tab in the forum it goes to that page but nothing happens. áIt is a blank page.

Since your forum as no messages in it, maybe you should upgrade to a newer version - at least to 2.3.1. From there you can upgrade to the most current version and add anti-spam mods. (It will also solve your AdminIndex.pl problem.)
  

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

Cry áI updated to 2.3
1. Still can't get to Admin Center. áShows correct url but nothing happens. áI can get into admin cp.
2. áThe boards that I had in 2.2.3 are gone as well as the logo that I had on top of the Forum.
3. áThe top of YaBB shows 2.3 but the bottom shows 2.2.3
4. áI can't run Setup.pl, the url shows but nothing happens.

Other than that it is working well áCry

I'm sure that one of the files is not pointing to the right place for Admin Center. áAnyone know which file or files it is? áAlso the same to run Setup.pl.

Setup.pl should be in the cgi-bin/yabb2 folder right next to your YaBB.pl. So the path to Setup would (normally) be "http://yoursite.com/cgi-bin/yabb2/Setup.pl".
Setup itself doesn't need to point to anything as it should give you the opportunity to put in the proper paths to everything else it needs.

1. áI was upgrading from 2.2.3 to 2.3

2. áI don't have the old forum online

3. áI tried to start over because I hadn't watched the forum in over a year áand wound up with over 360,000 posts and members.

4. áI'd rather not post my forum URL publicly so I'll email it to you if I can now find it. áI had a link to it on my website and deleted it 'cause I was starting to get so much spam. áCan you tell me what the URL would be (my URL/?./?/?) á

Send xnoddyx a PM with your site particulars. (Like the actual URL and login info. He's our goto guy for things like this.)

from a quick look at the forum it looks like it is miss match of parts from 2.2.3 and 2.3 and this is probably why AdminIndex.pl wont load will post back when i have more info.
