Hi, thanks for the quick responses guys!  Smiley

So... I had the forum all working nicely on Windows Server 2003 / IIS6 but the server developed problems and had to be replaced.

They replaced it with a Windows Server2008 / IIS7 machine (yay!) but unfortunately, my YaBB forum, copied from the backup of the old sever, won't allow the login.

Should I do a fresh install? If so, where are my data files that I need to keep so that I do not lose my configuration and postings etc?

I am a noob when it comes to YaBB so please be patient with me if I ask silly questions!  Wink

Cheers

Hi Steve

I have a couple of quick questions.

A. - Did you install clean, test and then move your data files?

B. - Was it both a move and an upgrade to 2.5 IF so, what was the old version?

Thanks very much

Cool
  

I find your lack of faith disturbing.

Our Windows server expert seems busy at the moment - he could tell you definitely. But at a wild guess, I'd say it was a write permissions issue. During log in the member file gets written to - if it can't write to the member files, then bad things happen.
  

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

Windows Server 2008 IIS 7 YaBB 2.5

I had my forum running perfectly under Windows Server 2003 and IIS 6 on my old server, but since moving to our new 2008 server with IIS 7, I am unable to log into the forum!

When I enter my valid Administrator credentials, instead of logging me in, I get a message saying "The User ID field was not filled out. It is required." even though I did complete both username and password fields correctly.

The server is 64-bit but I am running YaBB in 32-bit mode.

All boards are displayed correctly and can be navigated ok, but no-one can log in!

Can somebody please help as I need to get this working ASAP

Thanks
