Need major help 2.3.1 to 2.5AE

Hey there,

I tried to upgrade my forum from 2.3.1 to 2.5AE.  Things went fine until I tried to save my settings and take the forum out of maintenance mode.  Once I left the page, I got an Internal 500 error and can't access any part of the forum.  I went through the Yabb Codex and followed all instructions I could find, but still have no luck. 

Need help big time!  Embarrassed

Thanks!

and if im not on when you see this you can also have a look in /cgi-bin/yabb2/Paths.pl
and see if you have
Code
Select All
$boardurl = "http://yabbtest.test/cgi-bin/yabb2"; # URL of your board's folder (without trailing '/')
$boarddir = ".";                                  # The server path to the board's folder (usually can be left as '.')

Thanks!  I tried to send you a pm, but I was informed that I must post 5 times before I can send pm's.  So, I'm going to post some random thoughts...  Cheesy

Oh, I did check my Paths.pl and things look fine (according to what you asked me to check).

Last thought for today...
There are easier ways to prove to the world you are a moron than by driving badly  Cool

Now, hopefully I can send a PM!

Thanks again for saving my forum!  The upgrade and template look wonderful.  Can I adjust forum settings and take it out of MM now?
