I have just about given up trying after 16 hours with two hours sleep i am beaten it looks like the forum has gone for good.
there are going to be a lot of dissapointed guys, but my computer skills are just not up to the task.

well thats the end of a ten year era for the club forum.

Would you not try another host?

Would be a waste of a community and their are folk here who would help you install a backup if you have one?

Although it may not run in a browser, every chance if you login by ftp all the files will be there ready to download.

Since it appears you uploaded your forum's files back onto the server after evidently deleting them from your cgi-bin, then like depablo mentioned, your forum is still around for you to fix. It's just not coming up in a browser.

If you also have an up to date local copy on your own computer, then you're in an even better position to reactivate your forum. Just hang in there until your 500 Internal Server Error gets resolved, and your online club will be back up and running for you and your members to enjoy (with xnoddyx's help as he's helped so many others).

It's not over yet. Wink

  

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

I sm having one final go at getting the forum running again, I don't know if my letest idea will work, but hey ho in for a pound as they say Smiley

I spoke to the IT guy that originally set up the forum on the BT web space, and he has kindly offered to look into it possibly on Monday. my hope is if I can't fix it he should be able to. fingers crossed as they say.
I am typing this as I wait for the files to FTP into the web space, here is hoping I had a flash of inspiration Undecided Smiley

I am now starting to wonder where the forum should be put on the web space, should it go in the Oublic folder, or the cgi bin? I think the tiredness is getting to me so I am getting confused now.

I am wondering if I have got the oaths right

turning into a real saga isn't it? Roll Eyes

I have followed the paths you mentioned, and yes there is a forum there, looking at the error log it looksvery full and mixed up, in fact so mixed up I don't understand it. Embarrassed
it all looks a bit of a mess to me Roll Eyes
