Data corruption, rebuild issue,
Hope someone can set me on the right track.  Using  YaBB 2.5 AE and planned to update until these various issues

1. Running rebuild members list I get this error:

Unable to open ./Members/fikjol.vars
Verbose: Permission denied

This member does not exist and is not the only one.

I also notice that the groups/ownership are not the same for all members. Most are 99/99 but there are a fair number of 768/762 and I wonder if this is an issue and if they should all be one owner/group.

Running rebuild message index gets me this:

"Unable to open ./Messages/1315257018.ctb
Verbose: Permission denied"

Again here, owner/group may be an issue as like above, I show both 99/99 and 768/762

Recount board totals gets me:

"Unable to open ./Messages/1315257018.ctb
Verbose: Permission denied"

Same owner/group thing.

Rebuild notification files:

"Unable to open ./Members/lindastevener.vars
Verbose: Permission denied"

Wen I go to view/delete members, I am seeing vast lines with no name, position, posts, registration date, days since online, etc.  All are blank and cannot be modified or removed.  Ideas?

Finally... maybe... I am constantly being blocked out from my own YaBB getting this message:  Banning Notification. "Sorry, you are banned from using this forum! "  

I get around this easy enough by swotching IPs but where are the blocked IP kept?  I though I knew, but clear I do not.  File name?

Any help here would be great as I cannot upgrade until all is in order.

Thanks... Tim

Adding to the above...

it is rare, but for some reasons unknown, a host server will require CHMOD of 777 for some Dirs and files try a CHMOD of 777 for all files in the Members dir if that don't work try the Members dir also as 777.

Also do you have any zero'd/zero bite files ? , they must be removed or overwritten with your message backup files or make replacements for them. See the YaBB Codex for file structures http://www.yabbforum.com/codex/YaBB.pl?num=1224094402
