I hate to say this but I accidentally deleted my back up of "message" files, so I uploaded an older back up of "message" files. on installation upgrade 2.5 - 2.5.2
Now i get the message on setup missing files in message folder 1256850186.ctb, 1256850186.txt, 1298247242.ctb, 1298247242.txt, 1298769447.ctb, 1298769447.txt, 1294613552.ctb, 1294613552.txt, 1274244413.ctb, 1274244413.txt, 1273646439.ctb, 1273646439.txt, 1286024415.ctb, 1286024415.txt, 1218506448.ctb, 1218506448.txt, 1294613552.ctb, 1294613552.txt, 1286024415.ctb, 1286024415.txt, 1256850186.ctb, 1256850186.txt, 1298769447.ctb, 1298769447.txt, 1298247242.ctb, 1298247242.txt, 1294613552.ctb, 1294613552.txt

I do not need these files on my forum, but how can I move on?
Do I have to do a complete installation again?

The second back up is from two years ago. Cry

Hi fishaholics

sorry to hear that did you ask your host if they have a copy of a backup before you deleted the message files ? as they may have a copy

also if you are uploading older message files you will also have to upload a copy of the Boards files that go with the message files and run Maintenance Controls for the forum.

hope this has been of some help to you.

It's OK I renamed some files as the missing ones, then uploaded them and it worked.
Thanks
