some weird error after install is done(somewhat nuke linked)

Post by eLto » Thu Mar 08, 2007 1:58 pm

Allright, so the deal is this.
I've had Phpbb2 on my site for a year now, but recently decided to switch to nuke, which has bb forums integrated anyway. I did a forum database backup and saved it. I went on to clean my site, all is well. I install nuke, all is well.
I go to the forums section of it, all is well. I press the backup button and select my backup file. backup complete. Your forums board should now be back to the state it was in... Only not. Okay, I thought. This could simply be because it's nuke with bb, and not pure bb.

So I figured I'd just install Phpbb again, and use a phpbb to nuke script instead, just using the new ones to recover my backup with. I continue on to create the database at DirectAdmin and once that is done, I go on installing the forums.

Everything looks fine, so I log in and recover my original theme, and .... poof. For some reason, the theme works fine, but I'm also logged out. I try logging back in, but it doesn't work. I think that perhaps I did a database upgrade, in which case my username would be different, but no. I look at the userlist, but the forums are locked (I remember locking them before taking them down anyways) and down on the active members list, there is only one user registered. The new one. I try logging in, doesn't work. I receive a new password. Doesn't work.

Figured screw it, reinstalled database and forums. all is well until first login. just doesn't work. at all. I've tried everything I can think of, but nothing works.

I've done the whole process like 20 times now, just hoping it might work this next time, but no.

So, soes anyone know what's wrong? how to fix it? anything? It's seriously driving me mental soon.

Nuke is not supported here as they have changed the core code drastically to make it work. No one here knows what they have done.

You need to seek support on the Nuke boards for support. Any advice or fixes from here will break your board.

Switching from phpbb to nuke must also be sought at the Nuke support boards.

You need to ask for support for nuke on a nuke site.

no, you dont get it. The problem is doing a new clean install of bb, not nuke.

How did you backup your database? How did you restore it? Why did you backup your database? What error messages do you get? What version of phpbb?
