3.0.12 To 3.2.1 Error table phpbb_sessions does not exist

Post by khabbab » Mon Sep 25, 2017 6:53 am

Hi,

I am coming from this thread viewtopic.php?f=556&t=2439401&p=14829626#p14829626 After i copied all files to new location, i am getting following error:

Table 'Myforum_phpb1.phpbb_sessions' doesn't exist [1146]

I checked the database backup file of old server and it does not contain the SQL code to create the table "phpbb_sessions". I am sure it is the correct database backup SQL file.

Is the ‘old’ database still active?

nopes. It is gone with the old server. It was surely working fine when i took its backup from phpmyadmin. I also have the whole cpanel backup as well.

I found this although it’s quite old. If you want to try it I’d be inclined to install a local copy of your board using something like xampp and test first. Keep a copy of the original db somewhere safe.
