I feel that this is an incredible stupid question, but where is that database located?
It is the forum database, have you got experience in accessing that?
If not, hopefully you have phpmyadmin with your hosting package or can add it?
I have no experience in any of this to be honest. I had someone set up the forum years ago, and i have had to fix and tweak it myself the last years, but nothing on this level.
I dont have phpmyadmin, since according to my hosting service its unsafe if not updated every new release. I could install it myself but its not adviced from their side.
They recommend me to use either a local software like MySQLWorkbench or just regular SSH in a shell. I had SQL workbench installed, and when i connected up to it i managed to find the databases in question. I an also see that the line 254 is never executed by the download script as it is the first without all columns filled out.
Tho i have no idea how to access and edit the database. Preferably i could look at it like an excel sheet but i dont know if thats doable in any program
I downloaded SequelPro who let me edit the tables directly in a GUI so i changed out the bad adresses and now its working it seems
