Im cleaning a non-existing portal system. PortalXL 5.0. back to vanilla. I cannot ask the portal creaters since they are gone. I hope you can be helpfull solving a mystery. No Support template available since this is mod related.
You dont have to know anything about the portal. This question is about standard vanilla behavior.
I got the DB. Found out it was phpBB 3.0.8 and had this portal on it. Here is what i did.
1: uploaded the db. Added vanilla 3.0.8 files, changed the config.php to match db.
2: Deleted all portal_xxx tables from the db. Using the STK. After the first function in the database cleaner (that deletes tables), i just got a blank page.
3: Went to the forum. Got this error.
Code: Select all
Table 'discus.phpbb3_portal_config' doesn't exist 
Schema proof here:
Now for the big question. Why and how ? If we assume that ALL changes in the db that the portal installed made have been removed and ALL the files are vanilla. How can the board know its missing this portal table ? There must be some sort of cache in some vanilla tables that saves this demand.
Any clues why im getting this error ?
