Error message:

Any update method (replace changed file, autoupdate) failed.

Any help would be very much appreciated.

This seems to be a more common error, see this topic. Are you also using IIS?

Can't tell but I assume it rather is a Linux machine. It's a "managed 1&1 dedicated server".

If using Apache webserver, check if the directive AcceptPathInfo is enabled.

I have added it now but it still doesnt work. This is my forum's .htaccess:

Code: Select all

#
# Uncomment the statement below if you want to make use of
# HTTP authentication and it does not already work.
# This could be required if you are for example using PHP via Apache CGI.
#
#<IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
#RewriteEngine on
#RewriteRule .* - [E=HTTP_AUTHORIZATION:%{HTTP:Authorization},L]
#</IfModule>

<Files "config.php">
Order Allow,Deny
Deny from All
</Files>

<Files "common.php">
Order Allow,Deny
Deny from All
</Files>

AcceptPathInfo Off
I still get the same error when I try to access the forum after coyping the 3.0.13 "changed files" to my 3.0.12 forum.

Any help would be very much appreciated.

rxu suggested you should enable it instead of disabling, so try AcceptPathInfo On. Don't forget restarting the server after making changes.
However, I don't know whether it should actually be disabled or enabled...
