I have recently moved from Bluehost, back to Hostgator.
Please describe your problem.
Some of the information above is not right, or a guess. I orginally setup my board a long time ago and moved to Bluehost and experienced trouble doing updates, weird file properties/permissions errors, as I usually use the automatic FPT based update that merges the files. I only have a style on my board but I have modified the colours, so I do that kind of update to keep the look of the board.
So I planned to do an update again when the board was moved and that didn't go well. Timeout error straight away, but I think the board was ok.
I then tried to disable Tapatalk as it wasn't working, so I thought I'd try and remove it and re-install. It said it was disabled, but then my board fully died, with the error:
This page isn???t working
vvforums.com is currently unable to handle this request.
HTTP ERROR 500
I started re-uploading from my Bluehost files and got it back.
Then, thinking it was maybe just Tapatalk I tied to enable the Xmas lights extension, just to test. Again, it looked good, but 500 error and I spent many hours uploading the old files to overwrite the problem.
Now I realise I have a more serious problem as I was looking into Extention issues and went to purge the cache. I now have the 500 error again and am uploading files again to try and fix the problem.
So the board works, when it's up, for posting etc, but anything I do in the ACP seems to bring it down.
Seeing as all I need to keep are some stylistic changes is it safe to try a full clean install of 3.3.8 and then just copy over my files to make the board look like before? Which files would these be? It has been a while.
