    I've no idea what this means, but if I were you and you just want to get the forum back up quickly then I'd rename your forum directory to 'forum_bak' or something, and make a complete backup your database so it can be recovered if necessary. Create a brand new empty 'forum' directory, upload all vanilla 2.0.1 files to the new directory and start with a fresh install.

    Are you sure all the files transferred correctly?

    Ok, if I do a clean install, do I loose the posts, I know there arent many, but next time I do an upgrade, there could be more posts. How do I move the posts over.

    The posts are in the database, so a clean "file" install does not lose them.

    Just back the database up first then you won't loose anything.

    ok, I'll give it a go.

    This is cracking me up. Trying to do fresh install, I get a whole page full of errors, which I have no clue about. For a simple forum, it isnt easy to upgrade or update. I am giving up at the moment. I just dont know what to do now.

    ok, can somebody help me with this update, I am still getting that error. Also, the updates to 2.0.6 can I update direct to that version or do I have to update each one.
