    I haven't seen this type of bug in Vanilla. Try the following.

    1. Make triple sure you've deleted *.ini in your /cache folder.

    2. Make triple sure you've actually copied all of the vanilla files to your new forum.

    3. Make triple sure your web server has permission to read all of the files.

    4. Disable your plugins one-by-one to see if a plugin could be conflicting with your setup.
