Upgrading to Vanilla 1 Issue

edited June 2006 in Vanilla 1.0 Help
I'm currently trying to upgrade my Vanilla 0.9.2 forum to Vanilla 1. Everything started out seamlessly until I got to Step 2 in which it tries to update the database. I get this error: "We came across some problems while upgrading Vanilla... It appears as though your Vanilla installation is missing some tables:" That's all it says. Now, I'm sure that the database settings in the form are correct. And as far as I know all of my tables are intact, since my forum was working perfectly fine before. The only time I have ever modified the Vanilla tables was when I migrated from phpBB, I imported everything and then had to tweak some entries. But I never removed any tables. Any ideas? Is it possible to just do a fresh install of Vanilla and then import all of my old posts and everything?

    I think a better question is of "which" Vanilla v1 are you referring to? is this a pre-release version or directly from the SVN? at the moment don't do a thing until you answer that question.

    Is that release the upgrader thingy?

    It is yeah but i dont suggest using it. Svn has had some pretty big changes since that was made.

    to upgrade from pre1 to pre2, just copy the files on top of yours. Don't bother with any installers or upgraders

    like I said when I announced the second pre-release
