I've switched servers, do I now need a full reinstall?

edited August 2006 in Vanilla 1.0 Help
I'm new to implicating forums and websites in general but I've gone with Vanilla and everything has gone smoothly until I tried a few extensions that needed specific read/write access which I couldnt change. I asked my hosting company and they said yeh to have full permissions control I'd have to use a Linux Server (not the Windows one I was on) so I've had the servers changed and predictably the forum now comes up with a full page of errors! What I'd like to know is do I have to delete it and reinstall from scratch or are there simple tricks that I can do so I can keep the previous accounts and posts etc. For reference heres an example of an error message, theyre all pretty much the same, any help would be great, thanks. Warning: main(e:/domains/s/ failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /home/fhlinux183/s/ on line 15
