Urgent help needed

edited December 2006 in Vanilla 1.0 Help
This is the weirdest things that happened to me. I have installed Vanilla 1.0.1 about a month ago, and upgraded to 1.0.2 and yesterday to 1.0.3 (just added the required code). While preparing the forum for a launch, I was writing a message to the users using the "Announcement" extension, and then suddenly I get the Vanilla 1.0.1 Setup page, just like I have never installed it before. Any suggestions how to recover the forum, without losing any data and settings will be most appreciated. Thank you.

    Also, how do I avoid from this happening again.

    This has happened before (and to me, too). If you edit the settings.php file in the conf folder, and look for ANNOUNCE_MESSAGE you'll see the problem "a line break". You entered a line break when you entered your announcement. If you remove that, you should be fine.

    FYI, you might want to delete the setup folder too, anyway.
