[Solved] All forum content missing after upgrading
I upgraded from v1.1.4 to v2.0.18 but now all the content and users etc seems to be missing.
I followed the instructions here, which say simply to overwrite the existing files:
I have since found these contradictory instructions which say not to overwrite the conf/, cache/, uploads/, custom themes/and custom plugins/:
I have reinstated the old uploads/ directory from my backup.
The old messages are still in the database, but not the old users. Should I ask the web host to replace the database with the backup of the old one?
Then how do I make the new installation of Vanilla see that content?
