So, using Fantastico I uninstalled everything. Started fresh but now the forum is gone, and some things just don't work. Is there a reason the forum is gone? All the themes are gone, too. Is there a way to get this stuff back?
Regards, vharlow

you may have rewritten over your files! did you create a backup? I had the same problem, then just used the backup themes

Sad I just tried to leave a comment on your site, Trench, and got a sql error. Thanks for the tip, but of course, old ladies forget things like backing up. I didn't backup. In fact, in the process of uninstalling, I even wound up deleting the backup made when upgrading!

Don't know how I'm going to get things the way they were. But I'm still plugging away on that site and a couple others that also have upgrade problems. Ugh. Backup, backup, backup. Doh! - that was a mistake

Thanks for the heads up about my comments. I was wondering why no one was commenting on the site! Typically, I have quite a few!!! i have to look into that. Im not familar with how to troubleshoot SQL errors.
