I basically copied the entire ubb source directory (& all subdirectories and files) from the 126.96.36.199 source location to the server. I was uploading some non-ubb related directories and accidentally clicked on the ubb source directory in my FTP program.
I then downloaded the 7.6.2 zip files, unzipped them, and uploaded directories and files as listed in the upgrade docs. I then ran the ugprade script and ran into the Check Files issue.
So to answer your question, I wasn't running a 7.6.2 upgrade on a fully functional forum. It was broken because a lot of files were overwritten from the source of 188.8.131.52.
My 184.108.40.206 database is intact (and backed up nightly). Can I just download that version's install files and do a clean install without initializing the database? Or is there some other suggestion you might have.
Is there a way to verify for certainty what version my system was on before doing the clean install to be sure my database is the correct version for the code?
I probaby do have enough space to backup operational files once I get working again. Is there a list of what those files would be that I need?
I also need to be sure I don't call my local source directory the same as it is called on the server in case the same thing were to occur again.
