I closed my forums (v. 6.4.1) using that option in the online edit config file so I could optimize the database but as soon as I did that, even though I was logged in as an administrator, I got the following errors:

Quote:

I’ve looked at the “doeditconfig.php” file and the “editconfig.php” file thinking I could simply change the board from “closed” to “open” and then upload the file which would rectify the situation. But I can’t find where to do that. Perhaps neither one is the correct file? So, as it stands now, my Board is dead…… !!

HELP!!

Check the config file and see if the database connect settings are still ok.

Somehow the config.inc.php file got corrupted (0 bytes) and had to be replaced with a working copy. Must have been aliens! All is working fine how.

great to hear. Closing your board will update config.inc.php but it should not make it a 0 byte file.
