I don't know who else to turn to. Please guys, give me any help/suggestions/ideas that you can.
I tried upgrading my IPB 1.2 board to 2.0 3 weeks ago. I dont know what happened, because I followed everything perfectly, but it didn't work. I kept getting a mysql error.
I then restored the database backup I had taken before upgrading, to a new database. The index page of the forums shows up, but whenever you click on a forum, you get a mysql error.
I've been going back and forth with my host, and IPB (where email replies are about 4-5 days apart) and IPB eventually said that if I upgrade to the latest version (2.0.3) that it should fix the problem. I asked if they could do it, they said yes, but they need SSH access so it doesnt 'time out' during the upgrade. I aksed my host, they said they don't offer it on shared hosting accounts. I asked if they could do it for me, they said they cant.
My forum has been down for 3 weeks now. I desperately need it working, without any loss in posts or members. It's VERY import to my struggeling new business. I dont know what to do anymore. I dont know who to turn to. The host wont help, and IPB wont. What can I do? You guys are my last hope. Please, someone give me some ideas. I'm losing sleep over this everynight...its killing me.
