MySQL error: 1054
Unknown column 'b.olddisplaygroup' in 'field list'
Query: SELECT u.*, f.*, b.dateline AS bandate, b.lifted AS banlifted, b.oldgroup AS banoldgroup, b.olddisplaygroup as banolddisplaygroup, b.oldadditionalgroups as banoldadditionalgroups FROM mybbosho_users u LEFT JOIN mybbosho_userfields f ON (f.ufid=u.uid) LEFT JOIN mybbosho_banned b ON (b.uid=u.uid) WHERE u.uid='1'


This is what i did :

1. Since i wanted the ver 1.2.3 I installed a new copy of MYBB using a new database
[say 'DB' ] and using the same table prefix.
2. I took the backup of the old database [ say 'old-DB' ] ; excluding mybb_settings
3. I deleted all the tables in the 'DB' excluding mybb_settings.
4. Dumped the database..successfully nad the tables are showing up in PhpMyAdmin
5. But now this error......

You need to upgrade your board.

The forum is not showing up ...But admin cp is working.
I am able to see all my forums Through 'Manage forums'

Since mybb_settings is not backed up i am getting the ACP

MySQL error: 1146
Table 'freewebw_xxx.mybbosho_settings' doesn't exist
Query: SELECT g.*, COUNT(s.sid) AS settingcount FROM mybbosho_settinggroups g LEFT JOIN mybbosho_settings s ON (s.gid=g.gid) WHERE g.disporder>0 GROUP BY s.gid ORDER BY g.disporder

pepotiger Wrote:OK, Here little thing we can try, remove inc/settings.php .

then give the folder inc CHMOD 777 and tell me the result.

This is not a fix for the mentioned problem. The table doesn't exists in the DB.
I recommend from you to start all again taking in cosideration that you need to run the upgrade file.
aha I didn't get that, I was thinking he already upgrade his forum..
