Hi All, I'm not sure weather to Thank you or curse you! After restoring my account, the problem with the BlueFTP Manager is fixed, but oh my God!!! I thought maybe a half hour or so to republish everything! Oh No! I didn't realize I had so much "stuff" on the site! It's taking a day or two to get everything back and published.

BUT...the problem is fixed so I think I'll THANK YOU!

Here's my next pestering question for you! :-)

Is there someplace "out there" where I can reload my php Forum and my Coppermine Picture Gallery. There was quite a bit of "stuff" (there's that word again!) in there, especially the screenshots of the aviation section in the gallery where visitors have posted their shots.

Thanks AGAIN for your help and advice!

All you have to do is reinstall the forum and coopermine from fantastico. We did
tell you that it would be a complete account reset.

Thanks Brad. So, basically, everything in Coppermine and the php forum will be gone then? A "clean slate" if you will?
Sorry if I'm a bit dense on this, but I'm learning as I go!
Thanks again!

Do you have any database backups from your forum saved on your pc? If so, you can reinstall your forum and then upload the database backup. It won't fix everything, but it will keep you from having to start 100% from scratch.

Thanks for the reply racefan. Unfortunately, this is one of those lessons one learns the hard way! I'm a back up fanatic now though!

LOL It was a lesson I learned the hard way as well. Good luck with everything, I know it has to be a major challenge but I've seen your work and have no doubt you'll land on your feet.
