I hope you're not going to restore a database... we'll lose quite a bit of posts...

I'm trying to correct that typo, but for some reason it won't accept my changes. :no:
One reason why the changes might not be accepted is the file might not be able to be written to. I think you have to chmod the file through ftp to 666, I believe. Then they changes should go through...

Well, if I can find a recent enough backup I am. The most recent one I have is from September. That won't do. If Stephen has something more recent (or Kyle), like say from the last couple months, then yes I do plan to restore the database. I realize we'll lose some posts (and believe me, even the thought makes me unhappy), but so much is messed up that it really is the best option right now.

The mod has already been chmodded. That should not be the problem. But if Stephen thinks it is, I'll gladly chmod it again.

Well what is the specific error that keeps coming up when you try to edit the file?

I didn't try to edit it. Stephen did.

Ok.

Stephen, what is the exact error that keeps coming up when you try to edit the file? I figured we would try to tackle the problem and see if we can resolve it before you guys have to take drastic measures...

I'm not just restoring the database because we can't change a little modification. That would be rather dumb. The main reasons I'm doing it are that half the administration area is inaccessible since the update, and because I can't for the life of me get the Aeva (Youtube imbedding) mod to work. The errors are in the php files, so unless you know php its gonna be hard for you to help very much.

I don't get an error, it just reverts back after I click Save.

Gary, try CHMODing all of the files in the /forums/Themes/default/languages/ directory, that may take care of the problem (with the date registered mod, at least).

Well I'll say, if anyone posted or needs anything important that was posted in the month of February, grab it now before the database gets restored. lol
