Need immediate help! I accidentally installed the forum instead of upgrading it!

Hi Guys,

This is probably the stupidest thing anyone can ever done but i accidentally installed the forum over an existing forum instead of upgrading it. It's been a while since I did the fourm ugprade and I for some stupid reason used hte forum/install/install.php file instead of the upgrade.php file. PLEASE tell me what I need to do to fix this.

Did you have a back up?

If not there isn't much you can do.

You could try to ask your host if they had a back up.

If you didn't back up, you're screwed. Welcome to it.

if you dont have a backup, contact your webhost and see if they have a backup.
many hosts backup regulary ewen if your not paying ekstra for it.

but hurry, backups are only stored for so long, before overwritten by newer backup

Unless you cleared the database of what was already there you shouldn't have been able to do much damage.

Try to run upgrade scripts, run the maintence tools and see what you've got left.
