Re-installing 3.8.4 can I recover....

Admincp corrupted. Provider and I cannot fix. Tried a backup install and other methods. I am going to re-intall vb 3.8.4 after deleting all databases and files.

I have a backup on pc of forums from several months ago. Can I recover from that the members and just the form threads and posts.

Thanks in advance for any help or suggestions!

You'd be far better off installing 3.8.11. It contains a number of security upgrades over 3.8.4.

There are methods of importing single tables from one database to another.

There is, however, no guarantee that those are not also corrupted.

Thank you for your reply In Omnibus!

I went to vbulletin to purchase 3.8.11 it was not available.

I'm pretty sure only the admincp files were corrupted, I will do a search for how to upload those other files.

I'm wondering if there is a way to start your forums from the provider side bypassing the admin control panel....

You have to purchase vBulletin 5 connect in order to download the 3.8.11.

I would suggest you to stick with 3.8.4 and restore the site first, later you decide it from there.
