Re: Botched Upgrade, can’t find .htacess
Sounds like permalinks are creating a problem. Turn them off in your config.php and see if you can view posts.
Make this line in your config.php look like this:
$bb->mod_rewrite = false;
(maybe it says true or slugs now)
I don’t believe an .htaccess files comes with a default install. You would need to create one, so there won’t be one anywhere unless you created it, and it goes in the root folder of your forum. You can take care of that later, once you can at least see your posts.
