Keymaster reset issue

  • Hi, I am installing the newest version of (0.8.1) but using an older bbpress database (upgraded)… and have lost my keymaster info.

    I have followed instructions here:

    But when I run install.php again, nothing happens — the page simply says : You appear to have already installed bbPress. Perhaps you meant to run the upgrade scripts instead? To reinstall please clear your old database tables first.

    I obviously don’t want to delete my old tables.


    Many thanks

    Just run the upgrade (bb-admin/upgrade.php) – it doesn’t delete (or drop or truncate) anything, it just upgrades the database. You can view the source of the functions called by upgrade.php right here:

    If you WANTED to reinstall, you would need to clear the old tables, then run install.php. Don’t do that.

    And with any upgrade script, be sure to backup your database and filesystem first.
