XF 1.1 [b5] Incomplete Upgrade

I upgraded 1.00 to 1.1b5 and had some trouble with the files uploading. The first time I uploaded the files, it never finished and failed. I uploaded them a second time and all but one file was uploaded. The file was Cron.php. No matter what I tried, it wouldn't upload. It looked like it uploaded on the previous attempt (same date) so I went ahead with the upgrade.

In my admin panel, the thread pre-fixes link doesn't exsist and when I go to thread pre-fixes under the forum tab, it says I have error/ no permission. The custom profiles fields also don't show in the post with the option checked.

Is there anyway to rebuild the templates etc. after another upload attempt or would I need to wait for b6/rc1 (or even do a fresh install).

Thanks

I re-uploaded and followed the above but nothing changes. Is this a server problem? FTP client problem? The server was acting up last week but the file health check doesn't find anything wrong.

Here is what I'm getting:

File Health Check (okay):

No thread pre-fixes under applications:

This shows under the forum:

And this is what happens when I follow the link:

This is just a permissions thing then - a super administrator will need to explicitly give those to you. (The super admins are configured via a comma-delimited list of user IDs in library/config.php.)

Check your permissions:

Admin CP -> Users -> Administrators -> [click your name] -> Manage threads and posts

You might have to make yourself a super admin by adding this line to your library/config.php file:

Code:
$config['superAdmins'] = '1';
Enter your user_id.
