I switched from vb to xf couple of weeks ago and everything went well but today I am getting these errors:

Database error in vBulletin :

Cannot use database user_forum

MySQL Error : Unknown database 'user_forum' Error Number : 1049 Request Date : Wednesday, January 14th 2015 @ PM Error Date : Wednesday, January 14th 2015 @ 08:55:14 PM Script : http://www.mywebsite.com/showthread.php?p=122545 Referrer : IP Address : Username : Classname : vB_Database MySQL Version :


"user_forum" database is there, its the old vb database. when i click on the URL, it redirects to the new thread URL. why the errors?

Nothing in XF should be accessing the vBulletin database and the error indicates it is originating using vBulletin files, which is realistically something we cannot support.

Jeremy,

Thanks. Only vb files I have are the ones which came with the vbredir add-on to redirect old URLs... not sure why all of a sudden the errors started though.
