Nothing works after upgrading.Any idea what it can be?
i took an full backup via cpanel before upgrading(home folder + mysql).
When restoring it still says xenforo 1.2.1, shall i delete my database and then restore ?

I assume you're trying to restore to 1.1...

If you're restoring your file backup and it still says 1.2.1, I'd be very concerned that the backup isn't complete. Just to be sure, you should probably move all of the old files (rename the directory) and then restore the new ones (make sure ownership/permissions are maintained). I'd do a similar process for the database as well.
well the database i intact. But my isp says its beacuse its my database(sql) user dosent have the permission to the xenforo files after upgrading.since the user in cpanel isent the same as the original install, isp cant restore database users.

thats why i get this error
Access denied for user '*****_******'@'localhost' (using password: YES)

I'm totally lost as to what you're trying to do now (and why), but no you can't really do that. If both forums are running 1.2, you can use the importer but I don't recommend "cleaning" an install like that.

The error you're demonstrating simply shows that the DB user/password is incorrect or that they don't have permission to the database -- all these details are specified in library/config.php. Strictly speaking, there's no reason these issues can't be resolved by using different values in config.php (if they're incorrect) or setting the necessary permissions in MySQL or cPanel. That error is not related to file permission at all. You'd need to contact your host about that though.
I think this error is when i install 1.1.3 i had an different password for my xenforo user (database password) during install.

in the meanwhile i have changed my databse users password in cpanel.
Now when upgrading those passwords dont correspond and im screwed since i dont remmeber the original one i used in 1.1.3.

Look in your configuration file in the library (config.php). It will have the username / password that's being used to access the database.
okay found the password, then changed the cpanel database user to the same ,gonna copy the 1.1.4 version back to home folder and see if i get inn.
:giggle: im back in buisness thanks for the help.

Im must say its temping to upgrade to newest version, but enoufgh screwup from me for one day.
luckelly i had cron jobb running in cpanel.for the database.
mysqldump -u user -ppassword databasename | gzip > /home/gravecrm/backups/name$(date +\%d-\%m-\%Y-\%T).sql.gz
