I just copied across the old forum, upgraded it with all addons turned off, reapplied the new version of the custom style. So looking good so far. Then went to import the data, and of course (duh!) it copied across everything. When I hit the site again after that it asked me to UPGRADE, although I had already done this, but clearly I copied across some 1.2 files or something similar. So I hit GO and the site upgrades. Then when I look in the addons section it appears that all the addons are live, even though they were disabled when I installed 1.2 the first time.
So I now have two questions:
1. Is my installation ruined because of the second install (it seems to work apart from the error below in the admin homepage (health check comes up )

2. If you think its OK - how can I get all my users and user content/preferences across without buggering up the install again.
p.s. I uninstalled and reinstalled again a nodes as tab fyi and it all seems to work fine. So hoping the rest are too.
