    Today we decided to completely restart our forums.

    We wiped everything, and then proceeded to reinstall.

    During the installation, we always run into this error.

    We've created new databases, but can't seem to get around the error.

    Thanks for your support,

    Have you attempted to reupload the files? It looks like one of your XML files may have uploaded incorrectly.

    Hello, I help with the web development and management of SauceVille. I have attempted uploading the files 4 different times. I've received this full error as well as just "String could not be parsed as XML" with no further information. We're going to attempt to re-download new files, and upload them again and see if we have any luck. Thanks for the speedy reply!

    Hey @King Kovifor,

    We reuploaded again, only to have the same error.

    What is the content of /{root}/install/data/style_properties.xml?

    Also, is the file readable by scripts on the server?

    Seems that its all there, and the file is readable by scrips on the server.

    Are you able to restart Apache and clear any caches you have on the server (xCache, MemCache, etc.)?

    When checking our web cashe control tool it is saying we aren't casheing anything. We are currently sending a ticket requesting a reset of Apache to see if that may resolve the problem, though it may take a while for the ticket to be answered.

    Our server host says it isn't possible to do either of your suggestions.

    What's our next option?

    I had another go, and it decided to work. Not sure why, but it did.

    Thanks for your support however :)
