    Between this and all your other post on importing from vBulletin 4 to XenForo

    There is clearly something wrong with your database or perhaps some rouge modification you had on vBulletin. You're the 1st person to report any serious issues (not that would make you feel any better, sorry).

    So if I understand you correctly, everything re-directs to that or all the post now have that link within them?!

    okay this is scary....
    Okay so, From front page (index.php) if I click on any Latest post link showing by forum name. It redirects me to that page.
    I had so many plugin on Vb4. but before import I pretty much disabled all of them. except post thank you hack and vbseo.

    I can give you access to my test forum if you like for better understanding.

    I did that Jake, however I did not let it complete the process. I stopped rebuilding cache after 80% I guess.

    The importer should have done all that upon completing the import.

    Of course a 2nd time I guess wouldn't hurt.

    Did it provide you an error of any kind or anything within your error logs?

    edit: Are you sure your browser didn't just time out?

    Are you sure your browser didn't time out?

    And have you checked your site / server error logs (mysql, php, and apache logs)
  11. tafreehm

    tafreehm Well-Known Member

    Well yes !! after every few minutes I have to press some button to continue it.
    and my error logs are full of vb4 errors. I don't event check them anymore.

    I have good news and maybe some bad news.....

    The good news is unless there is a forum I missed.... I can not find the error you are claiming. In fact everything looks wonderful on my end.

    Congratulations! :)

    The bad news is if this is only affecting you and no one else.... There is something infected on your computer or within your browser... Directly you to links such as you claims.

    (To be sure, please send me a link to where you claim to see this)

    Wait... what.... Was this during the import?

    Such important things can not be ignored
  14. tafreehm

    tafreehm Well-Known Member

    no that was during, rebuilding forum cache. import went smooth

    I've registered on your site and can find no errors...... (Still waiting on the confirmation e-mail though)

    If you got errors on rebuilding cache... What were those errors?

    (They shouldn't be vBulletin errors on a XenForo forum .... Something got carried over maybe)

    How is that possible. I checked it from firefox and google chrome, as an admin and as a guest. Both gave me same problem. Take a look at the screenshot

    They reason I had errors was my wifi was fluctuating, so I was keep on getting disconnecting from internet.
    I approve your account !!

    OK, now I see it.... YES, you are correct.

    I can also confirm the error is here as well (hover over the date / time)

    • Clear your error log
    • Rebuild ALL cache options (everything, don't leave anything undone. But do search build last).... We going to see if there is a table locked some where.
    • Reports back with any error you get

    So you think this may have caused because of forum rebuild cache not been completely run ?
  20. Adam Howard

    Adam Howard Well-Known Member

    Seems to affect only the older post (from what I can see on the front end)

    I have 1 of 2 theories.

    1) A table got locked in the build only affecting the time stamps (which would believe it or not affect the short links and time links, which it is). And a rebuild of all the cache (and run all the con jobs too) could correct this (in theory).

    This assuming of course your server (and settings) is properly working the load and things just don't keep locking up on you.

    2) The time stamps are corrupt, but this can be technically ignored (not exactly advised) with the understanding that any new modification you add, may not count the older post.....

    .....Of course you could try the import all over again for the 3rd or 4th (5th ?) time, but this seems to be the best you have done so far, which makes me again suspect corruption.
