    I set the board to inactive today so I could upgrade it to 1.2 and upgrade some addons, now when i attempt to access admin.php i just get the inactive message I set rather than being allowed to login to the admin panel.

    Is there somewhere in SQL I can set the board back to active so I can access everything again.

    thanks

    Administrators can always access the front and back end even when the forum is closed.

    What is the message you get when you navigate directly to the ACP?

    The login is always available for all members, even when the forum is closed.

    What is the URL to your site?

    Can you send me the log in details via Conversation so I can check?

    ive managed to fix it by restoring my public_html from last nights backup. it appears i tried to do too much at once. I set the board to inactive and then uploaded the upgrade files for XF 1.2 - As soon as i restored the backup which removed those files everything was fine.

    You didn't say you had uploaded the 1.2 files.
    All you needed to do was navigate to /install to complete the upgrade.
