XF 1.3 Strange happening after upgrade

Hi all,

Have upgraded from 1.2.2 to 1.3.1, and was told the upgrade had gone OK. Trouble is, when I try to login via my admin, nothing happens apart from the fact I get an 'M' appearing under the username box, and it stays on the login page, so I can't switch my forum back on.

When I try to login to the front end, I just get a server error has occurred message (on a cloud server running PHP 5.4)

I would normally look at my server error logs in the admin back end, but I can't access it. I take it I should be able to access something in my host CPanel.
Have tried everything and am at a bit of a loss to be honest. This error only occurred after I upgraded, the database seems to have been upgraded OK (got a different number of tables), and had the successful upgrade message. Have tried rebuilding the master data with no luck.

When I navigate to your site I just see a regular "You must be logged-in to do that." error message.

Other than that, it all appears fine.
The problem comes when you try to login, that's when the error appears (see my OP). When I try to login to admin, I just get the M appearing after a couple of seconds under the username box.

You can but I'm just about to log off for the night so I won't be able to take a look until tomorrow.

The error is related to a partially failed upgrade.

Please submit a ticket with FTP and phpMyAdmin details and we will get it sorted.
