Upgrade problem

I uploaded all files of Beta 6 to my server and then went to myforum/install

It asked me for Username/Password

I forgot the username password of my admin

I am trying to reset the password, but it keeps saying "Board is currently being upgraded"

How do I remove this message?

Hmm. I haven't tested that, but I am guessing you can't access the password reset form during an upgrade because of that message. It may be necessary to restore a backup of your files so that you can access the reset form.
Unfortunately I do not have the back up of the files. I only do database backups :(

What is the file that automatically tells the system that it needs to be upgraded to a higher version. May be if I can delete that file, the problem will go away

Or may be some one can provide me a link to download Beta 5?

You can try adding another superadmin to config.php.
I don't know it it will work but it's worth a try.

You just need to know the userid of the user you want to add.

Edit: Problem solved it would seem.

Always make a backup.

Previous betas are not available for download. If you saved the beta 5 zip file on your computer then you can use those files.

I am sure there is a query you can run to manually reset your password, but I don't know it.
