I've had my forums for several years and things got kind of cluttered and things weren't working properly due to all the upgrades, mod changes, etc over the years. It was recommended that I do the following to pretty much start from scratch but keep all my database information:
Log on and change your forum to the default smf theme.
Get a matching smf zip to your forum version and unzip it.
FTP upload all the files EXCEPT Settings.php overwriting all the ones you have.
navigate to \Packages and delete installed.list
navigate to \Packages\backups\ and delete everything except htaccess and index.php
Thats the forum back to brand new but with all your data still there.....so off you go to package manager and install some mods
And extra themes with moded files would need replace/modded to suit
After doing this, everything works fine and all my information is still intact. I've been able to reinstall all of my essential mods except Tiny Portal. So, this is what I need help with.
I go to my admin section, packages and click apply mod on the latest tiny portal (same one I used before) and instead of getting the usual "These files are going to be edited screen" I'm getting the following error:
Database Error: Lost connection to MySQL server during query
That line has the following code:
LIMIT 1", __FILE__, __LINE__);
Anyone know what I need to do to successfully reinstall Tiny Portal to my forums? I love using it and it's a huge part of my site. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
edit: sorry, here's my versions in case they are needed smf 1.1.6 and TinyPortal 1.052
