Help - Vbulletin aren't helping me

Hi folks

I hope you can help me with a problem that's broken my forum.

I moved my forum files up one level into the root directory of my server which worked fine. But while I was at the server, I uninstalled Joomla using softaculous and this has broken my forum.

I asked vbulletin for help, but a previous support ticket has been unanswered for a week, so I've no idea how long they will take to answer this new query.

Pms work fine. I can access blogs, its just when I click on a subject/post within my forum I get this error message (below). Have you any idea how I can put this right?

It doesn't look like my forum is talking to the database correctly. And please note, that due to a previous error, vbulletin put my board into debug mode.

Please note, I am not technical, so if you can "baby walk" me through what I need to do.

My forum is located at www.forumbox.co.uk (Note: that when you click on that link it takes you to my old forum location and I don't know how to change that either. The old location is www.forumbox.co.uk/forum)

Many thanks

Something's a bit weird there.

I'm going to go and have a look into it for you.

Almost fixed, just got one niggly issue to sort.

OK I think you're 100% good to go.

Main issues were a considerable number of legacy files from other products which were interfering with vBulletin. vB5 doesn't play well with non-vB5 files and tracking down and removing those fixed most things.

Also one or two old vB3 or vB4 files hanging around.

Also multiple copies of the forum itself in a folder called /forum/ which will mess with the URL redirects vB5 uses.

Finally a handful of corrupted files.

I've replaced all the files on the server, cleaned out all the unwanted stuff, and I think you'll find everything works now. Let me know if not.
