Thanks for your reply.
As indicated above, I only had about 3 options in the left hand side of the admin programs. However, I edited the rp_settings file directly via mysql and was able to find 2 directory errors including the one you mentioned in the prior message and a double slash (//) in one of the paths. With those corrected, I'm able to access the entire admin section.
However, I'm still unable to display any of my own images on screen. I see them residing in the data directory (/home/www/html/subs/forums/reviews/data) within subdirectories named such as 12 or 13, etc. I'm sure the path to the data file is correct as I can cut and paste it to make a Unix command such as "cd /home/www/html/subs/forums/reviews/data" and it takes me there without error. I also temporarily chmod-ed the image files to 777 to see if it was a permissions problem.
Now, when I display a RP page, I see a "no thumbnail" designation where an image should display (that's progress). I've tried the admin database option to "Check for and create missing thumbnails." That runs and after a minute or so indicates that it is finished but without creating any thumbnails. Here is a sample URL
If I can solve this last problem, it looks like everything will be in order.
Any further suggestions?
Thanks. -- Rik
ps: I'm using the latest 4.x version of vBulletin and only see 3.x options in the admin program. I didn't see a 4.x integration option. Is that fine?
