We're sorry, but the system experienced an unrecoverable error. Please try again later.

Have you entered the correct vb database info on the config and the correct table prefix on step 4. I mean the next database thing is the grabbing of the vb usergroup info.

i think so Chuck as the tables for classifieds have been created and it is the same database for both forum and classifieds except the classifieds is using a table prefix

I would have to see your site because my test site is a vb4 classifieds setup
Main Index - PhotoPost Classifieds (http://www.reeftalk.com/classifieds)

As posted in my initial post in this thread you did not put the correct table prefix for your vb tables which was vb where asked on step 4 thats why you got the unrecoverable error because we could not grab your vb info.

damn, first vbulletin install and so was looking for a prefix in the format of vb_ sorry for wasteing your time.
I have another issue now though.
The integrated VB4 header is being mangled when inside classifieds, see images below, the search input field and button should be at the far right (as per vb site) but they are being pushed down below the rest of the navbar on the left ?

I would suspect you have a stylevar named search in your custom vb style which is going to conflict with our rewrite code for the forum search
You would need to rename your style class in the css to say find not search and in the header change the class call from search to find if you follow

I'm getting the same error on my site, but my forum doesn't have any table prefixes.
It's IPB3: Forumul ciclism.ro (http://www.ciclism.ro/forums/)
