General Error - Could not get style data, any help?

Post by PraetorianGuard »

Your board's URL: swe.swrw.net/rp_universe/
Version of phpBB3: 3.0.4
Was this a fresh install or a(n) update/upgrade/conversion (please be specific)?: Neither, It was an attempt to move a forum across domains, without having the original forum files
Did you use an automated wizard provided by your host to install phpBB?: No
MODs you have installed: None
When the problem started: Right away
Your level of expertise (be honest): I do have some experience in this, but suspect the problem is database related.

The error came after moving the forum from one domain and to another one. Sadly I didn't have access to the original forum files and had to install a clean phpbb3 installation and then restore the database backup into. And now Im getting this error. But is there anything to do to fix it?

Well what style were you using before moving the board? You have to simply upload it to your styles folder.

Got it to work temporarily when I had it at another forum by simply replacing the styles related tables with the ones from the working forum to at least get the forum to show the topics and forums. But now its not working after I moved it to its final place where it is gonna be

Try to delete all files in /Cache dir except .htaccess and Index.html
or
hit Ctrl+F5 to refresh your browsers cache.

What is the style name that you are using?

The forum originally used blackbox, but I guess I could try restoring the original database again. The only problem is that the servername and such wouldn't match up.

Enter the ACP with this link:

yourforum.com/adm/index.php?style=1

If that doesn't work try an other style_id. (this method will only work if you didn't removed all the other styles)
