You don't need to run composer install

So I decided to go and replace all my 3.1 board's files with the recent build or whatever. It was on alpha2 -_- And now I'm getting issues that I don't understand:

Code: Select all

Fatal error: Uncaught exception 'Symfony\Component\DependencyInjection\Exception\InvalidArgumentException' with message 'The service definition "pagination" does not exist.' in /home/jesschen/public_html/ascraeus/vendor/symfony/dependency-injection/Symfony/Component/DependencyInjection/ContainerBuilder.php:705 Stack trace: #0 /home/jesschen/public_html/ascraeus/vendor/symfony/dependency-injection/Symfony/Component/DependencyInjection/ContainerBuilder.php(343): Symfony\Component\DependencyInjection\ContainerBuilder->getDefinition('pagination') #1 /home/jesschen/public_html/ascraeus/includes/acp/acp_logs.php(49): Symfony\Component\DependencyInjection\ContainerBuilder->get('pagination') #2 /home/jesschen/public_html/ascraeus/includes/functions_module.php(604): acp_logs->main('logs', 'admin') #3 /home/jesschen/public_html/ascraeus/adm/index.php(71): p_master->load_active() #4 {main} thrown in /home/jesschen/public_html/ascraeus/vendor/symfony/dependency-injection/Symfony/Component/DependencyInjection/ContainerBuilder.php on line 705

Must be something obvious. I might as well reinstall my test board. Here it goes..

EDIT: Never mind I think I got it

EDIT #2: or maybe not.

Did you replace _all_ files?

Try clearing out the cache directory (except htaccess and index files)
