Here is where I stand Now!

SMF 2.1 RC3 https://rebelsarcade.com/index.php

I deleted the arcade forum, cleared everything from the cPanel, cleared all cookies and data, did a hard refresh.

I ran the smf installer, for arcadeholics and it keeps giving me a error page, so I clicked to install in rebels.

Ran the smf installer for SMF 2.1 RC3, I now have the arcade forum installed in theoverg_arcadeholics database, this is what I wanted.

Next I installed repair_txt, opened the page and made changes from https://rebelsarcade.com to the following https://arcadeholics.net, changed everyone that was saying rebelsarcade, rechecked 3 times. Next clicked on Save.

Now when repair page comes back, https://arcadeholics.net is where I made the changes, but then it says something about desired, and all are saying https//:rebelsarcade.com.

So I click on the link in my favourites, and get a white page with black fonts, and everything down the left side. Do a hard refresh, get he same looking page.

Back to the repair page and click to revert back, which it did. The arcade forum is up and showing, but not with what I wanted..

Anyone have any ideas as to why this is happening. And I did everything the correct way..

One other thing that troubles me is I deleted all traces of a forum I had installed, and yet when I click that link, it takes me to the arcade I just installed. Strange happenings.

The white page with black fonts means that you don't have the last theme you had the forum on installed. You can do one of two things.

1.  Upload that theme and run repair_settings.php to make sure it is pointing to that theme.

2.  Try to navigate to Admin -> Themes and Layouts -> Theme Settings. At the bottom you should see a button that says "Attempt to reset all themes". Click it. OR try to change the theme to the default theme and then install your themes.

It is also possible that you've made a typo in the repair_settings as I see in your post above:

Should be "https://" Not "https//:"

That link we my error in typing.

I set the default skin to default for all. Install repair_settins using the FTP. Opened the page, changed all the urls to https://arcadeholics.net, clicked on Save. When I look at the page arcadeholics is where I made the change, but still shows Recommend Value as rebelsarcade. I have reset back to normal.

Now I have nothing, page opens to a error now.

I am wondering if this may have anything to do with what is happening.

The name of the forum is rebelsarcade.com, and is installed in database theoverg_arcadeholics.

See images below.

Do not use the recommended value. It is telling you that because it see the old forum and that's what the db is set to. Just make sure all of the settings point to the new arcade's directories and urls.

trouble is the recommend values all stay the same, they never change. Is this the way it is suppose to be after clicking Save?

I'll try again see what happens.

Thanks Steve.
