im continuing my issue here per the rules.. sorry for my mistake

now.. to quote test's response

midwestss...please post bugs and problems in the "Bugs & Problems" board of this forum.

To help you out for now...DO NOT combine config files...YAF versions vary greatly. Start with a fresh, clean v1.9.3 install...get it working, then MIGRATE your current data over. Will save you serious headaches!

Continue this in a proper post please.....

ok now the install.txt file says to combine them, thats why i was doing that.

i have YAF installed to the root of my site, so im confused on how to upgrade it to 1.9.3

the install.txt

"

You need to rename the "v191-upgrade-web.config" to "web.config" as it contains

necessary settings for the YAF membership providers to support backwards

compatibility with older YAF databaes. It's required that you merge these settings

into your existing "web.config" file. If you need to do development with an

upgraded installation, please use "dev-v191-upgrade-web.config"."

sorry for the confusion...I thought your where trying to merge the web, db, mail, app, etc config files into one. The instructions in install.txt are correct.

Still, try to get a fresh install working before changing anything.

this line


<section name="rewriter" type="Intelligencia.UrlRewriter.Configuration.RewriterConfigurationSectionHandler, Intelligencia.UrlRewriter" requirePermission="false"/>

is being defined multiple times in the web.config -- look around for it.
