Fatal error: Uncaught exception 'ADODB_Exception'

I updated to the latest version of concrete5 everything was working fine, made a few changes to site which I wasn't happy with so decided to backup from an old restore that's when I get the error message (below), the older version would have been on an older version of concrete5 just need to find a way to correct things but now
cant get into my dashboard from the website.

Can somebody PLEASE advise me what to do?

Hi David,
My guess here is that concrete5 is still using the updated *files* but the previous *database*.

When concrete5 updates itself from concrete5.org, it places the new core files in the

directory of your site. The original earlier versions remain. Then it adds a line to

That loooks something like
<?php define('DIR_APP_UPDATED', ''); ?>

at the bottom.

Now here is the part that requires a little investigating/remembering.

Your /updates folder will contain each version that has been updated to and your core /concrete directory will contain the files of the original version you installed.

If this is your first update and your /updates folder only contains one set of files, then you lucked out, and simply delete the DIR_APP_UPDATED entry in /config/site.php and concrete5 will start using the original core /concrete files again.

If this is not your first update then you need to figure out which version of concrete5 you have restored your database from and set the version number in
<?php define('DIR_APP_UPDATED', ''); ?>

Replace with the version of the restored databse. If you don't know the version of your database you should find it in that database's "Config" table in the field SITE_APP_VERSION.

So don't worry, your almost there.

This just happened to me and all I did was go into PHPMyAdmin and click "repair tables" and it is fixed.

Make sense? Nothing changed over the last several months so I don't know why I got this error, but I fixed it brainlessly just by repairing the tables.
