ok more progress, i did have errors on the upgrade script, it couldn't find my tables cause i did not have the right prefix in. so i corrected that and only got two errors after upgrade.php
Performing MySQL command: ALTER TABLE galleryusergroups ADD uplimit INT(5) DEFAULT '0' NOT NULL ... Error: Duplicate column name 'uplimit'
Performing MySQL command: ALTER TABLE gallerycategories ADD ugnovote VARCHAR(255) NULL AFTER ugnopost ... Error: Duplicate column name 'ugnovote'
So, now I get my gallery page back with this error at the top:
Warning: mysql_fetch_row(): supplied argument is not a valid MySQL result resource in /home/apug002/public_html/gallery/forums/vb3.php on line 316
As well as it tells me I am not a valid administrator
