No worries. I realized I was probably going to want it at root rather than the sub I made.
I dropped th eprefixed tables and re-clean installed. Sorta.
I missed the zipdata so got that duplicate try error.
A bunch of other dups as I went through the upgrade links.
I do have a number of duplicate entries on admin-index. At search and mail. I'll go back over the error messages AND poke around in the tables to see what's up.
Otherwise, we be close.
Thanx for all the help, I really appreciate it.
