I have upgraded to 5.0 but got errors on 3 rd step it didn't ahve permissions to find and fix some image files.
Went on to other steps and at the step it said it would clean up files that were no longer used it gave lots of errors and didn't remove those files.
I was not able to save those errors as it went on to last step that said to remove upgrade.php file.
Can I compare the files that are in PP 5 zip and delete the files on my server that are not in the zip for 5.0 since the upgrade didn't remove the files I no longer need.
It shows as being upgraded but I got a couple problems.
I only have blank thumbnails and waiting to see what I need to do before trying to rebuild. mini medium and full images don't show at all.
Also on gallery page the tables are not the same as with 4.8.6 so now I have to scroll my page to see the gallery as before wuth 4.8.6 I didn't ahve taht problem.

I guess I ahve really messed up as I did run the scan to rebuild thumbs.
I do have a home backup and all the original files from photopost 4.8.6 saved inclucing the data files.
My problem is not sure how to redo my data base if its messed up.
I will be glad to give admin info for help on this one.
What I have is the backups from my server cpanel where it says backups.
I have two data base .gz files and the one big backup-iloco.org-3-3-2005.tar.gz file.
Will these help get my images back. I got these right before doing the 5.0 upgrade.
Are these consider mysql backups. I am lost when it comes to understanding a lot about mysql.
I have installed the two mysql data bases and now reinstalling all my 4.8.6 photo files so I can get back into photopost.
Takes a while with how I am doing it but will let you know when finished. may be couple hours as I have to run and help a friend.
