drupal. 6 letters, and so much pain.

i upgraded the drupal installation on, as fantastico requested, a few minutes ago. and now. well now it's messed up, that's what. now i have to go and fix this mess.


ok, what now? i followed the instructions given to restore in case of emergency, and now nothing displays on bah. another late night. the instructions below:

- delete all the files listed in /home/***/public_html/fantastico_fileslist.txt
- delete /home/***/public_html/fantastico_fileslist.txt
- Untar /home/***/fantastico_backups/.backup.*****.tgz
- Empty the database ***_drpl*
- Import the file /home/***/fantastico_backups//backup.sql into the database ***_drpl*
- Move /home/***/fantastico_backups/ to /home/***/public_html
I'm just a little unsure about that last point, because the backups folder only has backup files in it, but i did copy the files that were backed up from the .tgz file into the public_html folder.

any ideas? re-install drupal and forget about the changes i made?
