Well, the upgrade didn't complete because whichever user credentials
were in use weren't sufficient to alter the database.

The upgrader needs to be able to create and alter tables, indices,
etc. Create a user with appropriate permissions on the database
("GRANT ALL..." is fine) and update AdminSettings.php with this user's
credentials, then re-run the upgrader.
