Unfortunately it will be a moot point now the upgrade installer the company
i'm with kinda...screwed up.  Even though I had a small backup area of the
1.6.5 wiki files and backed up the wiki database prior to upgrading it still
fouled up some how.  Now I get an error stating it has a problem with an
unknown column in the user_edits area and can't find the column nor do I
know where to go to fix it.

Is there any way to find the wiki pages within the database backup and put
them into the new Wiki?  What database table are the wiki files stored on so
I can delete that file from the test DB then upload to see if I can reclaim
what I lost.  Only good thing that's come out of this is the software is now
up to date being 1.16 so I can use template files atleast.
