[Mediawiki-l] 1.15.0 to 1.16.2 Upgrade problem

Hello Folks,

I just attempted to upgrade my wiki ( http://pipedia.org ) from Mediawiki
1.15.0 to 1.16.2. After running the update I'm missing tables that 1.16.2 is
looking for.

After uploading the new files I first tried using the installer to run the
update from the web. Initially it reported that the database was schema 4
and it would not be able to update it to schema 5, but it looked like it
updated tables anyway? Apparently not, or not all of them. I then re-ran the
installer with the backwards compatibility option and still had issues so I
ran the update.php script using SSH shell access. It ran without reporting
any errors, but I'm still getting errors indicating the database didn't
update correctly.

This is using  PHP 5.2.15 (cgi-fcgi) and MySQL: 5.1.52.

Do you think the issues are related to the schema 4 data base or did I botch
things up trying to use the installer first?

Fortunately I've got a back up of the database and all my files pre-upgrade
'd really appreciate any help in getting this straightened out.

Thanks, Scott
