    Tried to do this, but I’m afraid your description isn’t clear enough for me.
    First, backuped homedirectory and database ofcourse.

    Then I deleted the database and created a new empty one (same name, no tables).
    Tried to do the upgrade, but couldn’t do this (I assume there are some tables needed).

    Second try:
    Deleted the database, created new on (same name, no tables).
    Then started import the backup with phpmyadmin, no problem.
    Tried to update, but the same problem (ofcourse: sales_flat_order was also imported).

    I assume I have to create a database with tables, but no data?
    Then update, then import old backup database?
    If so, how do I create such a database?
