    What hacks have you installed on your 2.3.4 if any?

      I've installed the Trader Rating hack and the ShoutBox hack.

      [edit:

      Aaargh! Now it's not even letting me run the upgrade script giving me the "You've already tried to run this script...please revert database" error again]

        That's because some of the vB3 tables have already been added to this database. You need to restore the vB2 db to a new database, point config.php to it, and try again. You should also run the database conflicts script on this before proceeding:

          How do I do this when my provider only allows for one mySQL database?

            Then unfortunately you can't. The other option is to manually drop the vB3-only tables from the database. You will need to compare the vB2 table list to the vB3 table list and make sure you don't delete the vB2 ones. I strongly recommend you make a verified backup using telnet or ssh before doing this.

            Code:
            vB2 tables:
            access
            adminlog
            adminutil

              I started back over from scratch again, but this time ran this script you linked here beforehand. I altered the tabelnames/columnnames that it pointed out to me and then reran the vB3.0.1 Upgrade again. Everything went perfectly and effortlessly.

              Thank you so much for you help.

              Now I'm off to figure out how to get an image as the background of my page...
