      Eh, what? Therer is no way you can get this error based on what you've said. Sorry I didn't make that clear. There is something you aren't telling me.

            well so here's the recap:
            old board got hacked...then i backed up the board. obtained the big .sql word file (board version was 3.5.3)

            setup another board(versioe 3.6.1)..on another database and want to apply the old board backup to the newly installed board

            so i installed the new board and using myphpadmin uploaded the .sql file-uploaded successfully--ran the upgrade.php but ran into this error:

            Invalid SQL:
            ALTER TABLE post_parsed RENAME postparsed;

            MySQL Error : Table 'postparsed' already exists
            Error Number : 1050

                As I said in post #4 you need to restore that backup to a new database, not an existing one.

                    No. You do not run install.php. Please see post #4 again.

                      oh...so i'm guessing the .sql backup file has all of the forum files and such? just in one entire package?

                        No. The backup has the database info only.

                          ok i'm really confused now as to what needs to uploaded where:

                          1.) .sql file in a new database

                          what else needs to uploaded where? the "upload" folder? what? sorry.. even in the documentation it just says "uploade the .sql file" and thats it..

                          i'm just a little confused on what needs to uploaded where..thats all

                            Look at post #4. And then if you don't understand those instructions, please state what it is that you don't understand and I'll try to clarify it for you.

                                Asa per post #4 you should restore the backup to a new database, edit your config.php to point to that db then run upgrade.php.
