I was able to manually "overwrite" the Default Joomla Lucid with the Joomla Hardy Files, and I was able to do an sql dump and "execute" in webmin-mysql to update teh Hardy Data Files. I even got it to start up after I cleared cache on the back end.
I cannot, however, get PHPMyAdmin to start up. Basically times out.
Contrast to TKLBAM overwrite of Fresh Lucid Joomla Install, with Hardy Joomla Backup. In that situation I basically killed MYSQL. I tried deleting/renaming the 0 and 1 (/var/lib/mysql) log files as mentioned in InnoDB but no effect on the Joomla Port.
I have done a few "apt-get updates". I also did a Curl Install to get Joomla to behave properly.
Thoughts on how to get PHPMyAdmin working? The Webmin-Mysql is fine for doing a batch import without a lot of questions being asked but not for really working with the data much.
thank you for any help,
