Back to where we are now (took less time than writing this report)..  however, I am not further along yet.

Any thoughts on how to Proceed?

Interesting process.  Almost went without a hitch.

As a followup.. Tried a straight TKLBAM restore from Hardy also

I am ending up at the same place whether via Akeeba Backup or via TKLRestore trying to move from a Hardy to a Lucid Joomla Install.

Database Error: Unable to connect to the database:Could not connect to MySQL

I will look at this some.  It could be the InnoDB subject.  It could be something wrong in the new configuration.php file for Joomla.

Seemed like the restore went well otherwise.  I can get into WebMin and Shell in a Box no problem.  I will explore some more.
