Ah thank you!  Alright, so the database is completely restored now it 
seems.  My original website works well from what I see.  Now I will try 
the update again all over, and probably just use SSH to make the 
backups, since its much easier.

Also, it would be a good idea, along with making a copy of the 
directories and files, to just make a second copy of the database and 
use that?  I would have to edit the localconf file to make sure that the 
site will use the new copy right?
