it's not all that much ... just have to remember to include mysub-domain on the lnwlf.com acct...of my sites this was the only domain to have a problem, it was also the only one transfered to the PS before I had finished running the upgrade for Gallery on the client side..
I think in the long run it will be faster to just scrap the existing install and start over..was looking for an excuse to redo the Gallery layouts anyway....
thanks for your help and time Scott.
Scott- I deleted the gallery directory in my site directory than chose advance install from the one-clicks and ran the install. when doing the client side it tells you the existing db files are not the same version and goes into the upgrade. worked great no data lost at all. all my albums turned up. thanks again for your help today.. later
