Hello there,

For several days in a row i have tried to upgrade our Magento installation from I have done this trough Magento Connect Manager and through SSH via terminal on my Mac.

Upgrading works great trough SSH and Connect Manager but after refreshing the browser several times i get stuck on the following error:

[message:protected] => SQLSTATE[42S01]: Base table or view already exists: 1050 Table ‘sales_order_status’ already exists

I tried the solution of the following website:

and modified my config.xml with the following line:
<initstatements>SET NAMES utf8; SET FOREIGN_KEY_CHECKS=0; SET UNIQUE_CHECKS=0;</initstatements>

I also deleted the tables manually, refreshed but i just won’t go any further.

What is wrong?

Please help
