Upgrade 3.2.1-2 fail

So after much ado, moving the install to a different server, making sure PHP and mysql are running the latest versions, and setting disable_path_info = On (before this we had a blank screen) we get all the way to clicking the Upgrade button, and then we get the error below:

Moved config, public and files out of the folder, replaced all files and moved them back in. No luck.

Fatal error : Uncaught Exception: DB Error: No such file or directory Query: SHOW COLUMNS FROM plugin_settings LIKE ? in /omp/lib/pkp/classes/db/DAO.inc.php:703 Stack trace: #0 /omp/lib/pkp/classes/db/DAO.inc.php(103): DAO->handleError(Object(ADODB_mysqli), ‘SHOW COLUMNS FR…’) #1 /omp/classes/core/Application.inc.php(205): DAO->retrieve(‘SHOW COLUMNS FR…’, Array) #2 /omp/lib/pkp/classes/plugins/PluginSettingsDAO.inc.php(105): Application::getPluginSettingsContextColumnName() #3 /omp/lib/pkp/classes/plugins/PluginSettingsDAO.inc.php(86): PluginSettingsDAO->getPluginSettings(‘0’, ‘urnpubidplugin’) #4 /omp/lib/pkp/classes/cache/GenericCache.inc.php(63): PluginSettingsDAO->_cacheMiss(Object(FileCache), ‘enabled’) #5 /omp/lib/pkp/classes/plugins/PluginSettingsDAO.inc.php(57): GenericCache->get(‘enabled’) #6 /omp/lib/pkp/classes/plugins/Plugin.inc.php(474): PluginSettingsDAO->getSetting(0, ‘urnpubidplugin’, 'enable in /omp/lib/pkp/classes/db/DAO.inc.php on line 703

We are stumped. Can’t figure out what went wrong and had to revert to a previous backup.

Can someone point me in the right direction?

Best regards
