Re: Ready to Give Up!!!!!!
Ask your server people to restore your site to a previous version of your store and database. That is, back up to just before you started to do the upgrade. It's an extreme solution, but it will work.
What version of 1.3.9 were you on? If it wasn't 1.3.9h, then you can easily upgrade to that and you're secure and stable.
But others here, more experience in 1.5.0 and serrors, may be able to help you get the new store going, so wait a bit before following my advice to see what they say.
