We have an existing Omeka 2.3.1 installation. Rather than upgrade in place, I created a new Omeka 2.4 folder and copied db.ini, files, plugins, and customized themes to the new folder.
This resulted in a

message when the page is visited.
Some online research indicated that this meant the database needed to be upgraded, so I created a new database, mysqldump'ed the data from the old omeka database to a file, configured the new site (e.g. set up a superuser, etc), and then sourced the sql dump file to the new database.
Now I'm once again stuck at the Public site is unavailable until the upgrade completes.

However this is not happening. Any suggestions on what I can to do make the new install functional?
