Hi - Opening the DB backup in notepad I see: ('version','3.2.3',0).
From what I can make out, although my host control panel lets me highlight and click 'Restore' on the database backup - and then says, 'Database restored' nothing actually happens.
As the coalman said: there's a red flag waving at the moment.
From what I gather, you did not restore the database backup using the phpBB feature, nor using phpMyAdmin, but using a host feature.
That makes me think that the database backup was made using a host tool.
Your safest bet is to restore the 3.2.3 files and database you had and then to retry updating.
