Database Error in Categories (2 posts)

    After I upgraded to 2.3 everything was fine except for the MANAGE-> CATEGORIES view in the admin panel. it is showing this error:

    WordPress database error: [Table 'pushapixel1.wp_categories' doesn't exist]
    SELECT SQL_CALC_FOUND_ROWS * FROM wp_categories WHERE category_parent = '0' ORDER BY cat_name LIMIT 0, 50

    The numbers of posts in each category are still tallying when I write a post so the categories are functioning. I just cannot add new ones.

    Can someone let me know what this means. Ok I know that it means the table is not there but what do I do about it. Is there a file mix up somewhere or maybe an extra one that needs to be deleted? Has anyone else run into this problem? I looked up the mesage in the forums with no luck. Any advice or help would be greatly appreciated.
    Thanks a bunch,
    Justin

    The table wp_categories does not exist in 2.3.

    Please make sure you've uploaded the correct files and complete the upgrade. See Upgrading WordPress Extended.

    Also make sure your plugins and theme are 2.3 compatible:
