Perhaps. There are easier ways, but the basic procedure is valid,... EXCEPT
At steps b/c) - are you saying that you did a db_load with the files
(changes copies transactions revisions uuids representations strings nodes)

If so, this is likely the cause of the "Invalid change ordering" error you

Delete __db.* log.* AND *s
Then redo your db_load commands.
