This step is wrong.  You don't have to manually put the pg_xlog files in
the pg_xlog directory -- you have to let the recovery_command copy them
back from the archive area.  Note that recovery.conf does not go into
the share/ directory, but in data/.  And it must be present _only_ when
you want the system to attempt the recovery, not before.

Also I didn't see any pg_start_backup() nor pg_stop_backup() calls in
your procedure.
