The drywall or shower wall system goes over the lip of the shower base. It is one or the other. And green board should not be used. It is outlawed in most places. But Home Centers still carry it since they cater to the innocent and uninformed general public. Green board was an experiment gone wrong. Research and history has shown that all installations in wet areas with this material will be moldy.
