HTTP 404 error installation problem - update to 2.8.4 (2 posts)

    I have replace all my server files with 2.8.4 files but left the databases untouched
    I've updated the config.php file using the old DB

    When I log onto the site www,jeffpinkham.com nothing happens
    When I ran the install.php, I received a WordPress message that it was already installed and advising me to clear the databases to do a new install

    I want to keep all my old posts which is the reason for keeping the databases. I also want to upgrade to 2.8.4. The automatic upgrade to 2.8.3 failed and corrupted my system which is why I'm trying to do it manually.

    I have FTPed the content of 2.8.4 to my site then I changed the config.php file and now I'm stuck .
    What to do next?
    Regards
    Jeff
