Issues upgrading from 1.2.1 ro 1.5 (3 posts)

    Here's my process so far:

    Backed up my database and all the old wp files and folders
    Deleted all the files that start with wp
    Left the folders that start with wp intact
    Uploaded all files from the zip of 1.5
    Re-uploaded the wp-config.php file
    Try to run the upgrade.php file but get this error:

    "There doesn't seem to be a wp-config.php file. Double check that you updated wp-config-sample.php with the proper database connection information and renamed it to wp-config.php."

    Any suggestions?

    You should also delete the folders that start with wp-. This might be your problem. Try deleting those and then re-running upgrade.php.

    Actually, it was my mistake which was causing the error. I was attempting to directly upload all of the files from the zip into my root directory instead of unzipping the file (which created the wp-admin folders and such).

    I appreciate your help.
