i'm really lost here... trying to install wp for a friend and i can't do anything with new version. i proved the db and everything works installing my own all version of wp (1.2 i guess) and it works, but when i try to follow instructions for upgrade i receive this message or other strange thinks:
Fatal error: Cannot redeclare timer_start() (previously declared in /h2/retinas.org/home/html/index/wp-settings.php:23) in /h2/retinas.org/home/html/index/wp-includes/functions.php on line 479
so... the problem is i don't understand maybe where to put all the new files... what happened with the folders? if i simply put all files in the root, it says it's not able to find wp-content... but it's there! and i thought the folder called "themes" would be in the zip.. but not, do i have to create it manually?
any help welcome or any link to really detailed installation of new version!
