Upgrade troubles from b2 .61 (3 posts)

    I'm trying to install the latest version of WordPress. Currently I'm running b2 0.61. In the WordPress b2config.php I made the names of my SQL tables wp+* instead of b2* in order to keep my current db in place until I complete the upgrade. Will this not work or did I just do something wrong? I ran wp-install and then b2-2-wp afterwards. If it's possible to import my old b2 tables I'd like to save them. Below is the text of the error message I get in step 2 of b2-2-wp:
    ---------BEGIN ERROR TEXT--------
    Step 2
    First we’re going to add excerpt, post, and password functionality...
    SQL/DB Error --
    [Table 'wantmoore_com.wordpress_posts' doesn't exist]
    SQL/DB Error --
    [Table 'wantmoore_com.wordpress_posts' doesn't exist]
    That went well! Now let's clean up the b2 database structure a bit...
    SQL/DB Error --
    [Table 'wantmoore_com.wordpress_posts' doesn't exist]
    One down, two to go...
    SQL/DB Error --
    [Table 'wantmoore_com.wordpress_settings' doesn't exist]
    So far so good.
    SQL/DB Error --
    [Table 'wantmoore_com.wordpress_settings' doesn't exist]
    Almost there...
    SQL/DB Error --
    [Table 'wantmoore_com.wordpress_users' doesn't exist]
    All done!
    -------END ERROR TEXT---------
    Thanks in advance for the help!

    Hi
    You can *either* install a fresh blog into new tables *or* you can upgrade your existing tables.
    You are, in effect trying to do both.
    You should backup both your old b2 database and all your old b2 files, then upload the wp files (or put them in a new folder) set the table names to be your b2 tabled names and thne use the upgrade script.

    Yeah, I figured I was making things to complicated. I was hoping to keep the b2 db intact while I upgraded to WordPress and played with the templates and configuration. Anyone happen to know if the older version of b2 can still read the updated tables?
