    I was wondering if i download and install the new version if it will delete all the existing posts and settings that i have. Can I just upload the files without worry or will this upgrade completly wipe out all the existing posts?

    The posts and comments and alllll that are in your database. Upgrading your files (following the upgrade instructions to a T) will not alter your posts or comments AT ALL.

    Just be careful with the wp-content folder. This contains anything you'd uploaded (photos, files) and any changes you've made your your theme (design, layout). DO NOT OVERWRITE THESE FILES.

    Other than that you're peachy!
