Hi, I'd really like to install 1.5. I have used 3 different ftp clients trying to upload all the unzipped 1.5 folders and files to my web site. Seems my web host can't do passive ftp. So when I set the ftp client to do active mode, I can get about 30-50 percent of the wordpress 1.5 folders/files to upload. Then all at once, I start getting 500 errors, then the ftp client switches to passive mode and I begin getting more errors, until I get a boat load of "critical errors" and the ftp upload simply stops.
I've sent a dozen messages to my web host folks. They have tried a ton of ideas and finally switched me to a different server. Still the problems continue.
I have NEVER had this problem uploading via ftp before, so I don't know why it's happening when I try it with wordpress. And, no, I didn't have wordpress 1.2.2 installed. This is a fresh install.
