Support » Installing WordPress » Unable to “upgrade” after uploading (step3)

  • After running version 2.0 on my site, I am unable to upgrade from my (Firefox) browser window.

    All that I see is the text of the upgrade.php file:

    define(‘WP_INSTALLING’, true);
    if (!file_exists(‘../wp-config.php’))
    die(“There doesn’t seem to be a wp-config.php file. I need this before we can get started. Need more help? We got it. You can create a wp-config.php file through a web interface, but this doesn’t work for all server setups. The safest way is to manually create the file.</p><p>Create a Configuration File“);

    require_once(ABSPATH . ‘wp-admin/includes/upgrade.php’)….

    wp-config.php from my original config was uploaded.

    What should I do now???

  • As far as FTPing, my FTP program ( gives me the option to upload in “smart mode”, ascii mode, and binary.

    Since the wordpress folder was php and images, I first used smart mode. I then reinstalled each folder using ASCII mode for the .PHP files and used binary mode on the image files.

    Does anyone understand what is the difference between an ascii upload and binary upload? I presume it has to do with a file termination tag. I’d like to understand this better.

    Thanks in advance!

    I’ve reinstalled version 2.5. In reading some of the other install directions, some imply that the program should not be installed in a folder named /wordpress.

    My pervious version was installed in /wordpress and it worked fine. Does this matter?
