[resolved] Upgrade deleted prior version but failed to upgrade (3 posts)

    I had version 1.9.6 and just tried to perform the upgrade of the plugin. It failed reporting that it couldn't delete the previous version. Yet, when I go back to my plugin page, It is gone as is the side menu...

    What do i need to do to (a) install the plugin again, (b) not loose all my existing work/galleries (or is it too late for that already)?

    Thank you for any help!

    I tried merely installing the new version, since the prior version appears to be gone and receive and error: "Destination folder already exists. /wp-content/plugins/nextgen-gallery/

    Plugin install failed."

    Anyone know how to get things back in order at this point?

    I FTPed into the webserver, deleted the plugin folder and the performed a fresh install. Luckly for me, my galleries and images all appear to be intact!!!
