Thanks for the update and I will do the aforementioned changes, however with all due respect, the upgrade instructions TELL you to upload the config.php file if you have change it.
2) Upload all files - except config-inc.php, unless you modified
it from the ZIP file - toyour server. You do not need install.php for an upgrade.
I change the database info etc in the config file and upload the files, always have done and always will.
