Hi Chuck S -
Thank you for your quick reply.
The instructions for the upgrade state that you have to use the new config-inc files because of new variables:

$cookie_domain has been added for website cookies. I highly recommend setting this to ".youdomain.com" where
yourdomain is the name of your domain. This will enable cookies to be read across your website regardless
of the URL (i.e. galley.website.com and forums.website.com). If you are using a forum integration you
must have this set in both your forums and photopost.

2) Upload all files - except config-inc.php, unless you modified it from the ZIP file - to
your server. You do not need install.php for an upgrade.
Since your post, I have restored the backup up config files (int and inc) from my backup and now the install has run and stated that it was successful.
However, we are now back to getting the "We're sorry, but the system experienced an unrecoverable error. Please try again later." errors.
Just FYI - made note at the time of uploading that my "new" config-inc.php from the zip file did not contain an entry for $cookie_domain as per the isntructions above. I added an entry for this variable in the config-inc.php file and put it on the server.
I must be doing something wrong.....
Thanks for your expert help!
