:confused:

Is this the page that has the correct 6.0 download?

https://www.photopost.com/members/members.pl

If so, where are the instructions for exactly what steps I need to take to upgrade it? I opted to install 5.6.2 when I bought it initially because 6.0 was still BETA.

You want photopost 6.0. Just upload the files with ftp and run upgrade.php

Upgrade instructions are contained in the upgrade.txt file in the documentations folder of the downloaded code. There is even a changelog.txt which has specific changes from version to version.

How do I run the Upgrade.php script? :confused:
DO I replace the files that are already there?

Yes replace/overwrite the files that are there. Then run http://www.yourdomain.com/photopostlocation/upgrade.php

Remove install.php and upgrade.php after the upgrade has been completed

OK, im overwriting the files now. I was confused because I had to move the unzipped files to a different folder on my comp and upload to server (overwrite)them from there. The FTP kept uploading the ZIP file as a whole...lol

You basically can upload everything except the config files and run the upgrade. There are specific files like install.php header.htm footer.htm that you may not want to upload and as pointed out you dont need to upload uploads or data folders but it wont hurt if you do. The only big thing to do is never overwrite your config files.

I uploaded all files except for config-inc.php like the Upgrade text file stated
