Just come across ExpressionEngine Answers, and am hoping you can set my mind at rest.
I'm just starting to upgrade an EE1.7.3 site to EE2.7.2 I've done the backup aand stages 1 to 6 of the Ellislabs procedure.
I've just run the admin.php [I have updated the system directory name] and it comes back with a 'click here to install a brand new copy of ExpressionEngine'
Is this the message I should expect, given I'm doing an update and not a brand new installation!
As you can imagine I really really don't want to go wrong at this stage!
BTW I've just spotted this question- sadly no solution there either :-(
