    I was upgrading from 1..1.2 to 1.1.3 but after I had filled in all my server details this error message appeared:
    "You have already completed installation. If you wish to reinstall, please delete the file internal_data/install-lock.php."

    When I was uploading the new files I took replace old files and not merge. Could this be the problem? What happens if I delete install_lock.php? Please
    help me with this.

    Yes you need to merge, not replace.

    You should restore a backup from before you uploaded the files. You can simply recreate the internal_data/install-lock.php file, but you will still have lost the other contents of data and internal_data which is all of your attachments and avatars.

    Thanks for you reply Jake!

    I didn't create a back up before uploading the other files. I just transferred most of the old files on the ftp to a folder.

    I know.. I should have created a back up =/. So what are my options right now? Could you please instruct me step by step on how to do. Really appreciate your help.

    Ok.. well this was strange. I was going to mysite/install today and I had to fill in my e-mail and password and then it started the update so now I run on 1.1.3. Strange but good for me =)
