XF 1.3 Trying to Upgrade

Upgrade from 1.2.3

I've uploaded all the new files but when I try to do the upgrade it's trying to do a new install and asking for my server details etc. I seem to remember having the same problem last time I upgraded.

Any suggestions?
I followed the instructions and uploaded all the files. Baffled.

Why can't XenForo be upgraded like WordPress via the admin area?

I have responded to your ticket.

You wouldn't happen to use Transmit, would you?
Typically, incorrect settings in an FTP application are the cause of this.

In which case you need to set it to merge, rather than overwrite.

As I said in the ticket, you will need to ensure config.php is restored as it will have been removed.
