Is there an option I'm missing to retain posts and users?

It should automatically direct you to the upgrade. Did you remove the internal_data/install-lock.php file? Or did you perhaps overwrite the entire internal_data directory when uploading the new files? If the install-lock.php file is gone then that would explain the failure to direct you to the upgrade script.

You can manually go to the upgrade by loading install/index.php?upgrade/. The upgrade preserves posts and users.

It worked fine for me just an hour ago. I didn't have to do anything special Jethro.
Just went to nameofsite.com/install and it went right to the upgrade process.

Thanks Jake. Copied the file from another install and the upgrade worked like a charm.
