XF 1.3 upgrade issues

#1
Running XenForo 1.3.0 Beta 3

Trying to upgrade to the latest version of 1.3

Uploaded all the upgrade files and chmod 0777 to the data and internal_data, all sub dir and files below that

When I go to the site I see an "upgrade in progress" and when I got to the install directory I get an 500 Internal Server Error (copied below)

Now the interesting thing, when I do a restore on the files only in forum it starts working again.

Any ideas?

Its something to do with the files because when i restore the files only thus undoing the upload it starts working again.

General files and directories should be 0644 and 0755 respectively.

The /data and /internal_data directories should be 0777.
