Upgrade to PowerCMS

Hello,
In the instructions for upgrading Site Scultor's CMS to PowerCMS it says;

2. Open the rename_ and_upload_file_folder directory.
3. Open the admin folder.

I don't have an admin folder I have an admin_cms.
Is this the folder I need?

thanks for the quick reply.

Do I keep the folder as admin on the site then, or rename that to match the PowerCMS name

Hey mousework,

The process of upgrading has become a little less intuitive with the latest dot release of PowerCMS. We'll get the documentation updated as soon as possible to reflect the changes.

For the upgrade, you will upload the new admin_cms folder and files, run the installer to activate PowerCMS, then switch over to the new admin_cms folder for your administration. You can delete the old admin folder or leave it for posterity.

Hi,
Do I ignore all the copy certain files from the PowerCMS folder then.
Should I go back to a fresh copy prior to moving and uploading certsin files around, or do your instructions on whats there now.

Hey mousework,

The documentation has now been updated, and should be available to you shortly.

You can use the files you have now. When it asks to overwrite existing files say yes, and once all the files are up, go to the install folder in a browser.
