Installer does not show an Upgrade button

I only see the Clean Install button

If you have begun the upgrade process by going to YOURSITE.com/zc_install, but you don’t see an Upgrade … button, it means the system can’t recognize your existing database. Look at your includes/configure.php file and check these things:

  • Is the DB_DATABASE the correct name for the database you are importing?
  • Does DB_PREFIX correctly reflect the prefix used on the tables in the database?

When everything is configured correctly, you should see this at the bottom of the screen on the first page of zc_install:

Use the upgrade button!
