Well, yes... of course every test failed on uninstalling...  because none of the code changes were ever actually made

Also... it's not a new install... it's replacing the FILES with clean copies

Oh!  I missed that.  Okay, so if I ran the install and virtually all the tests failed due to the above, can I now try to install 2.0.9 again?  I think there's a good chance it will work this time due to the permissions change we made. 

Yeah, Plesk on my server has 2.0.9 actually.  So I could do a brand new install and then restore a database backup pretty easily.  However, I really think the above will work.  I installed the Ad Management software just fine, so I think this will do it.

no no no no no

might be easier to start over with fresh files and install your mods again.

this is **NOT** a "brand new install" and there is no reason to do that...

follow the ACTUAL instructions in that link

Oh okay.  I just read that page in detail.  Interesting solution.
