Hello,
I just pulled down the web upgrade to 3.0.0 and placed the upgrade.php into my forums directory. I am trying to upgrade from 2.7.7 to 3.0.0.

I'm getting the following error when I hit the upgrade.php url

"INVALID DATABASE TYPE OF mysql SPECIFIED!"

My current install of 2.7.7 is working fine pointing to a mysql db.

looks like I had a broken path set in the GLOBALS.php. It was my fault....upgrade worked after I fixed the DATA_DIR entry.
