I just upgrade from v7 to b8 (8180) and I could never get the inplace upgrade working. So I decided to upgrade manually.
It all appears fine, I have everything, but when I log on to it, it is asking for a "New Database" or a "Blank Database"
I could not find the "Existing Database".
I have selected "Blank Database"
It is just "spinning" on Please Wait.
The logs are stuck here:
Resolving host name of database server...
Executing creation of temporary table...
Finished creation of temporary table...
