Just in case somebody doesn't take the time to read the complete instructions:


Step 7: Delete the old WordPress files

Except your wp-content folder (which holds your themes, plugins, and other custom content), wp-config.php, wp-images folder, wp-includes/languages folder if you are using other languages, and your .htaccess if you have custom rules.
