Trying to upgrade Turnkey Fileserver 12.1 to use AjaXplorer 5.0x

I'm trying to upgrade the version of AjaXplorer to 5.0x.  Tried the "Manual Install" instructions on this page:  http://ajaxplorer.info/download/

Steps done:

1) wget http://downloads.sourceforge.net/project/ajaxplorer/ajaxplorer/stable-ch...

2) renamed the crazy filename to ajaxplorer-core-5.0.2.tar.gz

3) tar xvf ajaxplorer-core-5.0.2.tar.gz

4) cd /var/www/ajaxplorer

5) rm * -rf

6) cd ~

7) cd ajaxplorer-core-5.0.2

8) cp * -R /var/www/ajaxplorer

9) chown -R www-data /var/www/ajaxplorer/data

And it comes up when I goto "https://<ip>/", but gives warnings about configurations and doesn't tap into Samba users automatically like before with v4.23.  Yeah, I know, I probably caused all this with step 5.  But what files do I need to save?

The instructions on the AjaXplorer site really don't tell me enough.

Thanks if anyone can help!

But perhaps they have 'upgrade' or 'update' instructions. Often with software such as this you can just overwrite your old directory with the new version and only the neccessary files are overwritten and it will continue to use your old config...

Failing that, perhaps AjaXplorer have forums or a mailing list? Another thought is that you could just dig around in the old version (you did a backup of that dir first didn't you...?! If not start with a new TKL server and use that to compare against...) and see if you can work out what files are for config...
