Hoping for some help upgrading ArchivesSpace from 1.4.7 to 1.5.1 running Windows Server 2008 R2 and MySQL. I've tried following the main and supplemental 1.4.x to 1.5.x instructions several times and I keep finishing and getting HTTP ERROR 503 service unavailable. Here are the steps I'm doing:

1)      Backup.

2)      Delete data/solr_index/index directory. Delete all files in data/indexer_state directory.

3)      Unzip AS download.

4)      Shutdown AS service

5)      Rename old AS directory from ArchivesSpace to ArchivesSpace.old

6)      Name new AS directory ArhichivesSpace

7)      Copy data directory from ArchivesSpace.old to ArchivesSpace, replace all files when prompted.

8)      Make three edits in new config.rb file for db_url and jetty as described in clean install instructions.

9)      Copy mysql-connector*.jar to new \lib directory.

10)   Copy prunmgr and prunsrv to new ArchivesSpace directory.

11)   (I don't have any plugins or mods.)

12)   Running a command prompt as an admin, run setup-database.bat in the new \scripts folder, then service.bat in the new \launcher folder.

13)   Start service.

So? Thoughts on what I might be doing wrong?
