It should have stayed the same. What is your OS and what kind of installer
did you choose to install ?

Maybe you've chosen the zip or tar.gz archive. These "installers" do not
share the same directory structure and don't allow to run multiple instance
but only one.

I suggest that you use Apache Directory Studio and extract all your data in
your partitions as LDIF. Then you can import them easily in 1.5.3.

Finally, I have a custom schema LDIF that I had in instance/default/ldif.

As I said, the directory structure as not changed so you should be able to
drop your custom schema in your instance ldif directory, unless you've used
the zip or tar.gz archives.
If yes, I suggest that you download the same installer you installed 1.5.1
