Just a quick note that I have updated my main blog to WordPress 2.01. A painless procedure IMHO and kudos to the WP team for the rapid availability of this update 😀
As always, I followed their upgrade instructions very closely (especially about backing up!).
Well, I finally got around to it today, and ‘upgraded’ my main blog to WordPress 2.0 as I had planned.
It is the first time I had tried anything like this so I did it with some trepidation! initially I tried it on a development/trial site, then went for the live version.
The steps I took are listed below.
Quick version : downloaded and unzipped WordPress 2.0, changed the wp-config.php to point correctly and up-loaded all the files. Ran the upgrade script.
I have my main blog The Silent Deep on my own server installation as well.
It is running under WordPress1.5.2 , but maybe we will have a functional update released along the lines of this site in the not too distant future? Anyway, come on over 🙂
Well – its a fantastic start! Just imported all my Blogger posts AND comments onto the new WordPress.com site! 🙂 Gotta be happy about that!
A Big THANK-YOU to all the WordPress team for this!
