Last night I upgraded my wordpress installation to 2.7 version. It did not went without a troubles. After I uploaded all the files to my web space with my FTP client, there was a nasty error 1226 in wp-admin page. I went to sleep, quite disappointed, and worried about what am I gonna do if I’ll have to re-install and restore the whole blog (oh my god…). But then I re-uploaded the whole thing once again and all went ok. This new version has pretty, new graphical user interface in admin area.
For those who want to easily ugrade their worpress installation to the new version there are 3 easy steps to follow:
2. Unzip it, Upload and Replace your WordPress files, except: wp-config.php file and wp-content folder.
3. Point your browser to “http://yourdomain/wp-admin/upgrade.php“. Follow the instructions on screen to continue and upgrade within seconds.
I would say there is a fourth one: Backup you WP database before – because after could be too late…. -:)
There is a video of presentation all the new features, in case you want to check this out.
