After a brief ‘meet n greet’ (beer and food) with EMC and VMware folks at Malarkey’s; I went to bed uncharacteristically early and am now enduring a mild case of insomnia. I’ve been awake since 3 a.m. and have been mindlessly surfing channels, chatting with vanbergs about when we’ll be seeing “The Dark Knight”, laughing at the top 10 worst exam answers, and generally surfing the internet.
I found that WordPress and Gallery each had new versions out; so I decided to take the plunge. I upgraded to WordPress 2.6 and Gallery 2.2.5.
I used only the-bob.org’s command line, and the process as a whole took 10 minutes and resulted in no issues whatsoever.
GREAT WORK VANBERGE NUMBER FOUR
I am sorry I won’t be able to view Batman with you guys oh well. I am also glad your updates were successful. Sadly I can’t bother you about the auto show pictures anymore so really your homepage is pretty much where it should be.
is your wordpress install “svn-enabled”? because that is the way to upgrade for sure.
Mr. Chouse – i looked into that once but never really took it to completion.
For these last few upgrades I’ve stuck with wget to download the latest; ultimately relying on gunzip | tar -xvf
I am a command line nerd. 🙁
You must check it out. It is awesome. Still command line! http://codex.wordpress.org/Installing/Updating_WordPress_with_Subversion
$ cd blog
$ svn sw http://svn.automattic.com/wordpress/tags/2.6/
Step through wp-admin/upgrade.php and voila.
You need to do a few painless things before using svn for the first time though but no big deal.
You’re right… it is awesome.
I completely deleted wordpress, checked out the subverson latest, re-copied my plugins/themes and I was done in 8 minutes.
future upgrades should be pretty damn easy.
Do you stick to ‘stable’ releases or do you run ‘bleeding edge’ ?
not that you asked me but i bleeding edge to fix problems if they come up and stable when everything is fine.
