Upgrade to WordPress 2.8.1

I just upgraded Isotropic to WordPress 2.8.1 from 2.7.1. I backed up the database, rsync’d my site to my local disk, and clicked the Upgrade button. All of that took less that five minutes. Very slick.

Upgrade to WordPress 2.6.3

I’ve just upgraded to WordPress 2.6.3. It was relatively simple — just scp the files class-snoopy.php and version.php into the wp-includes directory. The upgrade to 2.7 is due November 10th, but I’ll postpone upgrading until we hear back from the trenches. Previous upgrade: 2.6.2.

Upgrade to WordPress 2.5

Well, here goes…. … that was easy. Untar’d on my local machine to check things out, disabled all my plugins, renamed the includes and admin directories on the live site, and rsync’d things over. Spent a while checking settings, reenabling plugins, etc. Next upgrade: 2.6.2.
