Do NOT Upgrade to WordPress 2.8 Automatically
This is to everyone who have not yet upgraded to wordpress 2.8. Just a word of caution, do not use the wordpress automatic upgrade feature when upgrading your blog to wordpress 2.8. There is a bug on it that will cause you to lose your core wordpress files…
When logging in to your wordpress admin panel and you don’t have wordpress 2.8, you will most likely see this at the top… (it’s a nag bar lol)
Clicking on the link will upgrade your wordpress installation automatically via the wordpress automatic upgrade feature. Do not click that. I got my info from this post, “WordPress 2.8.1 coming out soon“.
Based on the info, there is a risk that the auto-upgrade will delete the wordpress files IF there’s a file permission error on your server. This bug won’t affect everyone but it’s better to be safe than sorry so I suggest you do either of the following.
- Wait for WordPress 2.8.1 before you do the upgrade automatically.
- Upgrade your wordpress manually by uploading files.
That’s all for now.. ^^
