Silkenhut’s World is finally running WordPress 2.3 after a week or so from WordPress 2.3’s release. What delayed my upgrade was my problem with my webhost account where I can’t log in to my FTP. But now it’s fixed and I upgraded as soon as I got home from work today.
Basically, I just followed my own guide for upgrading wordpress 2.3 and it all went well without any problem. \
Also, I found these two plugins that claim to upgrade your wordpress automatically (that means no more manual replacement of files, and other stuffs). I will post them for references only. Try them at your own risk.
If you have any problems regarding your wordpress upgrade process, please do not hesitate to ask me. ^_^
I will schedule a blog maintenance tonight, October 5 so if ever you get to read this or it’s down when you checked it out, you will know why.
I will be upgrading my wordpress to version 2.3. It’s going to be a tough process but I hope I can finish this ASAP. Thank you.
When doing your upgrade to wordpress 2.3 , I suggest you test it out by first using a local copy on your computer.
NEVER DO AN UPGRADE ON YOUR SITE WITHOUT TESTING IT OUT LOCALLY FIRST. When you do it locally, you can still recover your local blog when something wrong happens.
