Painless upgrade

Published by at 9:50 am under Blogging,Site Configuration

Well, thanks to the WordPress Automatic Upgrade plugin I was able to upgrade my WordPress blog in less than 5 minutes and create a backup of the entire database in the process. So far everything came up fine, the exception being that I had to re-enable most of my plugins. Since this has always been a problem for me with WAU, it was the first thing I checked after the upgrace. I’m now running on WordPress 2.6.

There don’t seem to be a lot of (read any) security updates related to this upgrade, though there are a lot of usability updates. I’ll have to check out ‘gears’ when I have some extra time to spare.

    I wish I could say the same!
    I upgraded mine today, http://InfoSecBlog.AntonAylward.com at Dreamhost and found all the category names had gone blank.
    The categories are still there and they are still associated with postings, but the names are all blank.
