    Great tutorial!
    I was wondering, I am having problems with my blog page (I have 2.7 but I think I have some corrupted files) could I use that process to do a reinstall, or do it automatically through tools? If I did would I lose all of my previous blogs and comments?
    Again, great tutorial!

    Hi there,
    really a great tutorial. I appreciate it a lot since I have to update, and was kinda scared since I have 2.3.3 *shiver*

    One question, sorry it’s offtopic. What kind of screenrecording-software do you use? I am searching for a software like this for months, but the stuff I found is really horrible.

    Thx, and again: great tutorial!
    Cheers
    Someone ;)

    My upgrade went fine. Every thing seemed to work to go from 2.7 to 2.7.1 I did not get a prompt when login after upgrade. The site loaded and appears fine. I have begin installing the plugins one by one again. All the menu pages in iNove at the top do not load any pages! Any suggestions on why this might have happened? I got everything saved and backed up from the old site that was working. WP also does not let me click the manual upgrade says i have not permissions or something so i have done this the manual way.

    I’ve had to revert back to my previous site.

    I just want to say a big thank you for the excellent videos.

    I finally upgraded my Worpress blog from 2.3.3 to 2.8.4 by following your tuts to the letter.

    I did the upgrade using WAMP on my local drive, now I am about to copy blog directory over to live site. Fingers crossed there are no issues.

    Keep up the good work.

    Thanks for the videos, made it all make sense. I don’t have/use Cpanel but it was easy to grasp the fundamentals. Successfully upgraded my test site.

    Now to do the farm site. You mentioned that there are a few changes if WP is installed in the root directory, but I couldn’t find a link to them. Anything significant? Seems only to watch not to delete files/directories associated with other apps that are installed.

    One question/suggestion on the upgrade. Wouldn’t it be better to get all the new WP files in place before you rename the live one. Then the site would be down for a slightly shorter time? Would have to shut the site down before doing the db B/U and transferring the upload dirs to make sure you didn’t lose content I guess. Also, for a directory, would be easy to first make a “site updating” page and point to that during the upgrade. Murphy’s law would say that Google would come by while the site is down.

    Thanks again.

    cheers,
    Andrew
