    When 2.0 becomes available tomorrow, I am wondering if it will also be available via Fantastico?

    Thanks :)

    Ask your host - but it's very doubtful.

    Also, if you are going to upgrade your blog using any auto-script, backup EVERYTHING. Your host will not help you if the upgrade screws things up, so backup now.

    How would one backup all the data of wordpress?

    Database:
    http://www.tamba2.org.uk/wordpress/backup/

    Also backup your blog files.
    It's VERY good practice to regularly backup everything on the server. This is such as occasion where doing that isn't just advised, it's essential.

    Your host really should be able to advise on this - it is a basic hosting requirement. Check their support docs / forum ? Or email their support too.

    nvm i found it, silly me.

    Anyways, my backup file is only 83Kb. Is that normal?

    For a zip or gzip and a new blog, yes.
    The default size of the database on install is 174Kb.

    You could always get an unzipped version, a zipped versiona and a gzipped one too. You can never ever have too many backups :)

    Thanks for the info macmanx.It took my host months to get 1.5.2 and that only happened after I pestered them about error messages I was getting via Fantastico while installing other programs.

    At any rate, I think I'll be able to install WordPress on my own.

    Will it be available Midnight sharp... I'm staying up hoping so, but I'm getting a lil sleepy now... lol.
