    Upgraded today 2.0.1 -> 2.0.2. Followed the 7-point list in the Codex. Dead easy, took less than 5 minutes. And it works :)

    For anyone that is curious, I went through and re-did the upgrade. This time it took. I don't know why it didn't take the fisrt time. I did everything this second time the same way I did it the first time. Go figure!

    What about the folder called wp-content, should you delete that when upgrading?

    The Upgrading WordPress article on the codex should help you figure it all out!

    EDITED* niziol got's it lol.. =) Was just merely trying to do a quicky description of it lol..

    What about the folder called wp-content, should you delete that when upgrading?

    Nope! As far as I know, everything except the wp-config.php file and the wp-content folder..and any special plugins files that might be in the blog's root directory or in the wp-admin folder...

    I have some plugins that need certain files in the root and wp-admin folder.....I only remove those files within the wp-admin folder...that aren't the plugin files..same goes for the root of the blog..

    spencerp, I hate writting out those long, really good replies and then being beaten to the punch!

    I had made a few little tweaks to the core files and of-course, I can't remember which ones, so I decided to be brave and use the patch command and the diff/patch files mentioned earlier on in the thread and it seems to have worked quite well! The last time I had seen a command line was like 4 years ago reading e-mail with pine on the University system, but I downloaded this Cygwin programme, it does a little Unix like command thing in Windows and it has a big handful of programmes ported for it, including patch and what not, so I just did the patch right here on my Win2K machine and it went super well! That's always an option for anyone wanting to patch who doesn't have ssh access or is afraid of the command line like me!

    Cheers,
    Michael.

    Hahaha, yeah I know what you're saying about that lol! =) No matter how fast I try and type a quicky nice short reply, someone always beat ya to the punch lmao..but it's all good.

    Oh you are so awesome man! Thank you so much for sharing that.. I had also seen about the "DIFF" way of doing it, downloaded it and all...but was like: Ok, now what to do with it..sigh.

    I had seen that one TUT on how to, but still was lost. I'm also like you, not so sure about myself and is kind of afraid of doing command lines and stuff.. =(

    I'm going to download that Cygwin programme once, and see what I can do, well on one of my test blogs hehe.. thanks a million Michael. =^)

    Also had good fortune on my upgrade - just had to remember to replace the various WPG2 files (like the tinymce plugin).

    after the upgrade to 2.0.2, I cannot edit or create pages. posts work fine.
    I always get the following error message in the middle of the screen in "/wp-admin/post.php?action=edit&post=nnn":

    WordPress database error: [Unknown column 'user_firstname' in 'field list']
    SELECT ID, user_login, user_firstname, user_lastname FROM wp_users WHERE user_level <= 10 AND user_level > 0

    has that happened to anyone else?
    How can I fix it?

    gracias

    This upgrade could have been done a lot easier...

    Am I saying it is not possible to do? Absolutely not. But you have to have an over the average interest in computers to do it this way. And I think thousands of WordPress sites will never be upgraded. Here are two suggestions that could make life a lot easier:

    1. Make an upgrade plug-in that show new patches on the dashboard and will upgrade WP for you when you click "Install this upgrade". It is definitely possible.

    2. Until 1 happens, make patches in the form of .zip files with only the changed files in the exact same folder structure. Make sure the patch is made so when you unzip it, it do NOT create any WordPress folder. Then it will work for everyone that uses WordPress as the only system installed in root. You only need to upload this file to the root of the web folder and unzip it, overwriting the old files.

    The last method is used by Joomla and works like a charm. You can update 10 websites in the same amount of minutes.

    I am really not looking forward to the "delete this and that, upload this and that" routine for every security upgrade.

    Why not make upgrading as easy as the posting?

    nubricks - if everything WAS okay and you have done nothing, ask your host if they have moved anything.
    Also check what else is there using your ftp and also get a database backup.

    I'm not sure if you missed it or not, but isn't this "basically like" what you're talking about Oceanwatcher? And there's a link to detailed instructions on how to do it.. =)

    But yeah, I do know where you're coming from lol! =) I wouldn't mind just a "zip" of all the changed files too, then I could just unzip it and upload ONLY the fixed files then.. but who knows what the future will bring though..

    Can you still see them in the admin Links manager? Did they get somehow turned "invisible"?

    They are all still in my links manager, all are "visible". I have toggled a few to invisible and back with no effect.

    They are still visible in my backup of 2.0.1 http://brianviki.com/blog.old/

    Spencerp: I am sorry to reply so late, I have real problems finding things here until I found the only real search... There search field on the top should not actually be called search. Tag sift is more correct.

    On to your answer - Yes and no. You are right in the sense that it is similar to what I want. But it is also really far from anything usable for anyone with a normal hosting account.

    The person in this example has used a diff file and apply it with a patch command. You can only do this with shell access to the server. Not many people has that. And cPanel do not have it as far as I know :-) The only thing that would work is a zip file with only the files that has changed. And here is the most important thing: The zip file must NOT have a folder inside as the first "level" of the zip. Then you will not be able to unzip it in the root of your WP installation.

    I really have my hopes up for something like this in the future.

    Oh yeah, I understand that not too many have that option per se lol.. I was just merely pointing out, as a "quicky" way of doing it, that's the only real option/way of doing it at this time..hehe.

    As for the "hopeful" zip deal, I'm not sure about that one.. but, for my "idea" of how it could be done later..is..have all the fixed files, left in the normal folders and such.

    So you would have something like:
    wp-admin/ <---all fixed files, even within all folders.
    wp-includes/ <---all fixed files, even within all folders.
    index.php <---all fixed files if have..

    As like in the "normal" downloadable zip format, but instead of having ALL of them, the non-fixed ones too.... just ONLY have the fixed ones.

    People wouldn't have to delete everything, they would only have to delete like maybe 6 from the wp-admin folder...and upload 6. And so on..and so forth.

    I know that's NOT what you're really saying, but even if the way I had mentioned was a "possibility" it would be awesome lol. =) Well, a step in a good direction that is lol..

    I successfully applied the patch without using my shell access as I mentioned here. It was surprisingly easy and straight forward once I figured it out!

    I keep getting the 500 Internal Server Error when I go to http://localhost/wordpress/. "The server encountered an internal error or misconfiguration and was unable to complete your request."
    I'm pretty sure my apache and mysql are running, though I can't seem to see the mysql in my active programs list :-S

    help?

    If you have a .htaccess file, rename it.
    That should help.
