When upgrading to 3.0.1 I got the error message,"You are not allowed to call this page directly." Apparently, because I changed my wordpress address to http://www.tshirtsatfirstsite.com from http://www.wordpress.com/tshirtsatfirstsite I would need to upgrade manually.
I don't want to have to do that every time there is an upgrade. Being a non expert, it becomes too time-consuming. Procrastinating the 3.0.1 manual upgrade, I tried the auto upgrade again after a few weeks and it worked! Like a charm.
Can anyone tell me why the auto upgrade worked after a few weeks even though I hadn't made any changes to the blog? Will the auto upgrade work again if I wait a couple of weeks this time? Would it be possible for WordPress coders to make the auto upgrade work for those who change their address by removing the word 'wordpress' in the future?
