I'm new to WordPress and working on getting my first blog set up.
I'm using Yahoo Small Business web hosting which offers WordPress as an add on. A feature that comes along with this is auto updating of WP.
So I go to activate WP and all goes well. I go to my 'blog manager' within Yahoo CP and notice that the WP version I have is 2.0.2. As I understand it, the latest version, 2.0.4, was released 2-3 weeks ago? Since I just activated WP today, I was under the impression that I would have the latest version installed. So how does this auto update work? Is there a certain time schedule it works on or is there something that I have to do?
I must admit, part of the appeal since I'm very new working with web hosting is auto updating. Nontheless, I tried upgrading myself by downloading the zip and following the upgrade instructions, but didn't have any luck at all. In fact, during this process, I had to deactivate and then reactivate WordPress twice.
Anyway, I'd appreciate any info/help any of you could provide.
Oh, one other thing, after activating, I didn't receive any sort of confirmation email from WP. Is this as it should be or should I have received an email?
Thanks in advance for any help!
