    I just pulled out a very old blog that has not been updated in some time. I was wanting to update it to wp 3.0 just for kicks.. but I don't see any update option. Will I be stuck doing it manually? Or is there some automated option I'm not seeing? Thanks.

    Automatic update is supported on WordPress version 2.7+, so if you have a version older than 2.7, your option is manual update.

    You also need to update in several small steps as there are some changes to the Database at some versions. I have seen threads a while back about problems making too big a jump at one time. Sorry I don't remember where the list of steps are posted.

    Make sure you backup both your standard content files and the Database (separate items) in case you have problems.

    With a bit of luck one of the moderators will stop by here with the versions numbers for the upgrades.

  4. The "semi-official" WordPress major upgrade path:

    1. Backup the files and the database.

    2. Download WordPress 2.5.

    3. Do a manual upgrade to WordPress 2.5.

    4. Repeat step 1, but don't replace the previous backup (keep both on hand).

    5. Download WordPress 2.7.

    6. Do a manual upgrade to WordPress 2.7.

    7. Repeat step 1, but don't replace the previous backup (keep both on hand).

    8. Use WP's automated upgrade to system to upgrade to 3.0.1.
