Okay, I was getting ready to follow the instructions on the Upgrading page in the Codex when I noticed that it appears to have conflicting instructions on what to do with the .htaccess.
In the overview part of the page it says:
On your host server site, delete your old WordPress files, but DO NOT DELETE:
- .htaccess (if it exists)
- The wp-content folder
- Your language file in wp-includes/languages/
While in the detailed Instructions section is says:
DELETE all other WordPress files and folders, including .htaccess.
So which is it, save or delete the .htaccess?
