[resolved] Confusing instructions (5 posts)

    I used the ones that were presented first, that outlined back up of the data base and key files, then upload the new WP files, and finally browse to http://your.isp.com/wordpressfolder/wp-admin/upgrade.php

    So far so good, I go back and reactivate my plugins - all it fine, and it says V2.0.6

    THEN I find totally different instructions for updating which include deleteing directories, and says NOTHING about running upgrade.php

    So which is it?

    I reminded of a comedy skit where one guy tries to defuse a bomb and the other on reads the directions to do it...

    "Now cut the green wire"

    *snip*

    "But first...."

    *Yelling and running away...*

    What version did you upgrade from?

    Can you provide a link to the upgrade instructions you followed?

    It seems the fault is my own. I skimmed over the first paragraph (http://codex.wordpress.org/Upgrading_WordPress) which does have a link specifically for updating FROM 2.0.5 to 2.0.6

    So, now that I've made a total foole of myself, Have I done any harm by following the other instructions? Should I now re-upgrade or am I covered? (The site http://www.assaiki.com seems to work fine)

    No you're good. Also, running upgrade.php, though not necessary for 2.0.5 to 2.0.6, should do you no harm.

    Phew... Good - words like "Security update" always make me nervous, good to know I made the update.
