    Alright, I'm on version 2.3 of wordpress, and am going to try upgrading to 2.8. How many upgrades do I have to do, I assume that I can't jump straight to 2.8 from this low, can I? Or do I upgrade with each major release? Like 2.4, then 2.5, then 2.6. then 2.7, finally 2.8?

    Thanks!

    I got this linked to me, http://codex.wordpress.org/Upgrading_WordPress_Extended#Detailed_Upgrade_Instructions_for_1.5.x.2C_and_versions_2.0_-_2.6.5.2C_to_2.8.5, and plan on following it, but just wanted some clarity on how many upgrades I have in store.

    Make sure you have a good backup, before attempting any upgrade. Following those directions should work for going straight from 2.3 to 2.8.x.

    Alright, awesome. Yeah, I plan on doing backups of everything. Really don't want to "brick" the site. xD So I hope that "how to" has all the things I should backup covered.

    Just in case make a backup of the entire directory structure just to be safe.
