    getting no love in the other thread;
    http://wordpress.org/support/2/5817
    so i thought i'd start a new one and ask, when you upgrade from b2 to wordpress, do you point wp-config.php to your old b2 database? the readme says to do a normal install first, but you can't do that if you already have a db installed. it says do a normal install, following the directions in the readme, and then run import-b2.php, but that doesn't work. i'm thinking maybe i should just upload all the wordpress files, point wp-config at my b2 db, and run import-b2, skipping the install script altogether. but i'd like to get someone to confirm it before i do. am i missing something? tia.

    Update to 1.0.2 first, then to 1.2. You can use the "update.php" scripts in this manner.
    As always be sure to backup your database first.
    Yes, in your wp-config.php file you can point to your b2 database files. You need to run wp-admin/update.php for it to work.

    Hi,
    Padre could you tell me if it worked, because I am in the same case as you.
    If you managed to update it successfully could you please advise the way you did it ?
    Thanks !
