    Hi,

    This site I've just been give the reigns of has an ancient version of Word Press. They severly stated they didn't want any thing to happen to any of the content. I've backed up the HTML folder.

    Is this okay to up date now? How do I update? It's so old that there's no easy way to do it. Do I have to delete the files?

    Thanks,

    Richard

    that's an older plugin that may help you out.....

    if that doesn't work, just follow the instructions here http://codex.wordpress.org/Upgrading_WordPress

    Make sure you have a backup of your database as well of your files before you start
