Quick question about upgrading (2 posts)

    I'm following the upgrade tutorial and it says

    Delete these Files and Folders:

    * wp-* (except for those above), readme.html, wp.php, xmlrpc.php, and license.txt; files; Typically files in your root or wordpress folder. Again, don't delete the wp-config.php file.
    * wp-admin

    What is wp-*? Does that mean every file that starts with "wp" besides the ones that it says NOT to delete?

    Thanks.

    if you're upgrading from 2.6.2 to 2.6.3 you only need to delete/upload (personally I just overwrite) these files that changed.

    wp-admin/includes/media.php
    wp-content/plugins/akismet/akismet.php
    wp-includes/class-snoopy.php
    wp-includes/version.php

    As a general rule you delete all files except wp-config.php in wordpress root. The entire /wp-admin and /wp-includes (except maybe files you modified) folders leaving /wp-content folder intact.
    Upload all files and folders and run upgrade.php.
    Be sure and disable all plugins before upgrade
