    Where should I upload it exactly and once uploaded I can I install or activate it?

    Where do I upload the security fixes file to? I can download it, extract file if need be, to my desktop. I can upload through Unlimited FTP to my allotment on BlueHost server...I just don't know where to put it. I have a public-html folder/file, and within that I have wp-content for the first domain established at BlueHost and also at that level I have the file folder for each subsequent domain I have hosted at Blue Host...

    Where do I up do the security fixes to? I tried plugins for one of my domains, id didn't work...

    Where should I upload it exactly and once uploaded I can I install or activate it?

    My name is Nia. My email is commonwealth_solutions at yahoo dot com. Thanks for help. All clues appreciated.

    It was released 16 days ago. It is to resolve security issues/vulnerability in WP 2.0.1 or something like that. What is the title: Security Pack? Fixes? Patch?

    Yes I have the download...and now that I have:
    http://codex.wordpress.org/Upgrading_WordPress

    I have the impression that it is not a matter of uploading that which was downloaded (like a theme or a plug in...this is different...way different)

    The instructions are very involved...and I didn't even glance at the "detailed instructions" yet. Wow!

    IS THERE a "pluggin" for this? ...by chance?

    Thanks MichelH! :)
