Switching servers, upgrading from 1.2 to 2.0.2 (2 posts)

    Hi folks,

    I'm thinking of switching ISPs (currently use WebIntellects and want to move to Site5), but at the same time I thought I might upgrade my version of wordpress from 1.2 to 2.0.2.

    Any steps you recommend in doing this? To not lose my old content, is it best that I copy over my current installation then go through the suggested upgrade steps in the Codex? (http://codex.wordpress.org/Upgrading_WordPress)

    Thanks!

    Probably that's the best way (or maybe even the only way!).
    Backup.
    Move over the old stuff: WP files and DB.
    When it works at the new location, do the upgrade in steps: 1.2 > 1.5.2 > 2.latest.
    When doing the 1.2 to 1.5 you may want turn your existing "style" into a theme. If not, then just use one of the hundreds of available themes.
