Upgrading from .72 to 1.2 (8 posts)

    So I'm finally upgrading from wordpress .72 to 1.2. I know, i know, most of you think I should have done this LONG ago but to be honest .72 has been working flawlessly for me for over almost a year and there's just now some features in 1.2 I want and thus, need to upgrade for.
    My question is this: the instructions seem vague so do I just upload all of the files and overright the existing files? Or should I just delete the current WP directory (I've already downloaded a backup copy of the directory) and upload the new files in their place?

    Delete first - saves any possble overwrite errors.
    Have you backed up the database too ?

    Nein. what's the best way to backup my SQL database? I'm trying to find a program to help me do that.

    I started to install it but there's no menu.txt file that came with my WP .72

    Never mind, I just found the phpMyAdmin on my server :: hangs head in shame ::
    it's all backed up and ready for the real damage to start. Thanks!

    Go me!
    I got it upgraded to 1.2 just fine and now all I have is some little fine tuning. However, after working two jobs today, I'm tired and I'll finish tomorrow.
