    You people are starting to freak me out about this upgrade. I'm paranoid enough!

    :P

    The other thread contains:

    A REVISED xmlrpc.php FILE

    which you can use.

    With only 5 changed files, would it make sense to make a patch available for download? Just food for future thought, especially on these security updates.

    The entire WordPress download is small enough that patches don't provide much real benefit. And making patches available makes it one more support question for new users: "Which update do I download?!"

    Alright, it works for post/edit, but there's another problem that was already reported here:
    http://trac.wordpress.org/ticket/1355.

    Actually, if the update is labeled as an "upgrade" and the full install is labeled as just that, it would definitely be much easier. It not necessary about the matter of size of the download, it's about convenience. And downloading the whole install package just to install 5 files (with no DB update) seems just a wee bit bothersome.

    They're very anti-patches for some reason. I've made do with deleting xmlrpc.php, that should hold me until 1.5.1.4. If they think I'm doing a full upgrade on four installations for every single 0.0.0.1 release they're on crack.

    Well, copying the changed files on 5 installs took me less than 10 minutes total - and I'm on dialup.... it's just really not a big deal....

    What does the darn xmlrpc file do anyway?

    I made a patch available for upgrading from 1.5.1.2 to 1.5.1.3. It contains only the five affected files and the latest xmlrpc.php patch.

    @vkaryl Allows you to blog offline using software like ecto, newzcrawler etc.

    I just wanted to say that I upgraded all three of my blogs this afternoon in less than 45 minutes. It probably would have been less but I was having problems with my ftp connection and had to restart the upload a number of times.

    Everything seems to be o.k. so far but then, I followed the directions.

    Just my 2cents.

    I've just upgraded to 1.5.1.3 and Comments and permalinks to posts are broken. I can't see what I've done wrong, or what file I might have left out. Can anyone help?

    tonusp - what version did you upgrade from ?

    It was about February I last upgraded, so I think it was just 1.5

    OK, I think it may be working now. I don't think it says anywhere in the accessible documentation (i.e. 5 second upgrade instructions) that you have to log in as admin, go to Options > Permalinks > and Upgrade structure of permalinks.

    Or have I missed the obvious place where it says this?

    I have just tried to upgrade, I followed all the directions, went to:
    /wp-admin/upgrade.php ... got my "SUCCESS" message, but now I'm getting an error saying my wp-config file is wrong, / or WP cannot access my DB.

    I am really frustrated, and don't know what I've done wrong? My photoblog runs off the same DB (always has) and I've had no problems, ... My P-Blog is working fine.

    What shall I do??

    When you deleted the old files did you keep your wp-config file? Do you have now a correct wp-config file in your blog's root directory?

    Hi moshu, ... yes, I kept my wp-config file, and yes it's in my blog's root directory. ....

    <s>I am really tempted to delete the whole thing, go to my C panel, do a new install of the older version, and upgrade again immediately. I backed-up the whole server last night. Maybe I should create a new data base. (???)</s>
    I did it. Uninstalled whatever was in my Blog folder, but in doing so, I have also lost my photoblog. I could tear my hair out!

    Have you downloaded and checked inside the wp-config file ?

    yes podz, I had done that ...
    My C-panel does an auto install of an older version and I was just about to do that. I have everything backed up on my hard drive, ... how should I continue? ... (All this so I could use a "theme")

    The good thing is if I get it running is that I wanted to use WP for both, ... which I guess would require multiple installations? ... I a sucker for punishment!! :)

    This is odd because every time your blog is viewed/used, the information in the config file is used. So if the upgrade went well, but then it just went wrong, that suggests something else has gone wrong.

    I opened the config-sample file in notepad, and I put in the correct info for the DB, ... now do I upload it as "sample" and rename it on the server side?

    ... so, .... I went to /wp-admin/upgrade.php got my "SUCCESS" message, clicked on have fun, and there is a blank white screen where my blog should be .... (I think I'm going to cry)

    It doesn't actually matter - so long as it's called wp-config.php in the end :)
