I have never figured out an efficient way of upgrading WordPress. It's gotten to the point where I avoid upgrading at all possible costs.
However, I recently was told by my host, Lunar Pages, that I needed to upgrade because my blog was using too much resources.
The problem is, when I use Fantastico, I get the following message:
"Only manual upgrade possible".
Why the hell does it say this?
The manual upgrade just seems like such a tedious task because from what I see, I have to upload each individual file because Lunar Pages control panel does not allow one to upload folders, only files.
There must be an easier way than for me to spend the entire night uploading files.
As it is right now, I deleted a bunch of files as directed only to be left without access to my stats.
