    I'm very new to this and need to upgrade from Version 2.1. I'm looking for the most detailed way to do so (since I am new to this details are very helpful) and am looking for the best possible help to become current. Thanks so much!

    There is a codex page for updating WordPress: http://codex.wordpress.org/Updating_WordPress

    However, that assumes you have Version 2.7+ so you may need to read through the extended one: http://codex.wordpress.org/Upgrading_WordPress_Extended

    If it is important and you are unsure, then you should consider hiring someone to do it for you.

    You will have to update in steps and those above will help you and most important is that you need to backup database and check everything is working before you update to next step

    Hi Kakern,

    It should not be a problem. You should upgrade WordPress manually from 1 version to the other, instead of simply upgrading your installation to the latest version. From (wordpress.org/download/release-archive/) you can download different versions of WordPress. Upgrade from 2.1 to 2.2 etc until you get to the latest version. To manually upgrade WordPress, it is very straight forward as documented in http://codex.wordpress.org/Updating_WordPress.
