    Fatal error: Cannot redeclare wp_delete_link() (previously declared in /home/fhlinux176/m/marksweb.co.uk/user/htdocs/blog/wp-admin/admin-db.php:407) in /home/fhlinux176/m/marksweb.co.uk/user/htdocs/blog/wp-admin/includes/bookmark.php on line 41

    Any Ideas?
    Google doesn't pick anything up :(
    I've just uploaded 2.3 files and ran the upgrade file.

    you didnt delete the files from your old install before uploading the new files.

    2.3 doesnt have an wp-admin/admin-db.php

    oh right, i don't normally delete files - previous upgrades have all been fine by just overwriting :s

    anyway, thanks, i'll del the dir and try again.

    matt created a new Upgrading WordPress that does not advocate deleting files, just overwriting them.

    For now, it might be better to use the instructions from Upgrading_WordPress_Extended--in particular Steps 7 and 8.

    meh, and thats been shown over and over again not to work. bad advice if you ask me. That makes a lot of assumptions about how familiar one is with how to use their particular FTP client.

    'Cant wait to see the threads that show up here because of that.

    Who's Matt?
