Will there be an easy way to upgrade the system, i (3 posts)

    As I'm a HTML newbie, and I've got my WordPress up and running, I'd like to upgrade from 1.2beta to 1.2.
    Will there ever be an easy way to upgrade the wonderful system, other than hoping one does not "overwrite anything important", even though said important files are not specified?
    I understand that some people rearrange the standard WordPress installation beyond comprehension, yet for us newbies, this means we have problems upgrading.
    Is there any help in sight?
    Sincerely,
    Niklas

    I know it may seem intimidating, but all your data is sitting in the database, and that's pretty safe.
    The only changes that you need to think about are those that you have done, and if you've done it once, it's easier doing it the second time, esp now we have more plugins.
    But if you do have any questions, fire away.
    This link may help too.

    But on upgrading you can easily keep your index.php and wp-layout.css by copying them before you start. They are probably your two most important files.
