• Read release of security updates, 2.1.3 and 2.0.10. But download link only accesses 2.1.3 download. Where do I go to access the 2.0.10 update?

    Thank you.

    Any known issues upgrading from 2.0.6 to 2.0.10?

    Please advise. It’d be nice to have a little professional “it’s ok, not a problem”, or “be aware of the following.. xxxx xxxx”, etc. before I take the plunge.

    I didn’t see this upgrade path covered anywhere else.

    Muchos Gracias!

    Nothing unusual in the upgrade. No need to overwrite the theme folder, but the plugin folder does have an Akismet update.

    So existing database structure should be fine, etc?

    Should I restart mySQL server after the upgrade?

    Will plugins that work for 2.0.6 continue working with 2.0.10? I had some issues with the quoter plugin from 2.0.3(or 4) to 2.05 (or 6)… due to some core code changes…

    Just run the upgrade script at /wp-admin/upgrade.php when all files are uploaded
    Plugins should be fine – though you should de-activate them prior to install.
    Databse will be fine – no need to restart mysql.

    And, as always, backup everything first. Just in case.

    Thanks! I’ll give it a shot this weekend.

    I’m a big fan of those helpful posts by those wiser than I where they offer some guidance (if you’re from version X, then just update these files); here’s what’s changed, here’s what you need to do. Seems like there’s a few more hoops this time around.

    Not really. The upgrade process never really varies.

    1. Backup all the files in your WordPress installation.
    2. Backup the database.
    3. Delete these from your server:
    everything in the root except your personal files and wp-config.php
    Generally, you leave wp-content alone.
    4. Upload all the new wordpress files.
    5. Load a browser and go to http://yoursite/wp-admin/. If the database needs an upgrade at this point, it will tell you so. If it does not, then it doesn’t need one.

    And that’s basically that.

    eh download link for 2.0.10 was in release archives, dumb me.

    It is there… http://wordpress.org/download/release-archive/
    (keep in mind: 2.0.10 will be after 2.0.1 and NOT after 2.0.9!)

    I administer two wordpresses. One is at 2.0.5 and the other is at 2.0.7. I plan to upgrade both to 2.0.10. I downloaded 2.0.10 from http://wordpress.org/wordpress-2.0.10.zip (thank you Otto42, for pointing to the URL)

    Is it necessary to go from 2.0.5 to 2.0.6, 2.0.6 to 2.0.7 etc. etc up to 2.0.10? Or will any security issues be covered by simply uploading 2.0.10? (after complete backup of both wps, naturally)

    No, you don’t need to go through all those steps; go directly for 2.0.10 in both cases.

    Thank you for the reply, rudolf45.
