Support » Installing WordPress » 2.3.1 to 2.7.0 upgrade caveats

  • besonen


    i need to upgrade a blog from 2.3.1 to 2.7.0. is there any reason i shouldn’t go straight to 2.7.0?

    my preferred upgrade procedure is to export the db, perform a fresh install of 2.7.0, and then import the db into 2.7.0.

    i’m imagining that wordpress will uncomplainingly make any db changes that are necessary post-db-import.

    i also imagine that it might be prudent to first upgrade to a previous version of wordpress (say 2.5) and then from there goto 2.7.0–for the simple reason that wordpress 2.7.0 is less likely to have issues.

    any feedback on upgrading to 2.7.0 from 2.3.1 would be greatly appreciated.

    2.3.1 to 2.7 should work, but more success seems to be the process of upgrading from 2.3.1 to 2.5, then 2.5 to 2.7.

    Your database export scenario will not work.

    Upgrading from 2.3 to 2.7.1 using the database export method worked without a hitch for me. Even the new option WP 2.7.1 gives to import your uploads folder went great!

    How did you end up upgrading David?
