[resolved] Another clueless person needing update help (6 posts)

    Hi
    I had some kind volunteer from WordPress initially set my website up for me, so I am sorry to say I just don't have much idea what's going on. I am long overdue for an update (currently using 2.3.1) and, of course, have no idea how to proceed.
    Earlier today I went to my BlueHost control panel and used the automated backup and SimpleScripts upgrade. Unfortunately, upon visiting my website there was the start-up page you get when first launching a website (the plain blue Just Another WordPress... thing). So I called BlueHost and they fixed everything. The guy I talked to did not understand why that happened and we left it at that. I was just happy to have my site back.
    Is the volunteer service still available? I am not sure how I found that in the first place.
    thanks and have a great day

    I think I may have figured it out, but I am scared to try it.

    Here's the 'manual'. You can click through to the extended instructions.

    The last time I used the WordPress Automatic Upgrade plugin, which worked wonderfully. It makes your backups, downloads the WP pack, inzips it and talks you through the whole process. Just download and install the plugin and then you're off.
