    "Update: In our effort to optimize we made two mistakes in 1.5.1, one related to feeds and one related to trackbacks and pingbacks. We’ve updated the download with which corrects these bugs and a few others."



    Was that sunny enough for you?

    Just follow the tutorials. Everything works smooth here, zero problem during and after upgrading. In my experience with all blogging tools, WP is the most friendly blogging tool ever.

    Everything worked fine except for some problems with theme editor and the rss feeds but I've fixed the later problem.

    Upgrade took less than 10 minutes!

    Had no problem installing mine either with the exception of the RSS feed to which I found a fix thanks to the support forum.

    More power to the group!!!

    I love WordPress!!!

    You know, when I think about the weekly auto updates for Windows and some of my other "auto" software, I think that WordPress developers responded really well with the early release of 1.5.1 featuring many fixes and little improvements. And then to pop up with the release to fix the two bugs discovered after the first release so FAST - wow! They could have left these until the next big release, but they wanted to help everyone NOW!

    Many of these things aren't caught until a LOT of users with different systems and demands upon the program start using it. The testers do their very best, but they are a small group compared to the thousands of you out there using WordPress with all your different configurations. You are the real testers.

    Upon learning of the two big problems, they jumped.

    I don't see other companies with great resources moving that fast. I have one HTML Editor program that I adore that I upgraded a year and a half ago and the use of one of my favorite features in the program wiped out my entire website on my hard drive. I have contacted customer support, technical support, called, written letters, and....well, I still haven't gotten one word of help from a formerly very helpful company.

    The neat things about WordPress are:

    1) It's Free
    2) If you don't screw with it, it's really easy to use
    3) If you screw with it, there is a lot of help to fix it
    4) There are other options out there (free and not)
    5) You don't have to use it
    6) You don't have to upgrade
    7) A whole lot of people who CARE are working hard for you behind the scenes

    Thanks to everyone contributing to this thread to let others know that their install went well. For those on other threads dealing with the issues of installation problems, I thank all of the volunteers who are pitching in overtime to help you all get it figured out.

    I skipped over 1.5.1 and went straight to My upgrade went like this:

    wget http://wordpress.org/latest.tar.gz
    gunzip latest.tar.gz
    tar xf latest.tar
    cd wordpress
    rm -r wp-content
    cp -r * ~/web/blog
    cp -r * ~/web/nixblog
    cp -r * ~/web/jenblog
    cp -r * ~/petit*

    Then from the browser I ran upgrade.php at the four blogs.

    That was it, four blogs upgraded in less than 5 minutes, and no problems so far. Putting themes in wp-content makes upgrading a breeze.

    I've never had any problems with WP. I've only been using it since this past December (converted from Greymatter-WP is much better). But I've installed it, upgraded a couple times, used it almost every day, and never had any probs at all. I currently use WP as the news/updates section of my site, and the rest of my site is made up of static pages. I just came to the realization that if I made all those static pages WP pages, it would make my site so much easier to manage. So I'll be doing that soon and I think it's going to rock.
    So yeah for WP! :)

    Upgraded one blog from 1.2.2 to and three other blogs from 1.5.1 to Everything went fine. Even upgraded the 1.2.x style to a 1.5.x theme without any glitch. I was a bit afraid of the first one (1.2 --> but it was much easier than I thought! Now back to the blogging and designing...

    My blog use to be powered by b2evo and I decided to come back to WP because of spam. I installed the new version, and then imported from my b2evo install to my WP install. It all worked out great. A big thanks to the development team for making such an awesome blogging software: http://jpministries.com/blog

    Just did four upgrades to 1.5.11 - took me all of 20 minutes total (including overwriting the wp-admin/edit-form-advanced.php, index.php, and wp-admin.css files on each of the four).

    Thanks to all the developers for their time and talents!

    I had 1.5.1 and today I saw about 1.5.11. I did the edit in the WP blog, and now I get

    Warning: Cannot modify header information

    all over the place in the Admin section.

    I then took out the 1.5.11 edit, checked again, and I still get the errors. I can't even log out of my Admin panel because I've got the errors so badly.

    Is anyone else getting this?

    Damned. I used my server's editing applet to make the 1.5.11 edit and it added extra spaces at the bottom. How incredibly stupid is that?

    I guess that'll teach me to use it to edit things in the future, eh?

    Hello, I am completely new at WordPress. I haven't posted much yet, positive or negative, but I have spent a lot of time reading other people's questions and answers. Lorelle and others, please don't be discouraged. Keep up the good work. I know that when I have a specific question, I can ask it here.

    I'll report that WordPress is not completely-easy for me as a first time user, but, I am able to figure some things out by reading this forum. In time I will understand my WP better. This forum is helping.

    The thing that I dislike about the Codex is the lack of visual examples -- screenshots or links to websites using whatever technique is being described in the Codex. I like this forum more, because people post the link to their blog showing the problem, and sometimes post a link to another blog that has the feature they want working properly. Then someone posts the explanation of how to do it. More links and screenshots please!
