Best way to upgrade 3.4.5 to 3.7 ? (4 posts)

    I finally got the go ahead from my client to update there wordpress website and all plugins.

    Updated WordPress from 2.9.2 to 3.5.2. It has gone really well - all plugins updated and working. Really went well.

    However, not really sure the best way to upgrade from 'Atahualpa 3.4.5' to the latest? Is an incramental upgrade better? Maybe get to 3.6 manually and then export? Or is better to just upgrade automatically to 3.7?

    I have a lot of customisation in place that I do not want to lose. Database and Files already backed up.

    Many Thanks

    backup everything (db abd files) then jump eirectl to 3.7.12, it should be fine as long as you haven't
    1) edited theme code (you'll need to redo that) or
    2) you haven got php imbedded in any of the theme options - this was removed due to a WordPress Theme restriction

    It's actually not that easy. I tried to copy Atahualpa 3.4.9 options to Atahualpa 3.7.12 and the new version complained, "Sorry, this doesn't appear to be a valid Atahualpa settings file."
