I'm looking at upgrading to 3.0 and have been on since 2.0 so figure it might be time for a fresh clean install of wordpress.
I'm wondering what the steps should be or if anyone knows of a guide. I know it would basically be copy everything out, backup database, delete wordpress, delete database, create new database, install wordpress, copy over plugins, themes and uploads, copy appropriate db table over.
Do I need to do this or is it really unnecessary pain? Is there an easier way?
