So I hope this isn't a duplicate thread but I didn't see one like it. when we (someone who knows more helped me with it) installed WordPress on my server we changed the root directory so that I do not have to redirect visitors to the /home directory. so my question is, when I extract the update for 2.8.5 will it have trouble installing or do I need to do anything special? I know my friend changed some stuff in my database settings so that the paths were correct (this may not be the right terminology)
Also is it worth it? will I see enough difference between my version and the new one to justify the hassle of installing it?
thanks for the help.
