  • I have not yet installed 2.0.6, and now I see that 2.0.7 has been released. The development blog says “Because this is a much smaller update than previous versions, you do not have to update all of WordPress’ files if you’re upgrading from version 2.0.6.”

    Since I am not upgrading from 2.0.6, should I install that first and then install 2.0.7? I’d appreciate a clarification, thanks! My blog is

  • No, just install 2.0.7 (from 2.0.4 what you have).
    Install ALL the files and follow the usual instructions – see the Codex.

    Just to clarify, you need to do a FULL install of 2.0.7 not just the small file set that is listed as the upgrade.
    Do to the download page, and download the file, then follow the instructions for an upgrade.

    Well, actually, as with most released softwares, you do not need to install version of 2.0.6; if you are planning to use its new released version, that is WordPressv2.0.7. Like you, i am new also to WordPress; but I encountered no problem during installation. Just follow and read all instructions in Getting Started with wordpress; and steps on How To Install WordPress as it was provided from their site itself

    And just a note: the OP (original poster) is NOT starting a new blog, is upgrading one – and I gave hime exactly the right link for the upgrade guide in the Codex.
