Support » Installing WordPress » Help me overcome the Digital Divide! Update my wordpress version

  • I’m looking for an altruistic person that will update the wordpress version of my blog so that it reflects the latest word press edition (excluding any beta versions). It is probably very simple for you, but very hard for me because of the following:

    1. I started my blog 5 years ago, and learned all I know about wordpress at that time (and I’ve forgotten it).

    2. I suffer from repetitive stress injuries to my hand and arms (aka carpal tunnel, nerve subluxation, neurological damage, excruciating pain) which makes my keyboarding time limited.

    3. I have a complete non-profit blog about higher education, which provides lots of ideas on cutting costs of a college education.
    I could enumerate a lot more, but you probably have better things to do than read them. I did sign up with jumpple today, so that might be helpful. If you need any more info to give you.

    4. From a cursory glance at the instructions, this process wouldn’t seem to take more than 10 minutes for an experienced wordpress user.

    P.S. If you can provide a step-by-step instruction or direct me to one so that I can just follow the steps, that would be OK too.

    P.P.S. This could lead to a paying tech gig down the line since I am getting a lot of attention in the higher ed. community.

    P.P.P.S. I hope this is legal, but I can offer a free collectible book as payment as I am a rare book collector.

    You could upgrade to WordPress 3.0 using this guide. Once the site was up & running again, you could repeat the process to upgrade to WordPress 3.1. Once that ias complete, you should be able to use the 1-click auto-upgrade to complete the final step to WP 3.2.1.

    Just remember to:
    – backup your database before you begin and again after each successful upgrade
    – deactivate all plugins and switch to the default theme before staring the upgrade process.

    You can find copies of WordPress 3.0 and 3.1 at
