    I know I need to update to the latest WP version, but I've been reading about the problems others are having, and I'm terrified I'll screw something up. Is there anything special I need to do before updating from 2.7.1 to 3.0.1? My website is http://www.RitaHubbard.com.

    Thanks for any help you can give me.

  2. Update to 2.9 and then 3.0.1, but ... it's really not that terrible :) So long as you take good backups before you start, you won't lose anything.

    Thanks ipstenu,
    I'm off to give it a try. But first I have to figure out how to backup my database. I'm with Godaddy so I'll give them a call before I do anything.

    Have a great one,

  4. Check out http://codex.wordpress.org/WordPress_Backups

    You shuold be able to export your SQL database to a file and save that to your desktop. And you can ftp all the files on your webserver down, so that gets you everything :)

    Got my backups taken care of thru the backup system at Godaddy, but thanks for everything you did for me. Thanks to you I found some automatic wordpress backup plugins I'm studying, and when I find the best fit, I'll install it.

    Have a great evening!
