Is there an easier way? (5 posts)

    I want to upgrade WP but after a couple of bad experiences before, I am very worried about doing it.

    I tried downloading a free plugin to do this automatically but it didn't work for me?!?

    Is there any other way / paid service which allows me to have my site updated without me having to worry about breaking anything?

    Here's a new upgrade plug-in I just found. I have to upgrade myself, so I'm going to give it a try and let you know how it went.

    I tried the WP upgrade plugin and it worked just fine. What specific warnings/errors do you get?

    I run a free script installation service where I take up this kind of support requests. I am not sure I can give out the URL here, lest am considered to be spamming it.

    I tried the plugin and got the following error:
    Warning: ftp_chdir() expects parameter 1 to be resource, boolean given in /home/fhlinux208/t/mysite.com/user/htdocs/blog/wp-content/plugins/wordpress-automatic-upgrade/wpau_prelimcheck.class.php on line 397

    The plug-in worked for me, mostly.

    Only problem: all the download links, like the one you click to get the zipped copy of your database backup, are broken.

    Reason: the plug-in seems to assume that your WordPress URL and your Blog URL are the same.

    I'm looking at the code to see if I can find some kind of 'site_URL' global variable. It should only need one tiny change, I think.
