Is upgrading hard or easy? 1.5.x to 2.x
I’m hesitant to upgrade to WP2 because of error posts I’ve read on the support forum, and uncertain if the advantages of WP2 outweigh any imagined risks. Should I attempt it?
Background: I keep backups of my database but have never reinstalled it. I have worked with WordPress for 1 year and know my way around the files in the FTP, but I am novice at the theme and MySQL.
My site only uses a modified Kubrick theme (should be simple right, it’s the default – but I have read about errors), with about 15 plugins, and I’m afraid it will break in the upgrade and how will I pinpoint what’s to blame? Yes, I can check the list for compatible plugins, and can delete any plugins that won’t work in the upgrade. But what about the theme? Should I expect to start-over on my theme?
Also, I am satisfied with WP 1.5.x, except that I want to use Gallery 2.1.x and WP-G2, and they recommend strongly WP 2.x. Is it worth upgrading for this situation?
