    Hello, I have a customer running WordPress version 2.07 and I need to upgrade him to install a custom theme.

    Does anyone have any guidance how I might do the upgrade from such an old version? (I don’t care about the theme and he has no plugins).

    Thanks in advance,

    Callum.

    You will need to do incremental upgrades.

    http://codex.wordpress.org/Upgrading_WordPress_Extended

    Detailed Upgrade Instructions for 1.5.x, and versions 2.0 – 2.6.5, to 3.4.1

    The following are the instructions that explain the above steps in more detail. Please read all of the instructions before starting.

    If you plan on upgrading across more than two major releases, please consider upgrading incrementally to avoid potential conflicts. For example, if you plan on upgrading from 2.5 to 3.4.1, upgrade to 2.7 first, followed by 2.9, and finally 3.4.1. Essential, it’s okay to skip one release, but never skip TWO when upgrading.

    Brilliant. I did find that paper but thought it started at 2.7.

    Thanks.
