Support » Fixing WordPress » Newb question about upgrading

  • Hello all,

    I am currently running WP version 2.0.1. I would like to upgrade to the newest version, 2.1.2, but I’m pretty much completely inept with this stuff – I feel it is a real testament to WP’s product that I got it set up in the first place a year ago, heh.

    Can I upgrade straight from 2.0.1 to 2.1.2, or do I need to download the patches in between?

    And is there anything special I need to know to upgrade? Do I just download teh new version and copy it over the old version, or is it more complicated than that – and if so, are there directions included with the upgrade?

    Finally: I am getting on the order of 300-400 spam comments a day right now. I saw some recommendations elsewhere in the forum – s plugin called Bad Behavior, to be used in conjunction with Spam Karma. Can anyone else vouch for these? Will they at least make it so I don’t spend a good 30 mins per day just cleaning out comments?

    Thanks in advance!
