Support » Installing WordPress » Quick question about upgrading

  • I’m following the upgrade tutorial and it says

    Delete these Files and Folders:

    * wp-* (except for those above), readme.html, wp.php, xmlrpc.php, and license.txt; files; Typically files in your root or wordpress folder. Again, don’t delete the wp-config.php file.
    * wp-admin

    What is wp-*? Does that mean every file that starts with “wp” besides the ones that it says NOT to delete?

    Thanks.

  • if you’re upgrading from 2.6.2 to 2.6.3 you only need to delete/upload (personally I just overwrite) these files that changed.

    wp-admin/includes/media.php
    wp-content/plugins/akismet/akismet.php
    wp-includes/class-snoopy.php
    wp-includes/version.php

    As a general rule you delete all files except wp-config.php in wordpress root. The entire /wp-admin and /wp-includes (except maybe files you modified) folders leaving /wp-content folder intact.
    Upload all files and folders and run upgrade.php.
    Be sure and disable all plugins before upgrade
