  • Who is your host?

    What problems are you having?

    Also might consider upgrading from 2.3.1 to 2.5, then to 2.7.

    See Upgrading WordPress Extended

    verio is the provider. They have a wordpress easy setup on the site however it loads 2.3.1. When i try upgrading notheing happens. i upload the files into the wordpress 2.3.1 folder but when i log into wordpress it continues to show PLease update now

    You may be uploading files to the wrong folder.

    Please review Uploading WordPress to a remote host and Upgrading WordPress (or Upgrading WordPress Extended).

    I’m gonna bump this thread because I have the same problem and I’m not finding the answer.

    I have a stock 2.3.1install from Verio, and the theme I bought doesnt even register as avaliable so I need to upgrade it.

    I made a new config php from the sample using the same database values from the old one. (I did miss the part about disabling plugins though)

    My stock installation had a wordpress folder and then a wordpress 2.3.1 folder alongside it.

    In any case, I backed up everytying then deleted BOTH folders and dropped the newest version in, then dropped in the updated config.php

    all of these folders were in a file called etc. on my FTP server. Under the www/htdocs/ there is another wordpress folder that looks like it just points to the files in etc – but I dont know how to download or edit that file.

    What is wierd though – is that my admin panel still works as does the site (albeit with the stock theme) and it still thinks that it’s 2.3.1 even those files are now gone…

    I’m a winemaker – not a codie so any help you can render would be invalueable.
