Starting from scratch instead of upgrading?
I’m running the WordPress 1.2 and since I believe in “If it works, don’t fix it” I haven’t upgraded to 1.21. However, if there are some security concerns I might have to do it anyway so I want to upgrade to 1.22.
My problem is that I have absolutely no clue what files I have changed and just now that I will run into some obscure problem if I try to upgrade.
So, I was thinking that I should do the same thing as whenever windows crash. Format the hard drive and reinstall.
I’m using a web hotel without shell axess.
Wouldn’t it be simple just to backup the whole database, erase the wordpress folder and start all over again? If I just erase the folder, will all the entries, comments, categories and stuff reappear once wordpress 1.22 is installed? Or do I need to import it somehow?
Thanx in advance.
