Am using wordpress version 2.5,should i upgrade it to 2.5.1 and if yes which files should i change?
Yes, unless you want to get hacked.
Just upload the entire distro, it’s easier and faster. (If you have broadband, anyway.)
Delete the following folders:
Delete all the *.php files from the root of WP EXCEPT wp-config.php.
Do not delete .htaccess or robots.txt if you have either of those.
Don’t forget to disable those plugins (or just cheat like I do and rename the /plugins folder temporarily).
Then upload the fresh files from the 2.5.1 distro. Navigate to /wp-admin/upgrade.php and you’re golden.
