Upgrading from 2.3.3 to 2.5.1 (initial mysql db backup has been made)
Hi, this is the first time I have problems upgrading WordPress since my 6 months blogging. So, I was going to upgrade from 2.3.3 to 2.5.1. These were the steps that I took:
1. Backup my blog database.
2. Deleted all my files (of course, saving themes, plugins)- but, didn’t deactivate my plugins (I’m not sure if that should be my real problem).
3. So the initial database was still online. Now, I upload by FTP the new version (2.5.1).
I don’t get the “UPGRADE” button that people seem to talk about around here. It just asks me to install WordPress. I’ve installed it. I’ve tried to upload WordPress eXtended RSS or WXR file, but these kind of things are new to me. So I don’t have those files. The closer thing that I thought I had was the RSS import option, but I can’t do that either. The thing is I was used to only backup my database, nothing else.
Ever since, I’ve tried surfing over the Internet, searching for a site that has wordpress 2.3.3 available for download, just to restore all my blog, just like it was before. I’ve found nothing.
So, is there any way that I could restore my blog back, or I could get my blog upgraded to 2.5.1 if I have my previous 2.3.3. mysql db backup? I’m really desperate…
