    The other thread contains:

    A REVISED xmlrpc.php FILE

    which you can use.

    With only 5 changed files, would it make sense to make a patch available for download? Just food for future thought, especially on these security updates.




    The entire WordPress download is small enough that patches don’t provide much real benefit. And making patches available makes it one more support question for new users: “Which update do I download?!”

    Alright, it works for post/edit, but there’s another problem that was already reported here:

    Actually, if the update is labeled as an “upgrade” and the full install is labeled as just that, it would definitely be much easier. It not necessary about the matter of size of the download, it’s about convenience. And downloading the whole install package just to install 5 files (with no DB update) seems just a wee bit bothersome.

    They’re very anti-patches for some reason. I’ve made do with deleting xmlrpc.php, that should hold me until If they think I’m doing a full upgrade on four installations for every single release they’re on crack.

    Well, copying the changed files on 5 installs took me less than 10 minutes total – and I’m on dialup…. it’s just really not a big deal….

    What does the darn xmlrpc file do anyway?

    Hurrah! All worked – thank you!

    I made a patch available for upgrading from to It contains only the five affected files and the latest xmlrpc.php patch.

    Thanks angsuman…. IOW, all that stuff I can’t be bothered to mess with…. no wonder I didn’t have a clue!

    I just wanted to say that I upgraded all three of my blogs this afternoon in less than 45 minutes. It probably would have been less but I was having problems with my ftp connection and had to restart the upload a number of times.

    Everything seems to be o.k. so far but then, I followed the directions.

    Just my 2cents.

    I’ve just upgraded to and Comments and permalinks to posts are broken. I can’t see what I’ve done wrong, or what file I might have left out. Can anyone help?

    tonusp – what version did you upgrade from ?

    It was about February I last upgraded, so I think it was just 1.5

    OK, I think it may be working now. I don’t think it says anywhere in the accessible documentation (i.e. 5 second upgrade instructions) that you have to log in as admin, go to Options > Permalinks > and Upgrade structure of permalinks.

    Or have I missed the obvious place where it says this?
