I just spent another hour downloading and insatlling a fresh copy of WordPress 2.5.1 (the only one available from my Host Provider. I made no changes or add-ons toit but installed it just as it came without problems. I installed it inot the directory @wordpresstwo" to avoid ruining the current existing one installed in the directroy "wordpress"
I meticuously fololowed the extended upgrade instructions to the letter. When I went to the URL for it after my upgrade i received the foolowing error message:
"Fatal error: Call to undefined function: wp_remote_post() in /home/starchil/public_html/wordpresstwo/wp-includes/cron.php on line 204"
Is there any option to just download the WordPress 2.7.1 already upgraded? Why is this so diffcult?
