What files should I upload for the upgrade?

  • First of all, congratulations to everyone who’ve worked on this new version 1.2 of WordPress.
    Here’s my question. What files do I have to upload in order to upgrade my blog?
    I’m currently under version 1.0.1, do I need to upgrade to 1.0.2 first or can I skip it to 1.2?
    Another thing, I have modified my index file extensively, do I have to “re-do” the new index.php file again or can I still use the one I’m using on my site after upgrading?
    The instructions for upgrading are not very specific, that’s why I have all these questions.
    Thanks in advance for the answers. Congratulations again on the new release.

  • frank,
    I’d back up everything you have.
    Then upload all of the new files.
    Then you must run /wp-admin/upgrade.php
    Then you can restore your index.php etc.

    Ok NuclearMoose,
    Thanks for your response. What about upgrading from 1.0.1 to 1.2? Would it be best to run 1.0.2 first or can I skip it?
    Greetings,

    When putting back your index.php, you should replace explicit references to
    $siteurl;
    with
    get_settings(‘siteurl’);

    Thanks, I’ll do that 🙂
