Someone has written a plugin that supposedly automatically upgrades WP. Is this worth using?
I have a WP blog on my wife's domain but it was exploited by hackers so the webhost folks are demanding I upgrade to the latest WP however the last time I tried to do this I lost all content and had to go to my backup with the older version. I followed the WP instructions TO THE LETTER but had all sorts of problems. Any advice, instructions, etc. on how best to approach this is desperately needed. I don't want to lose my blog but if I can't get the upgrade to work WITHOUT losing years worth of content then I don't know what to do. Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with help. I need advice especially since it messed up badly last time I tried.
