After putting it off for so long I have finally upgraded WordPress in my website. Yah me!
I kept thinking that it was way too complicated for me to handle and that I would either get someone to do it for me or get online guidance as I do it. But today, realizing that I would never be able to use any of the newer WordPress themes that I have been dying to try without going for an upgrade, I just went ahead and did it.
It took me about an hour but I managed to easily follow the instructions as given in WordPress.org and voila! It was done. Actually it wasn’t that easy. I got stuck on the wp-config.php file and didn’t know how to work it out. For a few minutes, I thought that I had lost everything and that all the work I had put into this blog was flushed down the toilet. It took a few more minutes of level headedness and a few copying and pasting of code and I was done.
So I’m officially using WordPress 2.6.2. I’ve also decided to use a new theme for the site and will spend the rest of the evenining customizing it.
