WordPress › Blog » WordPress 2.6
Is there any problem with latest version of WP ? Someone complain about this at DP.
Is updating wordpress difficult? I don't really see the need since Im at 2.5...
I heard that its not difficult. And btw there is online guide available for that so you can go through it.
I haven't had any issues from upgrading to 2.6. By the way, I will have Reddit and dZone plugins available soon which are similar to the Digg plugin I created.
Have you upgraded manually or through any upgrading plugin ?
Upgrading WP is easy. They do have a major software problem though. It's called "Constant Update Syndrome". Hopefully 2.7 will wait until 2009.
Appreciate if you let us know step by step guide for that please.
Wordpress have a really helpful three step upgrade guide. You can follow it as a step by step upgrade and is fairly painless.
I use ftp to copy the files to the server so find it a bit of a drag, but it usually goes easily.
On one blog I did have trouble with 2.6 that was on a windows server and had custom permalinks set to /index.php/%postname%/ . The new version seems to have forgotten about it, consequently receiving lots of 404 page not found errors. Fortunately it's now on an apache server so with htaccess available used a redirect.
Anyone with this problem might find it worth waiting for version 2.6.1 which should fix the problem.
Other than that upgrade was a breeze.
