Upgrading to WordPress 2.5: A painless experience

March 29, 2008 @ 23:31 By: gordon Category: Meta, WordPress

WordPress 2.5 was released earlier today so after making backups of things, I checked out the upgrade instructions when using subversion and was happy to find that it basically involved changing to the root of my WordPress installation and then issuing the following command:

After watching the files scroll by, I pointed my browser at the upgrade URL, logged in and found everything appeared to be working.  I re-enabled my plugins and everything still seems to be working.
