Upgrading WordPress


Published June 30, 2005

While installing a plugin for WordPress early today, I read the notice in the dashboard for a security update. Since the update was a minor one and involved only replacing files, I proceeded to update the WordPress installations for my and my wifes blogs.

The actual update took less than a minute but the uploading and downloading of files took close to two hours. By the time WordPress was released, I still havent backed up my files and data and doing it through a very slow connection was a test in patience, to put it mildly.

WordPress actually offered a simpler option to close the security hole address by the update delete the xmlrpc.php file. But I figured that since the update was already available, I should just install it.
