WordPress Version Update – 2.2.1

By , Saturday, 23rd June, 2007

Tonight I have updated to the latest version of WordPress – Version 2.2.1. This has been out for a couple of days now, so I also used this time to change the installation format of WordPress. I did have it as a cPanel Fantastico installation, but was finding that there was quite some time between the newest version being released and the updates being available through Fantastico. I had noticed that for not only this site, but also my personal site, paulgray.id.au.

So I backed up all my files and the mysql database. Deleted the Fantastico installation of WordPress. Created a new mysql database, imported the data from the old database and uploaded the WordPress V2.2.1 files. I made some alterations to the wp-config.php file, and everything worked smoothly, whew!!

I found these sites handy for giving me the instructions on how to do this:

  1. WordPress Codex – WordPress Backups
  2. WordPress Codex – Backing Up Your Database
  3. Tamba2’s Backup with phpMyAdmin
  4. WordPress Codex – Upgrading WordPress
  5. WordPress Codex – Check for Plugin Compatibility
