yay! at last. AloneinHome.com had been upgraded to WordPress 2.6!! :party:

Alhamdulillah 😉

I still new in using WordPress and started AloneinHome.com with WordPress 2.5.1

Suddenly, the latest version – WordPress 2.6 had been released.

“oh no. what should i do??” :confused:

I tried to find out how to upgrade to version 2.6 but.. er.. it’s manual upgrade.. and uh-huh.. it’s quite hard.. you have to..

– download the latest wordpress version
– backup your database and files
– deactivate the plugin and have to remember them. oh. sheesh. i don’t wanna do that.
– delete old wordpress files except certain important files
– upload new wordpress files
– upgrade, reactivate plugin, configure and bla, bla, bla.

uh 😮

but how i managed to upgrade? jeng3. some of you surely know this.
