WordPress Upgrading Options
A few weeks ago one of my clients asked me to upgrade their WordPress versions from 2.5 to 2.5.1.Â I was a little reluctant to make the jump.Â You see, I’m the type that waits for Fantastico to support the WordPress version before I actually make the upgrade.Â I figured that IF Fantastico would support it, then it would be stable.Â I couldn’t help but agree in my mind that Fantastico would pass a WordPress version if it’s as stable as it gets.Â I’ve never regretted this method, it has always worked for me.
But my client wanted it upgrade for some reason, I pressed on to ask “Why?” and he went on to say “Well you see I have a personal/family blog and I’ve upgraded to WordPress 2.5.1 already and it all works well.”, he said.Â “Hmmm… Ok!” was my YM reply.Â And so I finally did.
I knew that when I do this that I’m jumping from the safety of Fantastico to the world of manual upgrades from hereon, but the client wanted it so what the hey.Â I did it.Â Works well.Â The only draw back was that I had to install a wordpress script that would check the version against the most current online version and let IT update my WordPress.Â
Goodbye Fantastico … for now, at least for this client.
I’d still go the Fantastico way for my other clients.Â I’m happy nonetheless that I have known this little script that acts like how I would like Fantastico to upgrade/update my WordPress…
Oh, if you want me to tell you that WordPress plugin… Will post that up next time!Â
Hang on tight!
