• Still in the Update Mood – #3

    January 26th, 2007HARTHmmmm Things, Quickies

    * I have upgraded from wordpress version 2.0.4 to wordpress version 2.1

    I have updated AndYouRetire.com blog.

    The longest part of the conversion is backing up the web files first and uploading the new files.

    This time, I “nuked” the /wp-admin and /wp-includes folders through my cPanel filing system itself, than my WS_FTP_LE program that I like to use. With my own FTP program, I have to delete all the files first before I can delete a folder and when doing it from the cPanel it’s all in one step (plus I can recover if I make a mistake). My open source FileZilla FTP program can also do it … but I don’t like that program because I don’t trust the destination of the drag and dropping ways.

    Good News and Bad News …

    First the good news: I am more confident with the upgrading now.

    Now the bad news: Geesh – the Tropical Grunge Monster Template that I was using was bringing database errors in the sidebar for the blogroll / linking section. It took me forever to figure out a way to delete it (being a non-PHP person) because there was a complicated “IF” statement covering the pages and the linking section in one, and it took me awhile before I figured that out!

    Ultimately – I still didn’t figure it out, because when I got it to finally work – the PAGES are not showing up now. But, I’ll be selecting another template soon .. so I don’t feel it’s important to reinvent the wheel at this stage. I’ll toss up a link to my about page which, was the one page removed and the contact form.
