Updating Wordpress

Well, since I’ve been playing around with wordpress, I thought I would update it to the latest version. Mostly because I wanted to get rid of the annoying upgrade banner. So First things first

  1. Backup Files
      mkdir wpbackup
      cp -r /var/www/wordpress /var/www/wpbackup
  2. Backup Database
      mysqldump --add-drop-table -h localhost -u root -p wordpress | bzip2 -c > blog.bak.sql.bz2
  3. Disable Plugins. Check!
  4. Follow instructions on http://codex.wordpress.org/Upgrading_WordPress
