I just got everything working this morning and overnight the good folk at WordPress.org made a new major release available for download… I’m going for it, now or never, before the blog gets established/populated. Wish this newbie luck!
I think I’ve backed up the database properly (this post excepted)… CYA!
I’m back! Everything mostly worked. Made a quick mod to Bad Behaivour to correct a documented issue, turned off the dangerous plugins (e.g. Postie already had issues with database references). I have my Link Exchange plugin enabled, although some wp-admin files and directories weren’t installed when I re-activated it and the style is completely absent from the pages now.
WP Link Exchange is some core functionality that I want in this site, so I’ll have to delve into it… off to the bookstore to buy a php book!
UPDATE: I’ve now upgraded to 2.5.1 following the detailed instructions for that. 2.5.1 is great! Fixes a number of issues I was having with the Image uploading, replacing my hand-edits.
