WordPress 1.5.1 has just been released. Upgrading is very very easy and it’s recommended. Go do it!


Update: The WordPress Development Blog finally posted about this, and pointed to Podz’s upgrade thread. I’ll be doing this later this evening. Yay!

  2. “On the server and at blog root, delete the old WordPress files and upload new ones. I recommend you do this one by one if you are not sure. Do not delete wp-config.php.”

    Perhaps that could be more vague? Have you done this upgrade yet Bryan? It appears as though one minute, the instructions say to delete only a couple folders, then later they say to delete “the old WordPress files” at the “blog root”…sounds a lot like wiping it out and doing a fresh install…I don’t understand the difference.


  3. I haven’t yet, but it kind of is a fresh install. The old WordPress files aren’t referring to the directories. That’s in step 5, referring to the thread. I thought it was fairly clear. If you need help, I can give you a hand.


  4. In the root folder, just the files and not the directories. If files in your FTP client are listed in alpha order, that’d be index.php thru xmlrpc.phpexcept wp-config.php.
