alternate upgrade wordpress method when new method fail

Upgrade to wordpress seem to be difficult for such conditions :

  • Self hosted wordpress in shared hosting.
  • Self hosted wordpress ( free hosting)
  • Self server with little memory

I face few problem when doing wordpress upgrade.

In this case ” You don’t have sufficient permission to access this page

Upgrade WordPress

Downloading update from http://wordpress.org/wordpress-2.8.3.zip.

Unpacking the update.

Verifying the unpacked filese

Installing the latest version

Upgrading database

WordPress upgraded successfully

That message display when upgrade process went smooth, but when something wrong like insufficient memory that might happen in shared hosting I choose to do in old way : WPAU way.
