My wife can’t wait any longer for wordpress 2.7. He ask me to upgrade her blog to wordpress 2.7 RC1.
I agree to update her blog but I choose to upgrade mine first, in case of failed upgrade I can learn a lot before taking control my wife blog 🙂
Here’s the steps :
1. Backup my blog first, start from backup database using shell.
Use cat command to see username, password and database that I use for my blog
mysqldump -uonezero5_alam -p onezero5_alamsyah > alamsyah.sql
Compress all files in single tar.gz file
tar cvzf alamsyah.tar.gz alamsyah
I just curious to check how big my blog is 🙂
du -sh alamsyah.tar.gz
Download wordpress 2.7 RC1
Extract the file
Move to my blog folder and copying all file
cp -avr ~/www/wordpress/* .
Don’t use u option, I use u (for update option but I get fail)
2. Upgrade wordpress
Update database by typing my blog adress
Login to admin to see shiny wordpress 2.7
I can’t wait next 5 days before 2.7 release, please forgive me 😉
