Usually, upgrading WordPress is no big deal – click a button in the admin page, and voilà1 – done!
However, for some odd reason my hosting company allocated just small amount for my web site and I couldn’t do an auto-upgrade. I had to do it the old fashion way, and download the TAR.GZ file from WordPress.org.
Anyway, I don’t normally announce upgrades unless it’s an important milestone, or a security concern. Vladimir Prelovac mentioned the need to upgrade to 2.8.4 due to a security hole in WordPress.
I procrastinated because I felt my blog was small enough (and non-controversial), it would be a bother to hack it. Plus, I’ve protected the admin pages using IP based access.
Today, I thought since I was already in a clean-up and fix-it sort of mood, I went ahead and upgraded all of my WordPress based web sites.
It also gives me an excuse to write a blog entry about it.
