A Plugin That Lets You Upgrade To WordPress 2.7 Easily

Update 2020: This post is now outdated and archived, but feel free to read it to remember what it was like. ?

WordPress 2.7 has been around quite a long time already, and I was still using wordpress 6. It was because I do not know exactly how to upgrade it. So, I didn’t upgrade to wordpress 2.7.

One day, my friend, Sundar, asked me whether I have upgraded to the latest version of wordpress. I said no. He then introduced a plugin that lets you upgrade to 2.7 easily. It’s called WordPress Automatic Upgrade.

According to its description, here’s how the plugin works:

  1. Backs up the files and makes available a link to download it.
  2. Backs up the database and makes available a link to download it.
  3. Downloads the latest files from http://wordpress.org/latest.zip and unzips it.
  4. Puts the site in maintenance mode.
  5. De-activates all active plugins and remembers it.
  6. Upgrades wordpress files.
  7. Gives you a link that will open in a new window to upgrade installation.
  8. Re-activates the plugins

It will guide you step by step through all that.

After finishing the steps, I saw wordpress 2.7 in front of my eyes! It is more advanced and is much easier to navigate than 2.6.

I hope you will find wordpess 2.7 useful and easy. Again, to download the plugin, click here.

I think this is mainly for earlier version of WordPress (2.6.X). For the newer version of WordPress (2.7.X) come with one click button to upgrade. Fast & simple.
