Apparently WordPress is under attack. As a result I was forced to upgrade despite my weeks of delaying. Here’s the story.
WordPress ver. 2.8 has been installed successfully. What a relief.
If, per chance, you tried to get to this blog recently, you were met with a Fatal Error message. Â That was the result of attempting to upgrade this blog to WordPress version 2.8 automatically. Â Even though the auto upgrade worked fine on another blog (StarFire), it crashed on this one.
A few things happened during the down period. Â Anne Flournoy’s short, The Louise Log #13 won a competition at New York’s channel Thirteen (you can view it at StarFire or here).
Meanwhile, #14 has been released:
Enjoy… Hopefully I’ll be back later today after I manually upgrade to version 2.8 (it’s supposed to be a security update as well as other things).
Recently WP 2.7.1 was released and when I hit the autoupgrade, I kept getting a fatal error.
It turns out that I had to deactivate and then delete my auto upgrade plugin first.
The new version of WP comes with the autoupdate built in.
Just a quick note, that I’ve upgraded the blog to WordPress 2.6.Â For information on what that means, you can check it out here at the WordPress blog, and watch the video too!
