WordPress 3.0 update

Update to 3.0 went pretty smoothly. I’m having some problem with images (added how to fix below)

  • Ran my custom backup script:

  • Downloaded wordpress 3.0:

  • Make sure you know the WP administrator user password as WP 3.0 uses a “Super Admin” interface.
  • No real special requirements for my site for wpmu upgrade most a lot of warnings about plugins and themes not necessarily being compatible.
  • Follow the directions or these even better directions
    • Disable plugins from site admin web page
    • Remove (save somewhere else) wp-admin, wp-includes
    • Extract the wordpress-3.0.files
    • Fix permisions (this is Apple’s Snow Leopard Server)

  • remove blogs.php

  • Modify .htaccess to add the rule for wp-files (replacings blogsphp):

  • Upgrade the site (site.com/wp-admin/upgrade.php). Login as the administrator user, if you don’t see “Super Admin” you aren’t the right user.
  • My site admin had some extra steps to perform like getting rid of blogs.php and adding some code
    for the cookies.
  • Update the plugins
