Tech Head – Word Press Site Upgrade

I’ve been meaning to do it for weeks and have finally upgraded the Tech Head blog to WordPress v2.5.1.

I thought I’d give this neat little automatic upgrade plug-in called, funnily enough, the ‘WordPress Automatic Upgrade’ plug-in a try.

It claims to be pain free, backs all important files, downloads the latest WordPress release and then installs it.

I made my own manual backup of everything before hand – not that I’m untrusting.  Yeah, right…  But this proved completely unnecessary as it really did what it said on the side of the tin. 

The whole site was backed up and upgraded within 5 minutes. 

Now why can’t all software be this good?  😉
