Making The WordPress Upgrade A Piece Of Cake

So one thing I make sure I do is keep my current version of WordPress up to date to one make sure any security holes/issues are patched up as well as to take advantage of new features that help enhance my blogging experience.

Now with that said if you are not a guru when it comes to updating systems or wanna make sure you do everything right and now bork your blog then the WordPress Automatic upgrade is the plugin for you. It makes the upgrade process a piece of cake!

Wordpress automatic upgrade upgrades your wordpress installation by doing the following steps.

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.

This has been a valuable plugin I would highly recommend. Oh and hey they just released version 2.9 so now is your chance to try it out.
