If you’ve recently upgraded your WordPress blog to version 2.5, it’s time to upgrade again. This time you won’t notice any visual difference because this upgrade fixes some bugs and patches a security issue. You can read all about what’s included in this version on the official WordPress blog.
It sure is a pain having to manually upgrade your WordPress blog which is why I usually wait several weeks before upgrading mine. There are some cool auto upgrade plugins that I’ve started to check out and try which actually work quite well. The one that worked best for me is called “WordPress Automatic Upgrade” provided by techie-buzz.com.
It certainly makes upgrading much less painful since it automates the entire process step by step. Before I’d have to ftp everything to my server and then replace the existing directories which was a big pain. Don’t get me wrong, it’s not too difficult to do for one blog but when you’ve got several blogs running on many different hosts, it ends up becoming an all afternoon event.
So if you haven’t already, make sure you upgrade your 2.5 version of WordPress to 2.51. You can download the latest version from here. You might also want to try the auto upgrade plugin which I linked to above.
