  • Fifth time’s the charm 🙂

    I googled to see whether other people were having trouble with the upgrade to WordPress 2.1. Most were successful on their first try, but a few people had problems that were similar to me. I made two changes and tried again: I ensured that my user had full permissions on the DB I […]
