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:

  1. I ensured that my user had full permissions on the DB
  2. I performed the upgrade from a fresh directory untar of 2.1 (previously, I untarr’ed on top of 2.0.7)

I doubt that #2 had any effect, but I may as well be complete in my report.

This time, everything went fine. This post is being brought to you courtesy of WordPress 2.1. Whew 😉
