I can’t update my site from the backdoor and I’ve already loaded the latest WordPress on my site via FileZilla. Why can’t I find a widget to upload. When I try to upgrade from the standard line at the top, it wants me to download the upgrade and unzip, etc. I’ve already done all that.

Thanks for not skipping the backup part of the upgrade.
Good to see that you use Cpanel to backup.
I have been using Cpanel to upgrade but it is always way behind with the latest version.
Perhaps I’ll start using the WordPress auto upgrade.

Nice video Adria.
I ran into some problems upgrading to WordPress 2.9 on my hosting provider 1&1 because a newer version of MySQL database was required. I got an error message saying:
“ERROR: WordPress 2.9 requires MySQL 4.1.2 or higher”
In case anyone else has this problem, here is what I did to fix it and get everything working again:
I like the new features in WordPress 2.9!

Thanks. Yes, hopefully all hosting companies serve MySQL 5 out of the box but there are many still running 4.x. Also, there are a ton of blogs out there on really old versions like 2.3 or worse yet, they were installed on a Windows server using Wamp that no one has updated in ages.
All those things can create problems when doing an automatic upgrade but none should prevent the ever so important step of backups! *smile*

Just come back to have another look.
A question… where did you save your backup to?
Hosting accound, your hard drive?

Thanks for the helpful info. Make sure you back things up. We learned the hard way.

Can I only update if my blog doesn’t end with wordpress.com?
