Sacre Bleu! It worked!

Well my very first wordpress upgrade was a success 🙂 [upgrade 2.0.2 – 2.0.4]. I did have a couple of hiccups along the way though. I carefully followed instructions for upgrading at the WordPress Codex – specifically the part about disabling all the plugins. Only thing is I disabled the Sidebar Widgets plug-in before disabling the plugins that required it. This resulted in disabling YAR! and the admin panel. Not to fear though – I remembered reading somewhere that if you get a problem with a plugin to just delete it or rename the file. So I renamed the entire widgets directory and voila – not only did I restore access to YAR! but I also disabled most of the plugins in the process.

Then I simply copied over the new wordpress files – did the “upgrade.php” bit and voila I now feature 2.0.4 wordpress goodness. Shazam!
