I was reluctant to upgrade my WordPress 1.5.x to the most recent version because there were quite a lot of warnings given on the official site. Especially the part about backing up the SQL database made me postpone. However Brian just posted a reassuring explanation with a handy script, promising a painless WordPress update in 35 seconds. Well, it took a bit longer for me since I had to adjust a few paths but – hey – it worked just fine! Welcome to WordPress 2.4! Thanks Brian!
