Upgrading to WordPress 2.4

I host at

One of their best features is SSH access to my domain.
So when I upgrade WordPress. I can simply

1. ssh to my server, then issue the command, –> wget

2. which will download the wordpress files to the server, then

If you have shell access to your web server, and are comfortable using console-based tools, you may wish to download WordPress directly to your web server. You can do so using wget , lynx or another console-based web browser, which are valuable if you want to avoid FTPing. Place the package in a directory parallel to your current wordpress directory (like “uploads,” for example). Then, unzip it using: gunzip -c wordpress-2.0.4.tar.gz | tar -xf – or by using: tar -xzvf latest.tar.gz

3. so issuing the command –> tar -xzvf latest.tar.gz
will expand the archive to a folder called wordpress

4. Copy from the blog folder to wordpress

wp-config.php file;
wp-content folder;
wp-images folder;
wp-includes/languages/ folder–if you are using a language file, do not delete this folder;.
.htaccess file–if you have added custom rules to your .htaccess, do not delete it;
Custom Content and/or Plugins–if you have any images or other custom content or Plugins inside the wp-content folder, do NOT delete them.

5. Rename the blog folder to blog old –> mv blog blogold

6. Rename the wordpress folder to blog –> mv wordpress blog

7. Run the upgrade process

My PC’s

I have two computers, or four if you count my Xbox and a disassembled computer.

I have a Shuttle XPC, which is a small form factor computer. It is the black PC in the pictures.
As you can see it has two SATA hard drives at the top and an internal IDE HD as well as space for an IDE DVD ROM.

Shuttle XPC, Mac Mini, external HD

The Macintosh Mac Mini Core Duo is the white box with the Apple logo on top. Note the size when compared to the CD, pen, and mouse!
It is very small. It does this by using laptop components. ie 2.5″ HD, laptop DVD Burner and virtually zero space inside the case.

Shuttle XPC, Mac Mini, external HD

The box with the blue front to the right of the Mac min is an external IDE HD (@250GB)
The two boxes between the speaker and the Shuttle PC are an external DVD burner (USB/Firewire) and another external hardrive.
