im in ur svn upgradin ur blogz

Holy freaking crap, Batman, upgrading to WordPress 2.2 was ultra simple using Subversion, and the instructions in the Codex.

In fact, being not an SVN n00b I cheated and ran:

svn sw .

on my production blog. Afterwards a quick “svn status” showed me I needed to nuke a few things in wp-includes and run “svn update”. In fact, I cheated there, too, removing the whole wp-includes directory and letting svn restore it. Freakin’ sweet. I was fully expecting to have to resort to my backup copy at some point here.

I also noted that this will be my 512th blog post, a milestone only a dork could love. Go 2^9! Right up there with the photo of my Jeep’s odometer when it went loopback. Glad I had my camera handy for that one. Whew.

Thanks y’all, and as always, thanks for reading.

  1. Thanks for this. I’ve dreaded updating wordpress since I started using. Had it updated with svn in less than 5 min. 🙂
