New Release : WordPress 2.9.2

Let’s upgrade your wordpress to version 2.9.2. Recent versions of WordPress feature an Automatic Upgrade. You can launch the automatic upgrade by clicking the link in the new version banner (if it’s there) or by going to the Tools -> Upgrade menu. After that it should be straightforward.

Automatic Upgrades do fail sometimes, though, so remember to backup your database first, and deactivate your plugins before starting the upgrade.

Continue reading

Note that your files all need to be owned by the user under which your Apache server executes, or you will receive a dialog box asking for “connection information,” and you will find that no matter what you enter, it won’t work. If the automatic upgrade doesn’t work for you, don’t panic, just try a manual upgrade.

Download WP 2.9.2

These are the short instructions, if you want more check out the extended upgrade instructions. If you experience problems with the Three Step Upgrade, you may want to review the more detailed upgrade instructions

For these instructions, it is assumed that your blog’s URL is http://example.com/wordpress/. Note that during the upgrade process access to your blog may not work for your visitors.
A Warning before you start

If you run into problems Upgrading WordPress with the three Steps described here, you need to revert to your old version first before using the more detailed upgrade instructions (ie. restore the backup made in step 0). Even though you might not run into any errors with this process right away, you might run into problems later down the line. Then it may not be possible to revert far enough back to fix the problem without losing any recent changes.

So If you use Plugins and Themes other than the ones that come with the default WordPress installation, it is advisable to start over with the more detailed upgrade instructions.
Step 0: Before You Get Started

* Just in case something goes wrong, make sure you have a backup. WordPress Backups is a comprehensive guide.
* Make sure the database user name registered to WordPress has permission to create, modify, and delete database tables. If you installed WordPress in the standard way, and nothing has changed since then, you are fine.
* Deactivate your plugins. A plugin might not be compatible with the new version, so it’s nice to check for new versions of them and deactivate any that may cause problems. You can reactivate plugins one-by-one after the upgrade. This is particularly important when upgrading to WordPress 2.7!

Step 1: Replace WordPress files

1. Get the latest WordPress. Either download and extract it to your computer or download it directly to the server.
1. As a reminder, to extract a tar.gz to a folder use this command, replacing (folder name) with the name of your folder: tar -xvzf latest.tar.gz -C ./(folder name)
2. Delete your old wp-includes and wp-admin directories.
3. Copy the new WordPress files to your server, overwriting old files in the root, except perhaps the wp-content folder (see “NOTE” below). You may use FTP or shell commands to do so. Note that this means *all* the files, including all the files in the root directory as well. If you use the default or classic theme and have customized it, then you can skip that theme.

NOTE The wp-content folder requires special handling, as do the plugins and themes folders. You should copy over the contents of these folders, not the entire folder. In some cases, copying the entire folder may overwrite all your customizations and added content.

Also take care to preserve the content of the wp-config.php file in the root directory. This file contains current settings for your existing installation, e.g. database sign-in information. Occasionally new versions of WordPress add statements to this file. (E.g. in version 2.5 the SECRET_KEY variable was added, see Extended upgrade instructions). Compare your existing file with the new installation file which is named wp-config-sample.php. Either transfer your settings to the sample-file and rename it to wp-config.php or copy the new statements from the sample file into your current file.

Step 2: Upgrade your installation

Visit your main WordPress admin page at /wp-admin. You may be asked to login again. If a database upgrade is necessary at this point, WordPress will detect it and give you a link to a URL like http://example.com/wordpress/wp-admin/upgrade.php. Follow that link and follow the instructions. This will update your database to be compatible with the latest code. If you fail to do this step, your blog might look funny.

Step 3: Do something nice for yourself

If you have caching enabled, your changes will appear to users more immediately if you clear the cache at this point (and if you don’t, you may get confused when you see the old version number in page footers when you check to see if the upgrade worked).

Your WordPress installation is successfully upgraded. That’s as simple as we can make it without Updating WordPress Using Subversion.

Consider rewarding yourself with a blog post about the upgrade, reading that book or article you’ve been putting off, or simply sitting back for a few moments and let the world pass you by.



Akhirnya selesai juga saya me-redesign portal favorit saya, portal yang saya besarkan bersama teman-teman di komunitas digital art Jogjakarta “Jogjaforce“. Hampir kurang lebih 4 tahun portal itu bertahan dengan segala suka dan dukanya ;-).  Designdiary(DD) tidak jauh berbeda dengan portal-portal lainnya yang membedakan hanya adanya event submission untuk majalah digital yang bernama Design Flip untuk saat ini sudah mencapai edisi 4 dengan lebih dari 50 designer dari seluruh dunia yang berpartisipasi menyumbangkan karya-karya mereka. Konsep dari Designdiary adalah simpel dan open publish sehingga siapa saja boleh me re-publishnya tetapi harus mencantumkan sumbernya yaitu DD dan termasuk urlnya.

Pada versi yang ke 6 kalau boleh saya bilang, theme yang diangkat adalah simpel clean, black and white. Saya mencoba menggunkan theme dari Simple Balance 2.2 ( Blogsessive
) sebagai core / framework themenya selebihnya saya modif termasuk sisi right dan left sidebarnya. Simpel Balance saya suka karena ada beberapa fitur yang sudah ter integrasi semisal pemasangan ads image di sisi sidebar secara otomatis , feedburner rss integration dan lain sebagainya. Alur css dan code themenya saya sangat suka, ini kalau di lihat dari sisi teknis, mudah di pahami dan diuraikan membuat saya mudah memodifnya. Layout saya berkaloborasi dengan Theyhatemydesign.com “Amin”.

Detail :

- HTML, PHP, CSS, Javascripts (jQuery).

-Wordpress, Theme Blogsessive “simpel balance 2.2″.

Selamat menikmati ;-)
