Updating wordpress

I set up a wordpress 1.2.1 site a few weeks ago, but I haven’t used it at all. Now I’m ready to use it, and 1.5 is out. Can I just delete all the 1.2.1 files (except for the MySQL database) and then install the new Wordpress 1.5 using the one-click method? I’ve read the Wordpress information, and couldn’t find any mention of what should be done for an upgrade where no information needs to be saved.

  1. Delete your WordPress files via FTP.

  2. Delete your WordPress MySQl database (Goodies/MySQL).

  3. Install WordPress v1.5 via the one-click install.

Good luck!
