I would like to update my Wordpress 2.1.2 to Wordpress 2.6. Any wisdom people would like to pass on would be appreciated.
I am planning on updating my Wordpress install and since I am upgrading, I decided it would be a wonderful time to design a new theme and update the look.
When I updated my forum version(can't remember if I did one-click or followed phpbb site instructions), the automated process moved my previous forum(ver 2) to a folder called 'forum.old.' Then the process installed the updated phpbb(ver 3) in my folder called 'forum.' I was able to access the the old version(ver 2) by pointing my browser to that 'forum.old' folder.
I assume a similar process will take place when I updated Wordpress, So, can I point visitors to the 'blog.old' folder that the install will create until I am finished tweaking a new theme? Basically, I am slightly worried about the old Wordpress install and the new Wordpress install accessing the same MySQL tables. Will that mess anything up?
