I am new to blogging and am trying to upgrade to the latest Wordpress using the automatic update function. On the “Connection information” screen, it asks for hostname, username and password. I must be putting in the wrong hostname because it keeps rejecting me. I am using the hostname that appears under my SQL database on DreamHost (mysql.domainname. com). Is this not correct? Help is greatly appreciated! Thanks.
Is this an Advanced One Click install on a fully hosted domain? (i.e. are you paying for hosting here?)
When I do my WordPress updates, either via the panel here, or from wp-admin, it never asks for such information.
I’m not sure–how do I find out if it is an advanced on-click install? It’s on my blog. I am paying for hosting from DreamHost.
Did you use Panel to install WP, or did you upload the files yourself?

See if your site is listed there.

I’m guessing it’s an Easy Install, in which case, Support should be updating to the latest version pretty soon. You’ll just have to wait a bit for them to catch up.
Indeed, Wordpress 2.9.2 should be showing up on our Easy One-Clicks around tomorrow morning.
