Upgrade to Wordpress 2.5.1

Requirements: 1. WP-DBManager Plug-in. 2. Wordpress Upgrade Preflight Check Plug-in. (Optional) 3. Wordpress Instant Upgrade Plug-in.

Steps I have explained this upgrading process as simple steps. All the steps are Important. Please read carefully and work on it.

Step 1: Download and Install all the above plug-ins in your Wordpress plug-in directory. For this, extract all the 3 plug-ins in to your computer. And upload into wpcontent/plugins Directory.

Step 2: Activate all the 3 plug-ins from your Plug-ins page. For this login to your blog and go to Plugins page and activate those Plugins.

Step 3: Now go to Database and click the Back-up DB tab to Back up your database. It is necessary to backup your files. Because even after making some small mistakes, can not undone your Blog.

Step 4: Check your plug-ins with Wordpress Upgrade Preflight Check. It checks all your Plugins for compatibility with newer version of the Wordpress. If you get an error for a particular plugin, please deactivate that plugin. If you don’t want to use this plugin just deactivate all Plugins except DB Manager and Wordpress Instant Upgrade Plugin.

Step 8: Once your FTP Configuration is successfully configured you can start upgrading process. Just click the “You can Start upgrading now” link to start. (See the screenshot below)

Step 10: Now your blog is updating. Please Wait for 5 minutes or more time depends upon your internet connection. (See the screenshot below) And do not click or close that window. For testing Just open your www.domain.com in new tab or new window. If your blog is loading correctly you are updated successfully. Otherwise wait, the plug-in is updating your blog. After upgrading process is over, this plug-in will not give any message. So see the status bar of your browser. If it displays the “Done� message, just open your domain in another new tap or window.

Or

For HTTP method: If you are choosing the HTTP method instead of FTP, it will make some errors. For this just download the latest Wordpress file from Wordpress.org and rename in to latest.zip. Upload that latest.zip in to wp-content/plugins/instantupgrade/work folder. And start the upload process from the beginning using HTTP method.
