WordPress 2.9

Sunday, May 30th, 2010

Hoy, 🙂

So I finally went throught the hassle of updating to WordPress 2.9.

I say hassle because, whereas 2.8 was content to run on archaic MySQL versions, 2.9 finally got smart and decided it needs version 5. Alas, for reasons beyond the scope of this post, this machine was still running MySQL 4.0…

I was dreading this process, as every bit of MySQL documentation out there asks us to migrate versions sequentially, rather than skip steps, and most of the versions in between have been discontinued and are no longer available.
