Just wanted to let everyone know that the WordPress 2.5 is now available to be updated using Fantastico. I just updated KillerIncome.net in less than two minutes using Fantastico through my host’s cPanel and it was quick and painless. I’ll post a more detailed guide later, but just remember to do the following before upgrading to the latest version of WordPress via Fantastico.
1) Backup your database and all files
2) Deactivate all plugins
3) Go into your web host cpanel and click on the ‘Upgrade to WordPress 2.5 link’
4) Click the Upgrade button.
5) Re-activate your plugins
I was able to upgrade to 2.5 in less than 2 minutes and I didn’t even need to revert to the original WordPress theme. So far it looks as if the update worked and my plugins are functioning normally after being re-activated. Let me know if your update works as smoothly!
