Description

I have been using version 2.9.1 for about two years and it look like I will continue. I spent all of last Saturday trying to update automatically with no luck. I am not alone as in searching the web for a solution there are thousands of posts trying the same thing. I decided not to try the manual update due to the complex instructions; I just don't trust that will work either. The program is great and I am happy with what I have. You mention you cannot support all website providers: I guess Go Daddy is one of those. I recommend you forget about future updates that are not accessible. Computers are suppose to take the drudgery out of life; you use the computer to add more. I
suppose I did get what I paid for.

Hello,

core.trac.wordpress.org is not the appropriate place to get help with upgrades. You should post in the support forums:

download zip file with wp 3.5, unzip "there" in the html/ folder of your site and it's done, visit site-> update database.

complex instruction? I suppose I did get what I paid for. lol,

What may seem easy to you can feel overwhelming to someone that isn't familiar with web development.

The tip I posted about updating WordPress is helpful.
