Smooth Upgrade to WordPress 3.0.1 on GoDaddy

I went through the 3 step (2 really) wizard on GoDaddy to register to have my WordPress upgraded… I was still on 2.7.1. Since I started to use it I was concerned about upgrading. WordPress has moved pretty fast in the past and I wasn’t sure I wanted to try to keep up.

I tried to upgrade myself on a couple of occasions, but I didn’t seem to have the right permissions on the GoDaddy servers the way WordPress does the upgrades. I upgraded one time manually and that was painful… Lots of copying up and down.

But this upgrade process they kicked off just walked me up 2.8, 2.8.1, etc. up to 3.0.1! (I guess they have the right permissions to temporary files to make it work).

I’m glad they made that upgrade so painless. Thanks GoDaddy.
