WordPress upgrade and downgrade

  • Upgraded to WordPress 2.01
  • Added the plug-in that restores the old upload page
  • Decided the new interface was still a pain
  • Downgraded back to 1.51
  • Had fun restoring the backup database (local mysqladmin won’t restore an 800Kb file from the file upload – I ended up copy/pasting into the sql command textbox, and that worked)
  • The ‘downgrade’ script that is floating around to get your database back from 2.0 format to 1.5x format generated errors on this particular server – I had to restore from the backup I made before upgrading to 2.01
