Upgraded my WordPress blog to 2.6.1

Had to install this Automatic WordPress Upgrader plug-in to do the dirty job… Yet it kept annoying me for a while because it failed at turning the maintenance mode on…


To fix it, I changed directories permissions to 777, cleared my FireFox cache and re-ran the plug-in again and worked like a charm… Then switched it back to its default permissions…

Hope this experience help others upgrading their blog without issues

  1. i know… it really saved me from doing the manual stuff… i just got confused about the permission issues… just set the whole blog’s folders to 777, upgrade, then switch it back to whatever the folders were…
