Upgraded to WordPress 2.5 and How to

I really wanted to use new wordpress 2.5 version for this site since I’ve been testing RC1 release in my local. Because of new database changes, new refreshed admin panel, improved post editor (image uploading, gallery and full screen editing, etc.), ability to upgrade plugin automatically and much more in WordPress 2.5. Today, I just upgraded to WordPress 2.5 for my site and it was successful without having any problems. As my experience, I download the latest release from wordpress site, and I disabled all the plugins i’m using for my wordpres. After that I upload all the files from wordpress zip files. Then I run upgrade.php file from wp-admin folder. It upgrades automatically. Then I enable plugins again. Here are the simple steps you can upgrade wordpress 2.5 from ealier version.

Backup database first !!!

This is really important for your blog!. Backup your wordpress by using both exporting your wordpress method and downloading database files from your MySql database method.

Download the Latest Release

Download the latest release from WordPress site. And extract that zip file into your local machine.

Disable all the plugins

Go to the plugins page and mark the active plugins which are currently using for your blog. Then diactivate them.

Upload the WordPress files

Upload the WordPress files from your machine to the your site using FTP program.

Run Upgrade

type your site url and /wp-admin/upgrade.php . (example: http://www.example.com/wp-admin/upgrade.php). If you installed wordpress different from your home page, Use something like this (example: http://www.example.com/wordpress/wp-admin/upgrade.php)

Successful Upgrade

After successful upgrading, it will redirect to new interface login page.

Reactivate your plugins

You disabled your plugins before you upgrade. So you must activate them again inorder to run your wordpress without any problems.

Myo Kyaw Htun . com is one year old now

Today is my special day of Myo Kyaw Htun . com. Yes, it is one year old now. I bought this domain on March 12, 2007 and started blogging on April 10, 2007. Actually, I blogged since December, 2005 when my friend, Ravi, introduced me Blogger.com. I deleted first two blogs due to many reasons and started blogging again on Blogger/blogspot in October 2006 named it Myo Kyaw Htun – Personal Blog. I wrote about so many topics what appeared in my mind. Then I started testing wordpress in my local for couple of months before I blog in this site. I created three wordpress themes for free and blogger templates as well. My site got PR 5, was featured in WeLoveWP, was featured in noupe as 60+ Unusual WP Blog Designs under Super Clean Designs and ranked in Technorati’s Top 10K lately. I posted 90 posts including this one and 377 comments received. I have made more than $100 from Google Adsense in this year and waiting for the cheque arrived. I really thanks all of you who visited and gave comments, suggestions and opinions. I’ll change my site design soon and will create free wordpress themes, blogger templates and write more about wordpress tips in future.

Thanks you all and your supports.

Myo Kyaw Htun . com reachs into Technorati’s Top 10K

I haven’t checked my site stats in Technorati for a while. Today I found that Technorati shows Top 10K next to my site link. My site ranked in 9,368 and Technorati authority was 461 as of April 9, 2008.

Technorati Top 10K Myo Kyaw Htun .com

What do I say? Is true that my site ranks in 9,368 out of 70 millions blogs? Why my blog ranked ? The only one thing I know is that the result of my wordpress themes that has link back to my main site. And of course, backlinks and my buddies bloggers. Technorati authority and rank did not mean exactly popular blogs, you’ll understand if you read the summary from the Technorati authority post.

Technorati Authority is the number of blogs linking to a website in the last six months. The higher the number, the more Technorati Authority the blog has.

Technorati Rank is calculated based on how far you are from the top. The blog with the hightest Technorati Authority is the #1 ranked blog. The smaller your Technorati Rank, the closer you are to the top.

Anyway, I’m happy on that.
