Finally installed WordPress 2.0.2

It’s been quite a while, that WordPress 2.0.2 has been released. Until now I didn’t really had the nerve to update to this version, but due to my broken ankle joint, I currently have a little more time on my hands until I’m fit enough to start working again.

Anyway, I mirrored the data from the website to my local Linux box, first to have backup and second to do the actual update on the local system. Update went smoothly due to the very good instructions. After that I needed to update some plug-ins or reintroduce the changes, that one of the plug-ins required. Since I only use AuthImage, Markdown, IImage-Browser and Spam Karma 2 this wasn’t much work.

Finally I deactivated the plug-ins on the website, rsync’d the local WordPress directory to the website, ran the upgrade.php script and reactivated the plug-ins. Done.

Cudos to the WordPress developers. I guess, it’s now time to create some new theme and update the look of the site.

To create not a block, but an inline code span, use backticks:

Here is some inline `code`.
