Successful Upgrade to WP 2.1

After yesterdays disaster, I was successful today in upgrading to WordPress 2.1. My site was down less than 5 minutes total. I gathered tips from a couple of different bloggers and this is step by step how to do. The bug is the Askimet plugin.

Download your complete theme.
Download any image files. (You can save your old installation as first and then pull them from there after upgrading).
Deactivate all your plugins.
Download and save any plugins that you needed to configure.
Delete Askimet totally.
Upload previously saved template and plugins.
Activate plugins and enjoy.

Yes, I vomited 4 times. But I did it. And you can, too.[tags]Word Press, WP, WordPress 2.1, Ella, WP upgrade[/tags]
