Can someone tell me the best steps to follow to manually upgrade Wordpress 2.9.x to 3.x. I would have sworn I saw this listed on a thread before but I have just spend about a hour looking for it and cant find it.

Thanks for that link on the WP site. It think there is also some details on this site with specifics if using the theme Ata. Or maybe I am dreaming. I will keep looking a little more for it. I thing JuggleDad posted it...maybe he will see this post and remember something about it. Or maybe I am really dreaming.

OSX 10.11.5 WP 4.x Atahualpa(all) Safari, Firefox, Chrome
Are you think about this?
HOWTO: upgrade Atahualpa to a new version http://forum.bytesforall.com/showthread.php?t=8520

Manually upgrading wordpress is easy.
1) do a backup of the database
2) do a backup of the wp-content folder
3) in the wordpress root, delete all files and folders except the wp-content folder and the file wp-config.php
4) download the latest wordpress zip to your computer and unzip it
5) upload everything BUT the wp-content folder
6) go to http://your domain.com/wp-admin and follow the directions
That's it

Thanks Juggledad...yes, I found the link about the ata upgrade before posting this question. Maybe I am just dreaming. Maybe there wasnt anything else special to do with the WP upgrade.

Thanks both of you for your input.
