I installed the WordPress Automatic Upgrade Plugin, created by Keith Dsouza of Techie Buzz, and I am elated. It took me just a few minutes to install and Kablammee!!. It backed-up up my database and did all the footwork in a few steps.
I want to give a shout out to Keith for all his hard unpaid work, I appreciate it. We have a wonderful community that continues to lift the bar.
WordPress is the best and easiest to use software I have ever used it is free. What does that say about software companies?
