Simple WordPress Upgrade Using Subversion

  2007-10-28


I’ve been using subversion to update WordPress for a few minor revisions now. I simply followed the 2.2 branch and ran…

svn up

…to update my code.

Today I ran…

svn switch http://svn.automattic.com/wordpress/branches/2.3

…followed by visiting the upgrade script page and everything worked beautifully!

Anyone not using subversion to update WordPress is doing way too much work! Time to play with tags…

Now if I was really cool I’d use bzr to maintain my local code changes and plugins in my own repository… maybe later.
