Well, the sweating and sleepless nights are hopefully over for a little while now. A few weeks ago, the WordPress community was informed there was a security hole in their toolset. I just recently found enough time to dig into the upgrade process and get the blog protected again. Based on my preliminary tests, this effort was completely successful and quite frankly not nearly as painful as I thought it was going to be. In fact, it probably took me longer to create the graphic for this post than it did to complete all of the tasks. Thankfully, I took the time to upgrade back in January which lined up well with the directions I had. Kudos to the WordPress team for the quality in their documentation. All of my plugins successfully migrated and my theme (the part I was dreading the most) came over without a hitch. Now I can get back to making some posts, with this one (yes, I am counting this one) I have 3 more to hit my mark.
Hopefully the script kiddies out there will keep themselves busy with Windows 7 which is coming out soon and allow me to get some sleep although it looks like I need to spend a few minutes learning this new dashboard.
