  • Lax says:

    @ Bloggertalk,

    That’s true don’t use any plugin, unless it’s from good/trustful site.
    Thanks for the tips and comments dude.

    @ Houseblogger,

    Guy from Techie buzz is very talented that he is giving it for free. I guess he is not developer of it, but it seems he acquired and maintaining.

    @ Inkapoint,

    Dude everybody can’t Do manually na. How to do it manually? Just replacing the files?

  • @Lax,
    I will Do manual DB backup and then will do the upgrade. Even though this plugin is good, one big problem is that it should concentrate on .htaccess files. Suppose if the File is modified while upgrading, it will lead to many problems for your WordPress blog. I have faced such problem when using such plugins.

    Thats a awesome plug in. I use it myself. I have been advocating it since I got my hand on it. I was so impressed by it that I made a picture tutorial for it the next day I used it.

    I re released the tutorial with a little tweak recently. I feel your readers might want to see it. I am sharing the link.

    @ Inkapoint,

    Guys, its better to talk with guys before using any plugin.

    @ Agent,

    Thats awesome man. Thanks for sharing it with us!

  • Lifespy says:

    Good plugin that is man. Thanks for sharing this kind of smooth and useful things.

  • Nice plugin, make sure to always back up your database as I have had a few issues with stuff like this where I was very lucky not to lose everything!

  • Nihar says:

    Its a great plugin. I am already using it.

    Nice post.

  • I am too lazy to upgrade :lol: I hear from a lot of people that till 2.7 upgrade this great plugin was useful and then WordPress by default brought in the one click upgrade. Looks like a lot of people struggled to upgrade from 2.7 to 2.7.1 with WP new feature. What was your experience?

    Btw, I am still on 2.5.X

  • Lax says:

    @ Ajith,

    I just upgraded from 2.5 to 2.7. And not to 2.7.1!

    I felt i’m only bit lazy sitting in 2.5 still. You’re there with me :)

    I used this plugin and its matter of 10 min and just 5 to 6 click next options. The plugin does all the back ups and all..

    You can complete the whole process in 10 min easily.

    @ Daniel,

    That’s true guys…whatever may be the method, just don’t forget to backup your data.

  • Ricky says:

    Great plugin indeed.It was the first plugin that i used when i moved from my blogger blog to WordPress and I am amazed with power of wordpress.

  • Lax says:

    @ Ricky,

    That’s the reason WP is on top now. We can’t imagine a competitive s/w to WordPress.

    Thanks for your first comments here dude.
