WordPress Upgrade

Some of the readers of my blog who are into this sort of thing know that I use the blogging software known as WordPress to publish SteveWebel.com .  Well, I upgraded to version 2.6 today using WordPress Automatic Upgrade which automatically upgrades your wordpress installation to the latest one provided by wordpress.org by just clicking on a link.  Easy, right?

Everything seemed to go smoothly, but then I couldn’t log back in to my admin page (where I write new posts and manage all the settings of the blog.)  I have to admit, with all the issues Erica is having with her blog as a result of Apple‘s problems migrating from .Mac to “MobileMe”, I became very nervous that we were both gonna be hurtin in the blogging arena.

However, after a few minutes of trouble shooting and trying a few things, I thought about resetting my browser (I’m using Apple’s Safari browser.)  I had read that one of the ‘upgrades’ in v2.6 was a new way of handling “cookies”, by resetting Safari, I would wipe out the old cookies and get a fresh start, so to speak.

Well, it worked!  Whew!  Crisis averted.


Okay, if you made it this far in this post, congratulations, you are probably the only one!
