The last time a new version was released I decided to update my WordPress installation with Subversion with the idea being that this would make future updates easier.
Well, the good news is that this technique works
All it took was 3 simple steps:
$ cd /var/www/sickbiscuit.com/blog
$ svn switch http://svn.automattic.com/wordpress/tags/2.5/ .
To be safe I backed up the database prior to the update and so far everything seems good, job’s a good ‘un!
