Updating WordPress via Subversion: it works!

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:

  1. $ cd /var/www/sickbiscuit.com/blog
  2. $ svn switch http://svn.automattic.com/wordpress/tags/2.5/ .
  3. launch wp-admin/upgrade.php via web-browser

To be safe I backed up the database prior to the update and so far everything seems good, job’s a good ‘un!
