I had been wanting to upgrade my old version of wordpress. This was the first one I set up and I had not used fantastico by then, so I could upgrade it automatically, just manually which is for me risky, playing with databases and such. I expected it to be complicated so I wanted to have all the time needed. But I am so glad to have finally decided to use the wp-automatic plugin. It worked seemlessly and without error. I was so relieved it upgraded my version to the recent one after using very old version. Thanks for the plugin.
