Well its taken some time, but finally managed to update 2.5(.1) – quite a while ago changed to upgrade via SVN which makes updating (usually) a dream, but not getting to 2.5.
No idea why, but the simple
svn sw http://svn.automattic.com/wordpress/tags/2.5/
Just didnt cut it,
PHP Fatal error: Cannot redeclare get_tag_feed_link() (previously declared in wp-includes/link-template.php:384) in wp-includes/feed.php on line 211
PHP Fatal error: Call to undefined function absint() in wp-includes/query.php on line 1346
etc. It seems it simply didn’t update all the files?
So back to basics, and doing a fresh install of 2.5 and installing my stuff into it (just like the first time setting up SVN) – now the working copy switches to 2.5.1 without issue!
Anyway, now have 2.5 running – quite like it, the admin is certainly more responsive, not sure of new features yet, dont tend to push WP that much.
Oh and then upgrading plugins, somewhere along the line Akismet got conflicted? Zapping it and checking it out again fixed that. Then Geopress, thought it would make sence to switch to using SVN for that, and found the/a repositoity, but that only gives me 2.4.1, whereas this suggests 2.4.3?? I guess that repro is either outdated or abandoned? Also this page is borked.
[Update: just noticed the KML output from GeoPress doesn't work - installed 2.4.3 in the end too, but seeing as I wrote the KML code, I guess its my responsibilty to fix - will work on that!]
[Update2: The correct geopress repro location is here - thanks to Andrew in comments!]
Anyway at least it now done (for now)
