Upgrading to 2.8

Oooh wordpress 2.8! Don’t forget to disable your plugins before you upgrade, or you’ll get a blank screen like I did (caused by K2 disable widgets plugin which I shouldn’t be using anyway). If you don’t and get the blank screen, go to your wp-content folder and rename the plugins directory to something else. Then the plugins will be disabled and you can go to the web interface (after restoring the plugins folder to its previous name) and re-enable them one by one until something breaks…

Also, I use svn to get my wordpress, and you might notice that the recommended address has moved. I first did the upgrade with the old address, and then changed it with the command

svn sw --relocate http://svn.automattic.com/wordpress/tags/2.8 http://core.svn.wordpress.org/tags/2.8
