    WP Merge, Andy's new upload code, REQUIRES upgrading of db!

    How can I upgrade my db safely?

    Thank you.

    1. Make a backup of your DB.
    2. Check Fopen value in php.ini. For updates ist has to be set to On. If you've changed the value restart Apache. Better put it back to Off after upgrading (security...)
    3. Goto Site-Admin -> Upgrade
    4. Get yourself a coffee
