WordPress agony

So first I spent many, many days trying to update my “old” WP blog, which runs on a very old version of WordPress, not allowing me to do several things I’d like to do. In the end I had to give up. Nobody seemed to be able to explain to me what the error message I keep getting means. Or maybe they thought they explained it, but I couldn’t understand it. And then what is it worth? I got as far as successfully backing up the blog and I can also see the Automatic-update plug-in on my plug-in page. And I can activate it. But when I try to do the actual update, I end up in a loop between 4-5 pages, which keep telling me to do the same thing. And I get the above mentioned error message (posted in bottom of this post).

OK, so I give up and create this new WP blog. Rather irritable because it  means a longer and less obvious name. And irritable too because I’m not usually a quitter!

The REAL agony starts now though. Because when I logged on this morning, I was made aware that yet another upgrade is now available and recommended, so I decided to do the super-easy automatic update immediately. And guess what happened? Exactly the same!

I realise that there’s something I have to do with permissions or re-naming of files. But what is it exactly?

Oh, and while I’m at it. I made the mistake of calling my tags categories. But when I wanted to revert this – which WP allows by the click of a button – I got the message that a mistake had taken place and it couldn’t be done.

I understand that others have the same or similar problems. Please help, dear WordPress-creators, who we hold in such high esteem!
