I have always been worried that if I upgrade my blog I'll end up trashing the whole thing.

I am currently running wordpress blog version 2.1.1 and 2.6.2 is the current version. I think I should upgrade soon. I also understand that later versions are easier to upgrade.

Is it easy/ possible to upgrade from 2.1.1 to the latest version?

Is the process hard or easy? Can I upgrade from 2.1.1 directly to 2.6.2? or do I upgrade one version at a time i.e 2.2, then 2.3 >>> 2.6?

The best thing is to have a backup of your blog.

After you can try and upgrade directly, it should not be any problem.

Remember to disable all plugins!
