Pretty Painless Upgrade

That is the upgrade to Movable Type 3.3 over at my Child Abuse blog. I just extracted the downloaded zip file and uploaded the files to the site, pointed my browser to the usual login page and it prompted me to run an upgrade script and away I was. I’m looking forward to seeing more of what they’ve put into this version.

If you’re thinking of upgrading your own site, you might want to take a look at this post about what plugins are not compatible. It may affect your decision.

As always, while I think everything’s working, if you are over there and spot something that isn’t quite right, please let me know!

Update: Obviously, I spoke too soon. While all the database connections work and I can make changes to plugins, etc. I can’t post anything new! There is obviously a setting or file permission I’ve missed, but with the MT forums being off-line it’s not really easy to find a solution right now. In the meantime, anyone ever seen a “PreSave Failed” message?

Update #2: After a few failed attempts at finding a solution, I’ve rolled back to version 3.2 and done a database restore. Maybe after the forums are back I’ll research a solution and try again.
