I was asked lately to write a How-To for people that were still running B2. so here it is, have fun.

1. backup database
2. rename the b2 tables to have the same names as wp tables
3. edit config details in the config file for the wp-072 version
4. delete ALL b2 files from the server
5. upload new wp-072 files
6. upgrade
7. backup database and site
8. delete ALL blog files from the server
9. edit config details in the config file for the wp-1.0.2 version
10. upload wp-1.0.2-blakey files
11. upgrade
12. backup database and site
13. delete all those
14. edit config details in the config file for the wp 1.2.1 version
15. upload wp 1.2.1 files
16. upgrade
17. backup database and site
18. delete files
19. edit config details in the config file for the 1.5.1.2 version
