I’ve just upgraded to WordPress 3.0.2, and this time it was a smooth and satisfactory upgrade.

The key? Make sure you have the same permissions on the directory where WordPress lives as the user under which the site is run. That way the automated upgrade runs a dream!

If you can’t do that yourself, just follow the manual upgrade instructions that are linked to when the upgrade option appears in your control panel, and be certain you have a DB backup, just in case. Good luck, though with the professional way WordPress does things, I doubt you’ll need it.
