Do you have these stored in /wp-admin/ or /wp-includes/ or in the WP
root? You should probably move them to /wp-content/ .... anything in
WP root or /wp-admin/ or /wp-includes/ is considered fair game for
deletion when upgrading WordPress.
As for my method of upgrade... I have WordPress in /wordpress/ I load
up the new version of WordPress in /wordpress-upgrade/, then I just
open up a text editor and write a bunch of "rm" and "mv" commands,
excluding /index.php, /wp-config.php, and /wp-content/, and then
That leaves a lot less downtime than you would get if you deleted
then FTP'd the stuff up there.
