I've found a few threads that give an explanation on how to upgrade from version 1.6.2 to 2.3.2 and from 2.3.2 to 3.0 but nothing that explains where I can find the older version 1.6.2 and how to upgrade.

My blog is only 1 year old so the new upgrades seem to be coming fast and furious. I have yet to see any notification in the dashboard telling me my version is outdated or a button to click to upgrade.

The manual upgrade process itself seems very difficult and I am worried that I'll loose all my data and posts etc during the upgrade. Appreciate some help with this.

Still cannot find the older versions and when trying to skip to the newest version (3.3.0) upgrade it failed so I had to install my backup. Can someone please provide me with version 1.6.2? Thanks.

Hi Edi, thanks I actually just found a link on page 6 of this forum also that I didn't see before when searching. I guess I've also been going to the wrong github page as I couldn't find the link you just provided. Will try an upgrade to 1.6.2 and then try the scripts to upgrade to the current version. Thanks again.
