Re: Upgrading from 1.2 to 1.2.1
I learned from Andy that it’s helpful to:
1. Deactivate the buddypress plugin.
2. Backup your content (I didn’t need to, but better safe than sorry)
3. Purge the buddypress folder and its contents from the plugins folder.
4. Download the latest version. Upload the “buddypress” folder back into the plugins folder
5. Activate the plugin. Done.
It may seem like an extra step, but I’ve found it was most effective.
