If automatic upgrades of plugins or your whole WordPress installation do not work, you might need to enforce PHP 5 usage. This is fortunately very simple. In the root directory of your WordPress installation, look for a file called .htaccess. If it does not exist, create it with the following content:
AddType x-mapp-php5 .php
AddHandler x-mapp-php5 .php
If the file already exists, just append the above two lines at the end.
Thanks to Schnurpsel for this hint.

When you read this, you already know that I have moved my blog from Blogger to my personal webspace at martinklinke.com for playing around with WordPress and getting better content, structure and design than when coding everything by hand in pure and ugly HTML ;)
Today (or better tonight) I thought, OK, give it a try…
And voilà: Here’s my first blog post.
Let’s see where this leads. I have no idea how often I will add new posts, but as I said, I’ll give it a try ;)
I’m also not quite sure which kinds of topics I am going to cover here – but primarily I think it will be about software development (mostly Java EE) and possibly Eclipse and further open source projects.
