How do I update WordPress?

Updating WordPress is easy, but you should put some time on groundwork in case something goes wrong.

  • Make sure that your theme is compatible with WordPress version you intend to update.
  • Checks that your plugins are compatible with the new WordPress version
  • Take backup of files and database, either manually or by eg. Duplicator
  • Ensure that your backup works, either in a subdomain or folder, or locally on your computer with eg MAMP.
  • Run the update of WordPress.

The actual update takes care of you from the WordPress “ Backend “. You see link directly logged in, and after clicking on it, just follow the instructions. After clicking the link, you get a reminder that you should backup your database. Screen Shot 2014-11-05 at 10.36.51 AM

If you have not made any modifications in your plugins and verified that they new versions are compatible with each click on the “Updates” in the left menu, located under the “Panel” in WordPress “backend”. check the box for Select All and click the Update extensions. Once you’ve done all this, it’s time to go to your home page, then the page your visitor sees, click around and check that all functions are in order. Screen Shot 2014-11-05 at 10.59.25 AM
