Updating WordPress

Updating WordPress

Updating WordPress is a fairly simple process, but as with any update Austin Web & Design recommends taking the necessary steps for protecting your data. A full backup of your website files and WordPress database is needed before attempting a WordPress update. These backups are a needed precaution incase anything goes wrong and you have to revert to a previous state before the attempted update.

Upgrade WordPress to the latest version

    1. Login to your WordPress admin dashboard.
    2. You can click on either the update icon towards the top-left of the screen, or the Updates link from the left-hand menu to get to the WordPress updates page.
