Update to the latest version of WordPress

Picture 1

This post is for those who maintain their own WordPress site/s (or are employing someone other than myself do it for them).

Recently, I wrote an article about how to backup your WordPress site properly.  If you are not in the habit of backing up regularly, reference that post for more information about backing up and then…

When you have backed up your database, update your WordPress site to the latest version (now 2.8.5).

It is best to run the most recent version of WordPress available to keep your site running at its best.

To do this, look at the top of the page when you are logged in to your WordPress admin/backend.

If you do not have the latest version of WordPress installed, you will see a link at the top of every page to update.

If you have backed up your database, go ahead and update automatically.

If you have any questions or need help with updating your version of WordPress, send me an email or call 530-362-8586.

Here to help you make your finest dreams come true,
