How to update WordPress?

Often, site owners are faced with the fact that they need to update the system of WordPress. Although it’s not a complicated process, we decided to write a little instruction for our clients who have not ordered site maintenance from us and are doing it themselves.

How to update WordPress

Here are detailed instructions for upgrading your WordPress site:

  1. Back up your website. It’s important to create a backup of your website before starting the upgrade process, in case anything goes wrong. You can use a plugin like UpdraftPlus to create a backup of your site.
  2. Deactivate all plugins. Before upgrading WordPress, it’s recommended to deactivate all plugins. This will prevent any compatibility issues that might arise during the upgrade process. To deactivate all plugins, go to Plugins > Installed Plugins and select all the plugins. Then, choose “Deactivate” from the Bulk Actions dropdown menu and click the “Apply” button.
  3. Upgrade WordPress. To upgrade WordPress, you can use the built-in updater by going to Dashboard > Updates. If the update is available, you will see a notification to update to the latest version. Click on the “Update Now” button to start the process.
  4. Update your theme and plugins. After upgrading WordPress, you should also update your theme and any plugins that are out of date. To do this, go to Appearance > Themes and click on the “Update Available” link next to your active theme. Similarly, go to Plugins > Installed Plugins and update any outdated plugins.
  5. Reactivate plugins. Once all updates have been installed, you can reactivate your plugins one by one and test your site to make sure everything is working as expected.
  6. Check for any theme or plugin conflicts. After upgrading and reactivating your plugins, it’s a good idea to check your site for any theme or plugin conflicts. If you notice any issues, try deactivating the plugin or switching to a default theme to see if the problem persists.

It’s also a good idea to regularly check for WordPress updates to keep your site secure and ensure that it’s running smoothly.

We hope these instructions (How to update WordPress?) are helpful 🙂
