How Do I Update WordPress?

Run a full backups of your website using the backup plugin you have installed -or- using the backup feature your web host provides.

Ideally you test major functions – like ecommerce, elearning, membership functionality on a staging server first. If you site is “heavily” customized, you should also test in a staging environgment first.

Perform your updates in the order of WordPress – Theme(s) – Plugin(s). Ideally you are making note of the before and after versions.

After completed, perform a visual inspection of your site and test critical functionality that may have been affected – contact forms, subscription buttons, purchasing etc.
