How to Update WordPress Easily

Do you know if your current version and then your website is really safe from the threat of hackers? How long has it been since you updated your version of WordPress? Unfortunately as the WordPress platform gets more and more popular, the number of security threats has also increased.

In the older versions of WordPress, hackers have discovered some holes and are starting to infiltrate this older blogs. However the people behind WordPress are always trying to keep up to date with the current threats in order to keep this wonderful application safe and secure for users like us.

If you are not sure if your current version is up to date, there is now a little message at the top of the admin panel which will alert you if you need to update. I would suggest that you do check because it is important to try to ensure that you have the current version. It means your site will be at optimum security.

If you are having doubts about whether to update, please remember that a worm virus will do more more damage to your site that an current update will do. Just do a backup by going to Tools in the admin area and then click export and save this file to your computer. If you need to re-install the backup, all that you do is: go to "Tools" once more, click on import and follow the instructions.

I would also check about your plug-ins. Sometimes they will not be compatible with the upgrade. You should upgrade the main plug-ins first if need be before proceeding with main WordPress update. Remember better to lose a plug-in than all the hard work of your site. So keep your site safe and upgrade today.
