Updating page

Once you are on the "Update Word Press" page, click the button "Update Now" to start the process off.You shouldn't need to do anything else and, once it's finished, you will be up-to-date. If you have any problems, it is probably related to permissions issues on the filesystem.

It is typical for the files to be owned by the FTP account that originally uploaded them.

To perform the update, you just need to fill in the connection credentials for that FTP account.

Word Press won't attempt to create the new files directly if they won't have the correct ownership.

Instead, you will be shown a dialog box asking for connection credentials.

If you only make changes that affect the publication level, update the publication only.

Certain changes in a series or other publication may also require updates to the parent community, if any, and the repository level.

Complete instructions to make a backup can be found in the Word Press Backups section of the Codex.

For Word Press 3.7 , you don’t have to lift a finger to apply minor and security updates.

When you post a new item to the repository, you are automatically prompted to run a site update, either from the quick publication queue or from the submission management area.

Administrators can also run updates at any time by clicking the update link located in the sidebar of the Configuration tab or Manage Submissions tab.

If you have made any modifications to those files, your changes will be lost.
