Important discrepancy between WordPress Codex how to upgrade docs (3 posts)

    Hi

    So, I updated today and followed the instructions on the wordpress site. However, I noticed a discrepancy between instructions, which I think is confusing.

    If you look at this page, about database backups:

    http://codex.wordpress.org/Backing_Up_Your_Database

    Under the section about the DATA section, it says just tick the DATA box and leave all the rest unchecked.

    HOWEVER, if you look at this page:

    http://codex.wordpress.org/WordPress_Backups#Backing_Up_Your_WordPress_Site

    where it covers phpmyadmin, you will see it shows there are two tick boxes checked.

    Since this covers backing up your database, surely this is something pretty important to get right.

    So, which one is it, and can the incorrect page be changed to ensure other noobers like me don't get confused and/or make mistakes they will later regret ;)

    Sure, you can edit either page :) The codex is user-generated content.

    fwiw, I dont mess with any of those settings, and my backups, exports, and imports always work.

    My question wasn't so much a questions but rather a polite 'instruction' ;) to ask that it is changed so it has the correct info. If I knew what to change it to, I would. If someone posts here what is correct, I shall make the changes myself ;)
