updating WordPress 3.5.1 to 3.7.1 (5 posts)

    Hello,
    I just need a little help in understanding the WP update process. My theme is Viroshop and I have been told that it is compatible with WP 3.7.1. I have verified that my plugins are also compatible.

    Can I use the One-click to update my current version of WP 3.5.1 to WP 3.7.1 or do I need to update each version separately? Also, when using the one-click update do I need to disable all my plugins including the WooCommerece plugin?

    I do have a current backup with BlueHost.

    Thanks for all your help,
    Debra Jean

    Can I use the One-click to update my current version of WP 3.5.1 to WP 3.7.1

    Yes, you can - if you update now. As soon as WordPress is updated to 3.8, you'll need to carry out a series of smaller manual upgrades as we do not recommend using the 1-click updater when updating more than 2 major versions.

    do I need to disable all my plugins including the WooCommerece plugin?

    It's not essential but might be a goo idea if you are nor sure if all of your plugins are compatible with WP 3.7.1. Do, however, make sure that you backup your database before upgrading.

    All updates done. Thanks.
    I also have a website that needs to be updated from WordPress v 3.4.2 to 3.7.1. I take it that is more than 2 major versions or can I still use the one-click button?

    Glad to hear that the first update was a success. :-)

    I'd advise a series of manual upgrades for the second site. See Upgrading_WordPress_Extended for the full details.
