Will My Site Continue to Function after the upgrade? (8 posts)

    Hello,

    I am currently running my website, http://66.147.242.162/~greenpe8/ with WordPress 3.3.2 and am tempted to upgrade to 3.5.1 but am in fear of serious compatibility issues with the site. Is there a way to test this in a "sandbox mode" or a simple way to revert to previous installations if this is a serious issue? Thanks,

    Tim

    I would probably just do the automatic upgrade for simplicity reasons. I just wanted to know if there was a way to test it first without actually affecting the site...or if there was a simple revert to the old installation.

    You can make a copy of your site and test it there. Also, check that your theme has an updated version compatible with 3.5+

    The simple revert is by having a backup as Krisna mentioned.

    OT - Hi Krishna - nice to see you :)!

    Oh ok! That makes a ton of sense now! So if I backup my site, run the installation, and if it isnt compatible I can just restore the backup?

    Theoretically yes - make sure the backup includes the database. I'd still check on the theme and any crucial plugins before you do it.

    OT: WPyogi, had a connectivity problem.
