Support » Installing WordPress » Are WordPress releases cumulative?

  • Resolved Christopher


    It seems like many people are having issues with 3.1.3. I will most likely wait for the next release (e.g., 3.1.4 or 3.2.0) before upgrading.

    My question is this: Is each release cumulative? In other words, can I upgrade to 3.1.4 directly from 3.1.1? Or would I have to first upgrade to 3.1.2 followed by 3.1.3 then 3.1.4?

    Thanks in advance for your help.

    Bro. Chris

    There are very few problems with 3.1.3. It’s a security update, so it is advised to update.

    Updates are cumulative, so you can – and the auto update will – go from 3.1.1 to 3.1.4.

    And there shouldn’t be problems unless you’re trying to go from 2.5 or older to the anything in the 3’s; in that case, an incremental update is advised.

    Thanks! I appreciate the quick response.
