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:
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:
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 ;)
