Support » Fixing WordPress » Updating from Version 4.6.11?

  • I am about to work with a non-profit client whose site is on version 4.6.11. Are there any risks in updating to the latest version? Will any content be affected? They have a ton of pages… I will backup first, but anything I should be aware of? Just being cautious. Thank you!

  • Generally, with WordPress, updates don’t cause a problem, but rarely (for me) there is a problem due to some plugin capability or compatibility. In that case, you would need to figure out the problem based on the error messages.

    If you create a backup of the site plus the database, you can reverse the upgrade if you need to, but that requires manually importing the database and copying the original files to the web server.

    If you’re host has staging, then you can create a stage site from live site, do the updates and if everything is OK, migrate staging back to live. Not all hosts have this feature but it sure is nice for something like you’re doing.

    Thank you so much! Luckily I will be able to do staging!

    Lucky you 🙂
