    Hi all:
    I am looking to upgrading to 2.8.2 from 2.7.1 and the recommended practice is to back up the database and files.
    Is there a recommended plugin that I can download to handle this?
    Thanks,

    You can try the WordPress EZ Backup plugin.

    Did that plugin work for you? If not, there is another I can suggest.

    A friend of mine suggested this after chatting with you.

    I did some research and it seemed OK, so he was a phone call away "just in case". It worked.
    Thank you so much for your help, I am learning so much about WP, yet have much more to learn.

    That plugin was going to be my next suggestion. It's the one I use the most.

    I am currently using WP 2.6.3 and I want to upgrade to 2.8.3- do I use the WP-DBManager 2.31 or 2.40??

    WP-DBManager 2.50 For WordPress 2.8.x
    » WP-DBManager 2.40 For WordPress 2.7.x
    » WP-DBManager 2.31 For WordPress 2.1.x To 2.6.x
    » WP-DBManager 2.05 For WordPress 2.0.x
    » WP-DBManager 1.00 For WordPress 1.5.2

    For 2.6.3 you would use the 2.3.1 version of WP-DBManager. When you decide to upgrade WordPress, disable the plugin, upgrade WordPress, upgrade the plugin, and then reactivate it.
