Backup your WordPress site before updating to make sure you have a backup in case of any issues. If you have a hosted WordPress site, there are many options for backup and restoration. If you have your own WordPress site, you can use a backup plugin or a manual backup. Make sure to keep a backup of your site’s files, including the database and the wp-config.php file.

PRO TIP: Before updating your WordPress site, you should always backup your site in case anything goes wrong during the update process. You can backup your WordPress site by using a plugin like BackupBuddy or by manually backing up your files and database.

If you are using a hosted WordPress site, make sure to contact the hosting company to find out how to make a backup. If you are using your own WordPress site, make a backup of the files and database using a backup plugin or by copying the files to a safe location. Make a copy of the wp-config.php file so you can easily restore your site if needed.
