Worried about updating to the latest version of WordPress because it may break your site? You’re not wrong. The WordPress update backup process I show you in this video is a life-saver. Some of the comments below my recent WordPress 5.5 release video (here: https://youtu.be/O-oiCJ77bEc ) illustrate the problem.

Any time a WordPress update for WordPress core, themes or plugins is available you need to make a backup of your site first.

And when you’re working with client sites, having something go wrong when you don’t have a backup is a hair-raising, adrenaline pumping experience.

In addition to backing up and restoring your site, I also show you how to create a staging site that you can test updates on.
