Updating a web site
Automatic Updates Beginning with Word Press version 3.7, automatic updates for minor releases (which include things like maintenance, stability, and security enhancements) are enabled by default.
When you’ve finished uploading all new files and folders to your web host, refresh your site and click through various pages and functions to ensure that everything looks and works as expected.
If you can’t update wirelessly on your i OS device, you can update manually using i Tunes on a computer that you trust.
If your computer is using Personal Hotspot on the i OS device that you’re updating, connect your computer to a different Wi-Fi or Ethernet network before you update.
To check for available plugin and theme updates, go to Dashboard If you don’t see the notice or the update list is empty, but you know there is a new version of Word Press available, click Check Again to refresh the list.
When the update appears, click Update Now to update Word Press. When the process is complete, you’ll receive a welcome message letting you know that you’ve successfully upgraded Word Press.
If you would like more information, see the Word Press Codex or contact your web host with questions about automatic Word Press updates.
