asked 2 years ago

Hi Adam

Love your YT videos! How do I updated wordpress plugin, themes safely without breaking site.

WHen I clicked update on a plugin, my whole website went white blank.
I created backup long ago and was able to hire a developer to restore old backup.

Would love a video tutorial on how to safely update plugin and themes without breaking it.

When there is an update for a plugin you can read in the second row of the info if it is compatible with the WordPress version you are using. The best safe order for the updates id first update the WordPress version then the theme and lastly the plugins. Usually, there is no problem updating a plugin but sometimes there is a chance that one plugin conflicts with another.

What must you do to be safe? Always keep a fresh backup. You should backup your site daily. There are free plugins so why not to
