Earlier in the month, I talked about how it is important to always update to the latest version of your blog software. The reason for this is because there are a bunch of very mean, cruel people out there who would love to just destroy everything you have worked for. Why? I haven’t the faintest idea. However, one of the things most people are always afraid of is messing up when they update. Blogging is easy; however, the technical aspect of it is not the easiest.
That’s why there is now a plug-in that allows you to automatically update your blog without fear of messing things up. Basically, you install the plug-in like you would with any other plug-in that you use, and then it starts to do its job in updating your blog, if you need it, to the latest version. This is really great because I normally had to pay my friend $5.00 per blog to update it and if I was ever going to start opening more blogs like I intended, this would really become costly. Now I can use this service to get it done.
All you need to do is install it and then it takes care of everything from disabling all your current plug-ins, to backing up your database, to putting the site in maintenance mode and everything else. It’s really a wonderful plug-in and once I am done with this post, I intend on installing it myself so that I can update my blog without having to freak out about messing something up. For those that are not amazing with updating blogs and all of that, this is for you. If you’re good at it, then…Have fun!
