If your site is capable of one-click updates without entering FTP credentials, then your site should be able to update from 3.7 to 3.7.1, 3.7.2, etc.

(You’ll still need to click “Update Now” for major feature releases.) See Also: Configuring Automatic Background Updates Modern versions of Word Press let you update with the click of a button.

My SQL database stuff first (because, that serves a great purpose for what I would like to do with my website). I have an application that is a form, that submits data to the database. I have highlighted a section of the code that is giving a syntax error.

To update Word Press, click the link in this message.

There are two methods for updating - the easiest is the one-click update, which will work for most people.

I try checking the page with my page that I have created, and it's blank too. However, the script it not executing as it should be I also tried echoing out $appid, and that was the only time I could get an error on the errorfinder, as an undefined variable on the line that I placed the echo code on. But since you are processing it on another page it could be useful to add a redirect, use header('Location: url'); but you cant echo anything to the screen before a header, so i suggest using sessions as well I went back to not processing on the separate page..

I really didn't need sessions for what I wanted to do.

This means if there are any issues you can restore your website.

Complete instructions to make a backup can be found in the Word Press Backups section of the Codex.You should always update Word Press to the latest version.When a new version of Word Press is available you will receive an update message in your Word Press Admin Screens.If it doesn't work, or you just prefer to be more hands-on, you can follow the manual update process.If you are updating across multiple versions, follow the procedure at Upgrading Word Press - Extended Instructions Before you get started, it's a good idea to back up your website.If the files are owned by the owner of the current process (i.e., the user under which the web server is running), and new files created by Word Press will also be owned by that user, Word Press will directly modify the files all by itself, without asking you for credentials.
