How many lifetime people spend to administrate their software. Upgrading, updating, patches, bug-fixes etc. Also in case of WordPress new Versions arise pretty often, and it’s recommended to upgrade, cause several security relevant fixes or some very cool features you was long time waiting for, might be included in next release. I’m not kidding with security after i was hacked.

But updating of WordPress means download, backup, copy files per FTP and maybe backuping old files. And it get’s terrible, when you have to manage several sites.

But the lazy way exists too! And you need just two plug-ins, which can make you life really easier and secure, cause you don’t need to adjourn such important tasks.

Here are needed Plug-Ins:

After installing these two you can start with the upgrading of your blog.

Backup

First use backup Plug-in to secure your DB cause ever update can brake your WordPress for several reasons. Presented Backup Plug-In is really handy. Yo can select where to save the backup file, or whether it should be send per mail.

Update

Updating with instant update Plug-In is easy too. It can be really done with one click, how promissed in the caption and in the Plug-In description. There is one option to choose wheter to upgrade to latest version, or some other version of your wish. And if everything went fine, you will see something like this:

“Everything went smooth. Have fun with your new WordPress version!”

Don’t forget to check your WordPress carefully after upgrading. In case of my blogs the instant upgrade with these blogs has produced no errors. I have done upgrades form 2.2 and 2.2 version to 2.3.1 no troubles so far.
