Keeping WordPress up to date is an important part of owing a WordPress website. Updating WordPress is relatively straight forward thing to do though having professional knowledge of the in and outs is beneficial as to minimise any issues or website downtime.

Once again when all is good and working well and without issue then proceed to update the live WordPress website.
