Manual Updating WordPress



  1. Get the latest WordPress zip (or tar.gz) file
  2. Unpack the zip file that you downloaded.
  3. Deactivate plugins.
  4. Delete the old wp-includes and wp-admin directories on your web host (through your FTP or shell access).
  5. Using FTP or your shell access, upload the new wp-includes and wp-admin directories to your web host, in place of the previously deleted directories.
  6. Upload the individual files from the new wp-content folder to your existing wp-content folder, overwriting existing files. Do NOT delete your existing wp-content folder. Do NOT delete any files or folders in your existing wp-content directory (except for the one being overwritten by new files).
  7. Upload all new loose files from the root directory of the new version to your existing wordpress root directory.

NOTE – you should replace all the old WordPress files with the new ones in the wp-includes and wp-admin directories and sub-directories, and in the root directory (such as index.php, wp-login.php and so on). Don’t worry – your wp-config.php will be safe.

Be careful when you come to copying the wp-content directory. You should make sure that you only copy the files from inside this directory, rather than replacing your entire wp-content directory. This is where your themes and plugins live, so you will want to keep them. If you have customized the default or classic themes without renaming them, make sure not to overwrite those files, otherwise you will lose your changes. (Though you might want to compare them for new features or fixes..)

Lastly you should take a look at the wp-config-sample.php file, to see if any new settings have been introduced that you might want to add to your own wp-config.php.

Increase Chances of Success



Did you know that you can increase chances of success by consciously choosing the right words? It’s true! Let’s say you’re motivated, excited even, to create change in your life. You’ve even gone so far as to put your well-formed goals down in writing. From there, you’ve determined your first steps to begin the process of changing your eating habits and exercising more. You’ve got enormous enthusiasm and know exactly what it is you’ re going to do. You choose your goal tomorrow, and then inadvertently cripple your success before you even start. You say, ” I’ll try.”

increase chances of success What does “I’ll try” mean? It means you’ve given yourself an out. Should some obstacle surface, you now have a built-in escape route that gets you off the hook. The word presupposes failure. It lacks intention and confidence. You are sowing doubt in your own mind. It says, “Alright, I’ll give it a go, but I can’t really see it working out.”
Now observe what is feels like to sat “I am”. For example, “I am now committed to feeling good by honoring my decision to walk 20 minutes today.” If it doesn’t feel right, then you’ve selected a goal that is something other than your natural first step. Back up and find the action step you are ready to undertake. It doesn’t matter how small and insignificant it may seem at the time. You’ re better off starting with something teeny- tiny and achieving success, than starting with something you already know you’ re not ready for. The wise Lao-Tzu once started, “A journey of a thousand miles must begin with a single step.” Make sure you are able to complete your first step.


Perhaps having revised your initial starting point, again notice what it feel like to say, “I am now”. This phrase directs you and says that you have power and intention. It says that you believe in what you are saying and you will find a way to make it happen. You’ve made a commitment to yourself that you’ve chosen to honor. It says that you will find a way to get it done even if things get in the way. It means that even if difficulties pop up, you’ll find some way to stick to your intent.

Once you find a plan of action that seems doable, forget trying to do it. To try to do something is to not do it. Instead, declare whole-heartedly, “I am now achieving this!”

Make your success inevitable.
