WordPress developers are updating and improving the code and functions within WordPress themes all the time. Most of these updates are free and some are critical for security and speed. You need to keep your entire website updated for optimum functionality at all times. Please note that NO website is 100% secure… but you can do things to keep it as secure as possible.
If not updated problems and severe security issues can arise on your website – especially if there is an incompatibility between one bit of code and another. Be aware… this can happen!
What does this mean? It means that if you perform an update your website may suddenly not work properly and you need to know how to put it right.
There are two parts to backing up your WordPress site: Database and Files. You need to back up the entire site, and you need to back up your WordPress database.
Your WordPress files and database contains every post, every comment, every link and all the functionality you have on your site. If your database gets erased or corrupted, you stand to lose everything you have built and written.
