2.13.1.2.8. Updating WordPress engine files

The easiest way to update WordPress is through admin panel of the site itself... When a new version is available, a corresponding notification is displayed at the top of the admin panel:

To update WordPress through the site admin panel, do the following:

  1. Discover site admin panel.
  2. In section "Updates»Click«Update now»:
  3. Wait for the operation to complete. During the update, the site will automatically be put into maintenance mode. During the update process, a new version of WordPress will be downloaded and installed, and installed plugins will be disabled and enabled.
  4. Update installed plugins, themes and translations.
  5. Check the site is working.
Updating with the official WP-CLI console utility can come in handy if WordPress files are damaged or infected.

To update WordPress using WP-CLI, do the following:

  1. Start kernel updates by running the command:
    wp core download --skip-content --force --path=/home/name_account/example.com/www/
    • Instead wp indicate aliascreated during the installation in step 5, or the path to the installed file wp-cli.phar.
    • Instead name_account substitute hosting account namein which the actions are performed.
    • Instead example.com/www specify the path to the files of the required site.
    • Key skip-content indicates skipping downloading of standard themes and plugins. If you also need to install them, remove it from the command.
  2. Wait for the message about successful loading to appear:
    Success: WordPress downloaded.
  3. Check the site is working.
