WordPress updates itself automatically. When in doubt, visit the Update page and run a manual update if required.
- [Instructor] WordPress is a software application…under constant development.…That means one of your jobs as a site owner…or an administrator is to keep WordPress itself…and any plugins and themes you have installed…updated at all times.…The most important reasons for this are to get the latest…security updates and to get the latest features.…WordPress itself, also called WordPress Core,…will auto-update any time a security patch is released.…When a new major version of WordPress ships…like 4.1 or 4.2…or 5.1 or 5.2,…you will have to manually update the application…unless your host provider does it for you…or you use a service that keeps…your installation up to date.…
That's because these major versions…usually include some feature changes…that you need to be aware of before you make that update.…But like I said any security patches or anything else…auto updates into your site without having to do anything.…To show you how all this works…I am using my locally installed demo site…instead of the demo site for the course…
