Well, since I’ve been playing around with wordpress, I thought I would update it to the latest version. Mostly because I wanted to get rid of the annoying upgrade banner. So First things first
- Backup Files
mkdir wpbackup cp -r /var/www/wordpress /var/www/wpbackup
- Backup Database
mysqldump --add-drop-table -h localhost -u root -p wordpress | bzip2 -c > blog.bak.sql.bz2
- Disable Plugins. Check!
