The good news about WordPress is it is open source and is backed by a community of good people who love to code. The bad news about WordPress is it is open source and bad people who also like to code love to try and hack it.WordPress is safe and secure – but only if you keep it updated the the most current version. Let your WordPress core or plugins get out of date and you open yourself up to hackers, malware, and oodles and oodles of problems.
Why Worry if One Click Upgrades Exist?
A user can easily upgrade WordPress right from within their administration dashboard. It takes only a few seconds to do the upgrade process so the average person can easily install functional and security updates themselves.
The problem with this process is plugins and themes could have conflicts with the new WordPress code (or each other) and your website or blog could begin producing errors. The best way to prevent this is to have a complete backup of your MySQL database and files before beginning that upgrade process.
With a complete backup, you have the tools necessary to debug and fix anything that might go wrong during the upgrade. Even if this means reverting back to an older version of the plugin until a proper fix is in place.
