WordPress Security Update

As you may or may not know – WordPress released a critical security update yesterday. It’s important to run this upgrade as soon as possible. If you’re not sure what you need to do to upgrade, the best way to do it (and this goes for anytime you upgrade your WordPress install) is to first download a backup of your files (theme files, plugins, etc.), make a backup of your database (I personally like using the “wp-db-backup” plugin which allows you to do this right from within the WordPress admin) – then use the “one-click” upgrade WordPress offers.

If you’re worried about doing this yourself, get in touch with me.
