Learn to Update with Plesk WordPress Toolkit Course
Thanks to the WordPress Toolkit Course, you can now deploy and secure your sites swiftly with our WordPress Toolkit Extension. So let’s move on the to next part – updates.
Timely updates are the most important part of security. The problem is that these take time. And if you’re managing more than one WordPress installation, they’ll take a lot of time. Hence why the WordPress Toolkit deeply focuses on keeping your WordPress websites up-to-date.
How to safely update your WordPress website
2. Before the update, WordPress Toolkit will offer to create a restore point. You can roll back to this point if something goes wrong.
3. You can then start the update.
4. And finally, verify that your website is working fine.
If something went wrong, roll back to the restore point. Otherwise, you can remove the restore point.
Important! The WordPress Toolkit creates restore points only when you manually update a single WordPress Website. So you can’t create restore points for automatic and mass updates.

Remember! When you update multiple WordPress sites at once, you can’t create restore points so you won’t be able to roll-back if something goes wrong. Hence why we strongly recommend that you create a full server backup before running the update.
