Hi Sq,

The only thing I can think to tell you is to make sure you have absolutely everything backed up before going ahead with the upgrade. The upgrade procedure itself is fairly simple so you probably won’t run into any problems there.

Cheers, Nathan

Hi Nathan,

Ok.. yeah.. Im currently making a FTP backup just in case.. Exporting the Wordpress DB should be fine right?

Thanks so much! :D

After ftp backup to backup your file, don’t forget to backup your database. I usually backup my database using Export function at PhpMyAdmin.
