blogging

According to sources that blogging is introduced in late 90s. As you know; blogging is a media to give opinion, ideas, and thought also comment to an existing web page; an opportunity for visitors and readers to react or voice on the said page. What started as a single-sentence commentary has evolved into pages of personal take on just about anything and everything under the sun which is now becoming a New Internet Marketing Tool. From what I know, these are the reason:

  1. No skills are required. An average adult can read and type or at least know how to click a mouse. That way blogging is the simplest way to get your piece of the Rabbit air filter on the net. Just like writing on piece of paper, you can advertise your ideas, experiences and your stuff which expect that your readers will read and try your product. Don’t forget that you need to have Internet Connection and PC to make it online.
  2. Authentic and Genuine. Most powerful advertising is your experience. You write about your personal life or about product through your personal experience. In this day and age where advertising saturate our lives, we question the credibility of promoters’ claims. However, in blogs, real people share their real-life experiences, unscathed by paid advertising. So, blogging offers big possibility to catch more readers’ attention to try product offered.
  3. Free of Charge. Blogging is proven to be a mainstream online advertising media, most sites see it as something to augment current marketing tools and thus offer it for free. Any opportunity for free web time is definitely a bonus especially to businesses that are starting up. Needless to say, paid blog pages can generate more income for your seriously growing business.
  4. Build up Credibility and Popularity. If write, write and write and more write about particular product, like an air cleaner for mold, you will be noticed by your readers. When you provided reliable information about things, and becoming an expert, more readers will visit your site. You don’t need to be Hollywood star to be famous; by blogging you also can do that. As such, companies and professional organizations notice your growth of your readership base; they may ask you for ads in your blog, make you as affiliate and you can make money out of it.
  5. Build up your Market. Who read your blog post? Maybe your moms read your posts, but remember, your mom has a lot of friends, she will tell her friends how interesting your blog is. Her fiends also have a lot friends and your blog in the market now. Other than that you also can market your blog by using your email, subscription, joint a blog network, and provide RSS feed.

However it is, you have built such a great opportunity. Now what is your objective on your through blogging?

In this post I am going to show you ‘How to Update Your WordPress Site Manually’. Why updating WordPress installation is important?

WordPress is different from HTML websites, WordPress websites are dynamic, and not static. Having a dynamic content management system means having more content and data to look after, more often.

WordPress Is Constantly Being Updated

There are dozens of reasons why you should constantly update your WordPress installation and plugins, some of the main reasons are listed below:

  • Updating WordPress prevent hackers from injecting malicious code and to stop them from exploiting vulnerabilities that would allow people to hack into WordPress powered websites, like what happened with the page for the S366 turbo.
  • Updating the installation will fix the bugs and errors in previous versions.
  • Once updated you will get new enhancements and features that were added to the newer version.

To tackle all these issues WordPress constantly updates their system, the process of updating a WordPress site is extremely easy you can do it directly from the WordPress dashboard.

How to Update WordPress Automatically Without Using FTP

Sometimes if you are using a shared web hosting account the WordPress may not be able to update plugins and installation automatically because of the permissions defined by the hosting provider to avoid unauthorized users from accessing your account, to solve this conflict we are going to edit the WP-Config file so that you can update the plugins and installation to new versions without providing FTP details.

How to update WordPress plugins

This conflict normally occurs when the WordPress system is unable to write the /wp-content folder.

You can avoid this by changing the /wp-content folder permissions (CHMOD) to 755 which by default is set to 644, you can do that by accessing the root file through FTP.

However, I will recommend that you should try FS_Method and add a piece of code in wp-config.php file, this procedure will help you avoid any future inconvenience and it will allow auto-updates to your files.

  1. First open the ‘wp-config.php’ file

You can access this file from your WordPress root folder, the file is located inside the root folder where you have installed WordPress for instance: WordPress/wp-config.php but I would recommend that should download the WordPress installation files first from WordPress.org and then edit the wp-config file instead of editing it directly on your server.

  1. Inserting the FS_METHOD code:

define(‘FS_METHOD’,’direct’);

After you have opened your Fjallraven Kanken rucksack and logged into your console, paste the following piece of code inside the wp-config.php file, paste is below the other line of code as shown in the screenshot.

  1. Save the file and upload

Once you have added the code, save it and then upload it to the WordPress root folder on your web server, you can upload the file directly from your web hosting control panel.

A word of warning, before you update your WordPress website make sure that you back up the MySQL Database and Theme files to avoid any conflicts if you are using customized plugins or theme files because once you update the core files all the custom changes will be lost and you won’t be able to revert those changes unless you have created a backup.

I normally use CodeGuard for creating backups. However for this particular site I am using myRepono WordPress Backup Plugin they offer free trial as well and I am going to be creating a tutorial on how you can create the back up of your websites automatically using 3rd party services.

Although you can create manual backups as well but the process can be really hectic for people who don’t have any programming knowledge so I highly recommend that you should consider signing up for either one of these services.
