There are many tutorials on the web that teach you how to upgrade your WordPress theme automatically but not Manually. Today I am going to show you how to upgrade WordPress manually. After this tutorial you will never upgrade automatic again.
Log into your WordPress admin panel and look for Tools>Export (We’re backing up our database just in case something goes wrong)
Download export file
Browse for a yellow highlight at the very top of your admin panel and click please update now.
We do not want to upgrade automatically so download the new WordPress upgrade folder.
Extract Folder from .rar or .zip
Open your FTP (file transfer protocol) and go to your main directory (where WordPress files are)
Now we will delete everything except for wp-config, .htcacess and the folder wp-content
Note: Before we add the new folders into our directory delete wp-config, and wp-content
Now lets add our new files into our directory.
Ok now head back into your WordPress admin panel and refresh the page and you should see the following message.
Congratulations! You have upgraded your WordPress version without using automatic update. I hope this tutorial helped.
