Just did a painless upgrade to WordPress 5 on live WebVideoExpert site. I’ve been running the release candidates of WP5 for a while on my local server so I knew what to expect. Here’s the process I used.

  • Turned off my caching plugin.
  • Full sitewide backup
  • Downloaded and installed the Classic editor.  Did not activate yet.
  • Clicked the WP5 update link in WordPress Updates.  Process took less than 40 sec.
  • Activated the Classic Editor in plugins.
  • Checked the site on a couple of computers.  Everything working as expected.
  • Turned Cache Plugin back on.
  • Writing this blog post confirms that Classic Editor still working.
