    Dear Support,
    I am running WordPress 5.2.5 / GP Premium 1.9.1 / GeneratePress 2.2.2
    I want to update to latest version 2.4.1
    As this will be my 1st update of my production website I wonder if there is a
    how-to / best practise / cheat sheet
    how-to do. This one here https://docs.generatepress.com/article/updating-generatepress/
    does not help to much.
    I would like to know which items to check, which data to save (apart from a WP installation file and DB backup), which settings to document. I am running GeneratePress pretty simple, only used the Customizer. I am neither aware of any own coding nor of modifying theme which would rquire a child theme creation. But I am not sure what Customizer did or did not. That’s why i want to gain some security by follwoing a kind of ‘how-to’ to minimize any risk.
    Thanks for your help in advance.
    Kind regards,
    Thilo

    Hi there,

    There really isn’t anything you need to worry about during updating.

    GP Premium 1.9.1 has been released for awhile now so it’s really stable.

    All your customizer options will be saved during updating. If you haven’t modified any of the theme’s core file then you won’t notice any changes to your site after the update is done.

    We pay a lot of attention to backward compatibility.

    Let me know if this helps 🙂
