Continuing Your E-Commerce Site with Drupal 7 & Ubercart: 1 - How to Update Drupal

To begin this Drupal video tutorial series on continuing to build your e-commerce site using Drupal and Ubercart, I show you how to update your Drupal site - something I should have covered off before we went live in the first series.

In this tutorial, we begin by putting the site in maintenance mode and then I walk you through three different update methods: updating your site via the website itself using the Update Manager module, manually updating the site by uploading a new version of Drupal core and finally we take a look at Drush and how it can be used to update your Drupal site. Although I mention it a few times in the tutorial, I can't stress enough that you should back up your database and all site files before beginning an update.
