What are the critical WordPress Website Maintenance Tasks?

Regular Backups

With a regular, offsite backup of your website and its database, you’ll always have a copy of it if things go wrong and the website is lost.

Offsite and multiple backups are important. Imagine how you’d feel if all the data on the server where your website is located were corrupted and the backup has corrupted too.

What could your do? You could configure onsite backups within your web host, and offsite backups using a plugin such as updraftplus.

Or we could take care of this for you through our managed website hosting.

Keep out hackers with regular updates

To secure and protect your website, WordPress “core”, theme and plugin updates need to be applied regularly.

If you are not running the latest software versions, you are using software with security vulnerabilities. Hackers know and target these software vulnerabilities. Updates fix known vulnerabilities before you become a victim.

Ensure you have a full backup before you update any part of your website. That way, if something goes wrong, you have a copy to go back to.

What could your do? You could update your WordPress “core”, themes and plugins at least monthly and also when known software vulnerabilities exist. Don’t forget to backup first.   WPshout’s quick guide will get you started.

Monitor your site is running and available.

How do you know if your website is up and running or when is it down? Use website monitoring services. Set them to check every minute if your website is up and working. Configure the service to send an alert when your website is down.

What could your do? You could services like pingdom to monitor your website and email you alerts when things are not right.

Like your home computer, full website protection and security should include daily scanning of all files for problems and malicious software.
