WordPress and Plugin Updates
Your WordPress website is made up of a content management system which needs to be updated whenever WordPress releases an update. Because like on your phone or laptop, updates patch security flaws, bugs and offer new features. Leaving your WordPress website within pending updates is like playing with fire. The same applies to WordPress plugins and themes.
I first take a backup of your site, then set up a separate offline copy of the site, called a Staging Site, where I carry out updates one-by-one, each time checking the site to ensure nothing has been negatively affected. If all goes well then I carry out the same process on the live site, however, if something goes wrong I first resolve it on the staging site before anything is changed on live.
This way I ensure your website goes through a streamlined update process with minimal risk or downtime.
