WordPress core, themes, and plugins are constantly evolving not only with new features but also to patch known vulnerabilities as they arise. This is why if you manage your own WordPress site you will regularly see there is an option to upgrade the core, the plugin or the theme from one version to another.
With any update always comes the risk of something breaking, for someone running a WordPress business website or a more complex enhanced web application running WordPress this can be problematic and frustrating if you’re not necessarily familiar with the way WordPress code works.
Here at Square One we can provide all the solutions to counteract any errors that occur, anything from immediately reporting any downtime of a website to fully debugging the cause of any errors, where to isolate those errors and how to fix them. We bundle all of this in to our own specific WordPress Maintenance package for our own hosted clients and for no hosted WordPress users.
Daily malware scans – we check your website files daily and if anything suspicious is found we fix it straight away. If we find a vulnerability on a theme or plugin then we fix these too – as soon as updates are available.
Having comments open on your WordPress website makes your site vulnerable to automated comment spam, we will maintain any nuisance spam commenting by clearing all of the comments marked as spam that are registered on a global database and keeping your website free from spam comments.
By default, WordPress can leave lots of unused data in your database, things like autosaving of posts data as stored in the database and over time this data can build up, with regularly optimising your SQL database we will keep it running smoothly.
Our WordPress Maintenance includes
- WordPress core updates
- Themes and Plugins updates
- Debugging and fixing of any errors due to updates
