DIY WordPress Maintenance

This is the exact same technique I use for my clients to maintain their sites (in the “simply” package).

Having timely updates and consistent monitoring limits your chance of getting hacked and minimizes conflicts. In addition, consistent backups ensure that your site is back up and running as quickly, and with as little cost, as possible. I suggest performing these tasks monthly at a minimum.
