5. The Proven Maintenance Process for Updating your WordPress
Play • 12 min

Welcome to another episode of Digital Marketing Tech Talk, where host Phil Reinhardt teaches us his personal process for today’s topic: updates and maintenance within WordPress. 

Phil will explain the hierarchy of WordPress updates, illustrating which should go first and why it’s never a good idea to update them more than one at a time–manually. Save yourself some major grief behind the white screen of death and keep your website functioning optimally!

3 Key Takeaways

  • The white screen of death is avoidable! Prepare against a site-wide crash by updating in a tier-based hierarchy. 
  • If you don’t update each plugin individually, you won’t know which one created the white screen of death. Go in manually for each one.
  • It may work for a while, but using a multi-website updating program will have problems in the long term because you won’t be notified about complications.
