wordpress maintenance


A relatively smooth maintenance update cycle on June 4th. All client websites updated with very little issues found and the few small issues were resolved quickly without any downtime or causing issues for website users. Woocommerce had a security release so we prioritized this update during the process and we highly recommend updating all Woocommerce websites as this is a high risk security threat.
