Keeping my websites up to date is becoming a pain!
I have one very large HTML based website that I’m working on updating today and it’s taking forever. Yes I’m using an HTML program to do it … but it’s still pretty much manual work.
Then .. it seems like a lot of the plugins that I use on our WordPress blogs are being updated every few days … anyone that uses the All in one SEO plugin will know what I mean. LOL Not to mention the fact that there’s yet another WordPress update. At least WordPress and plugin updates have gotten a lot easier in the last year or so … but still, when you have 17 blogs to manage it’s still a lot of work.
I have one plugin that I used to love, but lately it isn’t working well on half my blogs. It’s the WordPress Database backup plugin. It sends me scheduled backups for about half my sites, but doesn’t email me the backups for the rest. Now that’s frustrating! The worst part is that I can’t find a good replacement for this plugin (even though it still works fine for manual backups).
Speaking of backups … I’m thinking of not only backing up my websites on a regular basis to my computer or a storage device, but also looking into an online backup service.
I’ve had problems in the past (long long ago) where some of my sites were hacked … so I’m a real stickler for keeping things up to date and backed up just in case something happens again.
Do you get tired of doing the constant updates on your WordPress website? (and possible any other type of CMS or HTML website) And … Do you make backup copies of your sites on a regular basis? If not – why not?
