WordPress maintenance in Florida – 4 critical maintenance tasks
WordPress is an easy way to create a website without needing too much technical knowledge. However, that doesn’t mean you won’t need to perform WordPress maintenance in Florida to keep it running smoothly.
There are many tasks you should perform to keep your website working fine. Here are four of the most important ones.
1. Change your passwords
Even if you set a strong password for your WordPress, it may be compromised without you knowing it. Hence, WordPress experts recommend that you change all your passwords regularly, including for your admin area, FTP accounts and WordPress database.
2. Create a website backup
It may not be frequent, but at the most unexpected time you could have trouble with your website. Performing regular backups allows you to restore it to a previous version and keep working from there. You can use a plugin for that end, but even at that you should do a manual backup once in a while and verify your backups are in the folder where they should be.
3. Delete drafts and trashed items
Over time, page and post drafts, unused pages, and trashed elements may accumulate in your WordPress. Although it may not seem like much, it can slow down your website. Therefore, it’s recommended that you delete these files from time to time to keep your site fast and your WordPress clean.
4. Moderate comments
Depending on the comment plugin you’re using, you’ll need to approve comments for them to show or they’ll be automatically approved. Either way, you’ll need to check frequently the comment section to approve legitimate comments or to mark spam comments as such. Once you have, you can safely delete all spam comments from your WordPress.
