I suggest that you get into a regular habit of maintaining your WordPress website, say on a Wednesday afternoon. Of course you can choose any day or time that is a bit slower for you. Use these WordPress maintenance tips to schedule tasks you need to perform. As you will notice some tasks can be scheduled ahead so you don’t have to deal with them. Others you will need to perform manually.

Performing regular maintenance and updates on your WordPress site is much more time and cost-effective than a complete rebuild after your site crashes or gets hacked. Getting in the habit of regular WordPress maintenance is not difficult, and if you do this on a regular basis it will only take you a few minutes. We recommend that you set aside a half hour a week to perform updates and maintenance on your site. Most likely it will take you less than that!
