Because CiviCRM is a complex software application, there's an ongoing need to keep it up-to-date in order to take advantage of security fixes, new features, and revisions made necessary by changes to outside software services, hosting environments, and web browsers.
CiviCRM core, extensions, and themes require manual updates, and CiviCRM core updates require specialized skills. All updates should follow a full backup to permit rollback, as occasionally an update may cause problems or even render the website inoperable.
We offer a fixed-price CiviCRM software maintenance option for our WordPress or Drupal maintenance service to apply core, extension, and theme updates for your website safely and automatically as often as is necessary. We can also do these on demand at an hourly rate. Contact us for details.
