Does Pagely Handle My WordPress Updates?


We perform updates across the entire stack for our customers and relieve this headache and concern with keeping WordPress maintained, secure, and running smoothly.

What That Stack Covers

We update WordPress core, all WordPress plugins listed in the WordPress repository, custom (typically, commercial/paid) plugins with an integrated plugin update system that are not listed in the WordPress repository, Kernel updates, OS revisions, PHP, MySQL/Aurora, NGINX, and Apache (if you’re using it). We won’t touch your website’s theme, so customers will be responsible for initiating those updates.

In short, we update and manage everything that you would want us to.

Find information on Apache-NGINX vs NGINX-Only Modes for your web server configuration and which is appropriate when.

Is There Downtime During Updates?


Our core and plugin update process occurs in the background and is a non-event for users and therefore does not require any downtime.

For more info on the timing of WordPress core and plugin updates, please see:

Note: Check out our Support KB article on How Pagely Handles Updates for details around deployment of WordPress core releases and options for disabling auto-updates.
