Updating Your Website

Updating your WordPress site, along with the theme and plugins,
is critical to keeping your site healthy and alive.
However, what do you do when updates go wrong?
Brian will share how to restore your site if an update breaks it,
and how to recover from the Whitescreen/500 error.

He will also share good update practices every site owner should be doing on a regular basis.

General networking, chit-chatting, cleanup, and head out.

Elevate closes at 9PM, so we usually head over to a local restaurant for some snacks, beverages (adult and otherwise) and more great conversation.
