Installing WordPress / Patching Question

  • Answered
We are considering adding a WordPress site to our domain. Is there anything we need to do other than install it using Softaculous? Also, do you automatically apply WordPress patches to the servers as they are released? We have some security concerns regarding WordPress and want to be sure patches are kept up to date.
Hello VanessaL,

Thanks for the questions. The WordPress installation is as simple as using the Softaculous installation. WordPress updates occur automatically as of version 3.7 (they're at 3.91 with 4.0 in beta). We do not apply the updates, they occur as per the WordPress software. Our systems administrators are always looking at protecting our servers, so they keep abreast of the best security practices for our hosting. If you have any further questions, please let us know.
