What should I do before I update my Joomla version, template, and extensions?

IMPORTANT: Before you update your Joomla version, template and extensions make a backup of your site. This way if there are any issues with updating, you will be able to restore your site.

We recommend the Akeeba Backup extension that you can install  on your website.  We also recommend Admin Tools as your firewall. Improving security is always a good idea to protect your site and reduce the risks of Internet attacks and viruses


If you need assistance in updating your site to Joomla's latest secure version please do not hesitate to contact us.  It will be our pleasure to help you keep your site as secure as possible.
