Verve Studio CMS Client Administrator Guide
When you are delegated the role of Website Administrator for a Content Management System (CMS), there are several things you must be aware of. As with any software application or website, it is very important that Content Management Systems are updated on a regular basis. Not performing updates can result in both functionality and security issues. After the 30 day grace period, the Client is responsible for database backups and updates to the CMS along with any installed plugins. We can make recommendations on the frequency and depth of updates and maintenance. However to ensure performance of the CMS we strongly recommend a maintenance service contract. As a website administrator here are several items you are responsible for:
Updates and Releases: Ensuring the CMS is updated and running the latest release is your responsibility as the application administrator. In absence of a maintenance contact, we also recommend subscribing to the relevant CMS updates to be sure you are notified of new releases (WordPress, Joomla or Drupal).
Malware and Viruses: Content management websites are very complicated and your web hosting service, email setup, other web pages, hackers, scammers, etc., can generate a wide variety of problems that we have no control over. Verve Studio can assist by investigating any problems that may occur with your website and providing recommendations.
Cross-Browser Compatibility: In order to ensure consistency of design across the growing number of browsers, a site needs regular testing. Content management systems need regular monitoring and updating to ensure optimal performance across all major browsers.
Security: Hacking is a growing concern for both websites and on-line businesses. As attacks adapt and become more sophisticated, it is more important than ever to take measures to protect websites against hidden viruses and malicious software. It is important to have defenses utilizing the latest security software to prevent hackers from gaining access to your site.
Backups: It is extremely important to ensure that your information is backed up in order to avoid losing work, information and/or software. Content Management Systems should undergo regular and thorough backups so that it may be fully restored in case of loss.
Plugins: Today’s rich Internet experience is made possible because of functionality plugins. Some plugins work independently of your website’s content and ﬁles, just adding a little something special to the page. Others require modification of content and ﬁles, including changes to your database. Some plugins may become outdated and no longer work with the newest version of your website software. Plugins may need upgrading to accommodate the newer version, or become obsolete with the improvements in the website software.
Website Hosting: Hosting is necessary in order to view the website on world wide web. However, hosting servers are also prone to ‘crashes’ resulting in sites going offline from time to time. The reasons for this downtime are numerous and the fault does not always lie with the hosting company itself. There many problems with connectivity beyond their control. Downtime is highly inconvenient for any website owner and when it happens it is important to have someone on hand to help and restore your website. Contacting the hosting company directly in the event of problems can lead to lengthy and complicated email conversations as many are now unreachable by telephone. With a maintenance contract Verve Studio can assist you by liaising with the hosting company to sort out the situation as quickly as possible.
The Client may contract Verve Creative, LLC for web site maintenance services at an annual rate. Maintenance packages take the headache out of managing most of the items explained in the Client Administrator Guide because we take care of it for you.
Verve Studio CMS Maintenance Package includes: Updates Backup Core Files Backup Stored Archives Backup Media Files SPAM, Revisions and Database Cleanup Database Optimization Security Scan Plugin & Theme Installs and Updates Performance Scans Email Support
Additional Services: Any revisions, additions or redesigns the Client requests Verve Studio to perform that is not specified in this document shall be considered “additional” and will require separate agreement and payment. Verve Studio shall advise Client on any requested work that falls within these bounds. Services not considered ‘standard website maintenance’ are subject to be charged at the regular hourly rate. Should the client choose not participate in a maintenance agreement, the minimum charge for as needed maintenance is $50/hour.
