Once you have your site up and running it is very important to keep your site up to date and secure. Both Drupal core and contributed projects continue to improve the software with bug fixes and security updates. In this chapter we look at using the core Update Manager, and explain how to read the various reports about our site's status. Before we walk through the process up updating a contributed module, as well as our version of Drupal core, we also make sure we do a backup.
