If your Magento store is bring in millions a year, I highly suggest hiring an experienced Magento developer to help with the maintenance.

Thank you for that Smiley Happy

 

We are interviewing many different consultants/programmers etc.

 

What I am looking for is a checklist of all of the maintenence activities that should be done to keep the system healthy and working.

 

 

Re: What is Required To Maintain a Magento Instalation

you obviously need some good sys.admin, to manage your systems,  and a programmer.

not sure about this checklist, but you just need to make sure your servers are secure and up to date.

 

you must have log and malware scanners, and cleanup your database. like truncate log tables and archive old orders, etc

Thank you Magenx.

 

So here is what I know:

MySQL databases backed up.

Extentions Backed Up

Theme Files Backed Up

Log Scanners

Malware Scanners

Archive Old Orders

Truncate Log Tables

 

I am surprised no one in the community has ever made a checklist on what needs to be done?

 

What else needs to be done besides the above?

 

Thanks! Smiley Happy

Belong to how big of your site (traffic, product, order ...) what will decide how much of the job. You can post detail of your site and find a good magento guy to handle it for you.
