Maintenance Plans


What upgrades are run?

Any core Joomla upgrade will be run within 72 hours of release.  We do testing of new releases on a test site first to ensure there are no bugs in them.

We also upgrade all 3rd party extensions on your site.  As part of maintenance, we install several additional tools on your site like JCE Editor, Akeeba Backup, AdminTools, JW All Videos, and the many of the NoNumbers extensions.

Every month you will receive an emailed rollup of all software on your site that has been upgraded during that month.

What kind of website backups do you run?

We run weekly backups using Akeeba Backup and store them on your server and in our company Dropbox.  We can also upload them directly to your Dropbox or Amazon S3 if you prefer.

What type of work do support tickets cover?

The tickets cover a wide range; from content updates to Joomla configuration and CSS customization. We will also fix many hosting problems. Usually you will not get outside the scope unless you want to add new functionality that requires additional software licenses, need PHP customization to the source code, or exceed your hours for the month (then we give you a choice to put on hold till the following month or just add additional hours to the current month).

How do I cancel my maintenance plan?

To cancel a plan, submit a ticket to us at requesting your plan be canceled at least 2 weeks notice prior to the . You can also switch to a different plan should that fit your needs better. At the end of your last paid month, YellowWebMonkey will no longer update any aspect of your site.

Please note that once you cancel maintenance, YellowWebMonkey may not be available to make any future changes or updates to your site. Since we prioritize maintenance clients and development projects first, we rarely take on separate freelance projects because of our project load.

Do maintenance minutes roll over?

No, minutes do not roll over from one cycle to the next; however, we have do allow for overages.If you sign up for the standard plan which has 120 minutes and you authorize overages you would be billed at the end of the cycle for any time that exceeds 120 minutes.  If you do not authorize overages your ticket would be put on hold until the next maintenance cycle when your minutes refresh.


You sign up for the standard plan which has 120 minutes and you have overages

  • Option 1  You authorize overages you would be billed at the end of the cycle for any time that exceeds 120 minutes at $75/per hour.  
  • Option 2  You DO NOT authorize overages your ticket would be closed to account for the time used that cycle.  When the next cycle starts the ticket will be reopened and we would resume where we left off.
 you authorize overages you would be billed at the end of the cycle for any time that exceeds 120 minutes.  

Will you answer my questions as part of maintenance?

The maintenance includes a 1 hour one on one Webex training session that is specifically for any questions/training you have. You may also attend the twice monthly group training sessions we do (those are open to any of our past clients and ask are informal question/answer). The calendar for the group sessions is available at
