Project details

What we need
  • Updates and/or fixes to Organization’s existing website (e.g., bug fixes, plugin or widget integration, etc.)
  • Training for up to 3 Organization staff members on how to resolve minor issues going forward (if applicable)
Additional details

We're looking for a website developer to assess our WordPress site's readiness for MySQL 8 and then help upgrade our MySQL from version 5.7 to version 8.

What we have in place
  • We currently have a temporary Wordpress developer, which should make it easy for you to get started. We also have log in info and an organized google drive, and the ability to provide any other information you need.
How this will help
This project will save us $3,757 , allowing us to continue operating on a shoestring budget of less than $500 per year.

This project will help us keep our website running, which is the hub for all of our operations.
