    Do I want to go ahead and update to 5.4.1 since I just updated to 5.4 yesterday? And also is it still necessary to clear the cache daily if we’ll be posting a lot? I was thinking I should clear the cache, update to 5.4.1, clear the cache again; does this sound correct? We don’t want to lose recent additions made to the website content however. Just making sure this won’t effect plug-ins, etc. Thanks for any forthcoming responses.

      Because this is a security update, you should absolutely update as soon as possible.

      As for caching, I would recommend clearing your cache after updating. It is probably unnecessary, but it wouldn’t hurt. You can always check with your caching plugin author for their advice.

      The update shouldn’t affect any plugins that are already running fine on 5.4, but if you’re worried about that, you should ask your web host about setting up a staging site for you to test the update on, which is basically just a duplicate of your real (production) site.
