My magento site is running on version 126.96.36.199 . I don’t know how to upgrade ( I can give it a shot but I’m afraid I’ll mess things up) so I will be paying someone to do it for me. My questions: do I have to upgrade? what are the benefits? what will happen if I were to never upgrade my site? Thanks.
