Blog Updated to WordPress v5.5

I just updated my blog to WordPress v5.5 which contains a number of feature updates and the usual security and bug fixes. As always, I backed up my files and database first. I have automatic updates disabled so I can do this beforehand. As I usually do, I updated the local copy on my PC before updating the blog here.

The Twenty Twelve theme I use was also updated to version 3.2. I only needed to make one change in my child theme’s header.php file to match the updates. So far, the update seems to have gone fine. 🙂

Websites Being Moved to New Server on July 3rd

I got an email from Surpass Hosting stating that on July 3rd, 2020 they are moving my websites onto a new server which will have new Hostname and DNS information. So, it’s quite possible that from 9:00 PM central on July 3rd through 7:00 AM on July 4th my sites are down. They might also be acting up throughout the 4th depending how things go and when I can check things. I will be backing up all my databases and stuff before this happens.

Even though the only ones that might notice anything is my parents, I thought I should go ahead and mention something just in case. 🙂

Blog Updated to WordPress v5.4

I just updated my blog to WordPress v5.4 which contains various feature updates and fixes. As always, I backed up my files and database first. I have automatic updates disabled so I can do this beforehand. As I usually do, I updated the local copy on my PC before updating my blog here.

This did include an update to the Twenty Twelve theme, so I updated the necessary parts in my child theme using file comparison tools. The update seems to have gone fine so far. 🙂
