Site Maintenance! 7/18/18 *COMPLETED*
Howdy Dudes & Dudettes!
Tomorrow at 5PM PST (8PM EST), the site will be taken down. Don’t “Damn it, Dread!” me. I’ve put this off long enough. So here’s what’s going to happen.
1. DB Backup (Post rights will be temporarily revoked)
2. Website Backup (Site will stay accessible)
3. MySQL Service will be stopped (Site goes down down down….)
4. Repair the DB.
5. Restart the service, test the site. (I’ll need a few volunteers for this. Just be active around that time.)
6. If the site isn’t broken, upgrade to the latest WP Release.
7. Update all the plugins.
8. Create another Backup of SQL + Website.
9. End the Maintenance.
10. Everyone buys Dread a beer, stat.
