WordPress 5.2 “Jaco”

May 23, 2019

We’ve updated our base VPS images to not only include all the newest security patches for Ubuntu 18.04 LTS and PHP/MariaDB, but to also include the very latest WordPress release.

Now there are even more robust tools for identifying and fixing configuration issues and fatal errors. Whether you are a developer helping clients or you manage your site solo, these tools can help get you the right information when you need it. The new PHP Error Protection will let you safely fix or manage fatal errors without requiring developer time. It features better handling of the so-called “white screen of death,” and a way to enter recovery mode,  which pauses error-causing plugins or themes.

Existing customer installations should automatically update themselves, but if you think there is a problem with this please let us know.
