Have you ever tried to do something, a simple thing, and when you do everything breaks?
That just happened to me when I was trying to do some updates in this WordPress site. Fortunately I got everything back, but for a few moments there I was kinda dumbfounded.
Fortunately I use Lynda.com for training and there is a training session on WordPress. One of the lessons concerns what happens when your WordPress site crashes.
Now I knew it was not a malicious attack, just a coding error in one of my plug-ins, still the system crashed and I had to recover and fix the breakage. I was successful because here I am, up and running again.
So when things break, as they always will, just do what I do… Have a meltdown!
Works every time.
