The other day WordPress was updated with a few security patches. That is always a good thing and that was no issue at all. However some plugins might have been hurriedly distributed with updates to comply with the latest WP version.
In the past 2 days a plugin I use everyday has suddenly ceased to be reliable or useful. Which one you ask? Updraft Plus, which is something I have to use constantly to move the server from one tablet to another. In other words the only plugin I really care about is broken!
Of course I have a workaround which simply involves shutting the server down for a few minutes and then copying the entire server onto my microSD card and then moving it to the other tablet. Works fine and I guess it isn’t a bad way to end up having a 3rd good copy of the server. One on each tablet drive and the backup copy on the microSD.
The bottom line however is that after doing more than seven backups via UpDraft Plus I wasn’t able to get a viable restore no matter which machine I ran it on. I even attempted it on my primary server which is occasionally, okay rarely, used for this site.
Yes, I completely removed the plugin, reinstalled it and the results were always a failure when it got to the point of extracting the “uploads” folder which of course contains all the pictures on the site.
What the issue is I could not say, but I am hoping that there is a fix coming soon! Obviously the issue could also be on Dropbox where I store the backups, but I am 98% certain that simply isn’t the case. Ain’t software issues fun? Not really, but I shall get it fixed eventually.

That is all I have for now,
