Slowly Getting Up to Speed

Well, I’ve spent the day dealing with my website and blog, trying to adjust to all the changes that have occurred since I first “paused” in my blogging. It’s been quite a week. I’ve had to deal with SSH credentials, VaultPress , UpDraft Plus, WordPress 4 and 5 and I don’t know what all… My biggest problem was that WordPress recommended that everyone update their PHP version; and then at the same time said don’t worry:

“WordPress recommends everyone update their PHP version, but this is often not possible. This is why your site is using Hardened PHP by CloudLinux. “

I’m still not entirely sure what CloudLinux is, only that WordPress didn’t like it. For awhile I was told that I couldn’t update anything because the new update, WP 5.3.2 demanded PHP vs 5, and I only had… PHP 3, I think, which for reasons I’ve already forgotten, I couldn’t seem to get. Somehow I just blundered my way through it all and finally, just when I was about to give it up — Voila! It worked! I think. I have yet to publish this post. But I no longer have scarlet warning spots scattered about my dashboard, and I have a Preview and a Publish button I can click on… Looks promising, so here I go…
