Disaster Avoided

wordpress

I avoided a near disaster the other day when I upgraded WordPress. I nearly had a stroke when I upgraded and then went to look at the site, nothing but errors. I could not understand what had gone wrong.

I remembered I have Backup Buddy so I knew I would be ok. But my mistake was my computer was running slow, so I thought a reboot was in order. After the computer came back up, I went to login into my admin area of my blog, but even that page had errors all over the place.

I admit I started to panic. I had lost this site 3 times over the past 9 years and it is a pain to start over.

So where did I go wrong? First of all I did not have a recent offsite backup. Second, I should have tested the WordPress upgrade on my local host. But I was in a hurry and took shortcuts. Big mistake.

Luckily, I knew I had some options. I could Google the errors and try to figure them out. Or I could re-install and an older version of WordPress and upload the database.

I chose to Google the errors and see what the deal was. I found out the error had to do with ini_get_all being disabled by the host. The new version of WordPress, I assume, needs to have ini_get_all enabled. The article told me where I could find the issue and solve it. I needed to get into my php.ini file and enable ini_get_all.

Luckily I had that file in my public_html folder. Some host, I assume, don’t let you have that file. So I checked the file and enabled ini_get_all and all was saved.

The problem is most bloggers are not comfortable messing with files in the cPanel. So the best thing you can do is make sure you have daily backups created and stored off-site, like on your hard drive. This will save you a ton of headaches when things go wrong and at some point they will go wrong.

The Wonderful World of PayPal

If you want more information on the Kore4 t-shirt I am wearing and how great the program is for advertising, head on over to Kore4.

As far as PayPal is concerned, it’s basically the only game in town for receiving money and paying out commissions. I am looking into others, but people trust PayPal, so until they lose the trust of more people, then that is what we are going to have to use.

Luckily, we got everything resolved. We are in their good graces again. You really have to be careful what you put on your site. Read the terms. To do that just click Legal at the bottom of all their pages and you can select what you want to read up on.

In my case, I had an old site that I basically had written off and forgotten about that had pay per click on the site. Evidently PayPal doesn’t want to be associated with pay per click. So they limited my account.

I did want PayPal asked of me and the limitations were removed. Was I worried? Heck yeah, you never know what they may do once they limit or suspend your account. It’s nerve racking. Your best bet is to make sure your site complies with the vague terms of service and usage.
