Hello to all my fellow bloggers and loyal blog readers.

This article is about the current update that I have done on this blog and why I did a mini relaunch.

First of all I want to start by thanking all they visitors who supported me during the time which the blog was going through a bit of bugs and also when I closed the site to do some maintenance work.

What Went Wrong With WebMaster-Success.com?

Well I started having problems when HostGator moved my site over to a new server. I had a few bugs with my WordPress admin panel.

Some of the problems are listed here below:

  • I couldn’t get to read my blog stats
  • Tons of plugins malfunctioned
  • My blog became a bit slow
  • My WordPress admin panel didn’t pick me up as the administrator of my own site
  • …and many more small errors.

I tried on numerous occasions to contact HostGator into helping me fix this problem, because it happened after they switched to a new server.

They didn’t seem to understand what I was talking about and my problem wasn’t solved.

I tried to contact other bloggers into helping me to fix it, but somehow the problem seemed like it would never be solved.

I even though of hiring a freelancer to work on fixing my blog. But I thought to myself, I know a bit of  PHP and database management… why not put my skills to the test and work at trying to fix my own blog.

What Did I Do Next?

Well last week Sunday I closed my blog for a week and decided to start working on my blog.

Was it challenging? Yes it was, because I had tried to install a new WordPress and copy over the files and database tables. But in doing so the errors were copied as well.

I had to do a new install of WordPress about 7 times before I got it right and also in coping tables from my database.

Finally my blog started to function well and it felt so wonderful to have my blog back online. I had to install my plugins again and did a few tweaks as well so as to bring the blog back to normal functionality.

I am still not out of the deep as yet, still have a few more things to work on, so please bear with me and it you do find any errors then please feel free to contact me and tell me. I will try my very best  to work on it as possible.
