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.
