WordPress 5.5.3 is currently offered.
This upkeep launch repairs a concern presented in WordPress 5.5.2 that makes it difficult to set up WordPress on a brand-new internet site that does not have a data source link set up. This launch does not impact websites where a data source link is currently set up, for instance, through one-click installers or an existing
wp-config. php data.
Previously today– in between around 15:30 as well as 16:00 UTC– the auto-update system for WordPress upgraded some websites from variation 5.5.2 to variation 5.5.3-alpha. This auto-update was because of a mistake in the Updates API brought on by the 5.5.3 launch prep work (see more here). The 5.5.3-alpha variation at this moment was functionally similar to 5.5.2 as no growth job had actually been begun on 5.5.3; nonetheless, the complying with modifications might have been made to your website:
- The default “Twenty” styles mounted as component of the beta bundle.
- The “Akismet” plugin mounted as component of the beta bundle.
These styles as well as plugins were not turned on as well as consequently continue to be non-functional unless you mounted them formerly. It is secure to erase these attributes must you favor not to utilize them.
If you are out 5.5.2, or have auto-updates for small launches handicapped, please by hand upgrade to the 5.5.3 variation by downloading and install WordPress 5.5.3 or checking out Control panel → Updates as well as click “Update Currently.”
For even more technological information of the problem, we have actually posted on our Core Development blog.
Many thanks as well as props!
