WordPress 5.5.3 is currently readily available.
This upkeep launch solutions a problem presented in WordPress 5.5.2 that makes it difficult to mount WordPress on a brand-new 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, by means of one-click installers or an existing
wp-config. php data.
Previously today– in between about 15:30 and also 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 resulted from 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 now was functionally similar to 5.5.2 as no growth job had actually been begun on 5.5.3; nonetheless, the adhering to adjustments might have been made to your website:
- The default “Twenty” styles set up as component of the beta plan.
- The “Akismet” plugin set up as component of the beta plan.
These styles and also plugins were not turned on and also for that reason stay non-functional unless you mounted them formerly. It is secure to erase these functions ought to you choose not to utilize them.
If you are out 5.5.2, or have auto-updates for small launches impaired, please by hand upgrade to the 5.5.3 variation by downloading and install WordPress 5.5.3 or going to Control panel → Updates and also click “Update Currently.”
For even more technological information of the problem, we have actually posted on our Core Development blog.
Many thanks and also props!
