Hi Everyone – Most WordPress websites auto updated their WordPress Core to WordPress version 5.5 yesterday, but the databases did NOT auto update. Therefore, when you login for the first time, you may receive a message the following message:
Database Update Required
WordPress has been updated! Before we send you on your way, we have to update your database to the newest version.
The database update process may take a little while, so please be patient.
Update WordPress DatabaseYour Website
If you receive this message, and you’re a Cyber Grapes client, this is a normal part of a WordPress Core upgrade. So go ahead and update your WordPress database. If anything goes wrong, contact us and we can recover your site from your last daily backup. (All Cyber Grapes clients have their WordPress Websites backed up daily.)
Ps. We’re asking Luke, your Webmaster, to update your databases for you today, but you may get to it before Luke does.
