Database update?


I got a message when I opened our website today that the database needed to be updated.

It’s a WordPress website.

Was that a legit request from DH or did I just hand our DB to hooligans?


It’s legit. Assuming you have the dreamhost panel set to automatically update wordpress that it installed. What happans is a new version of wordpress often needs a database update and that won’t happen until the next time an admin goes to login.

FYI… watch for the emails from the one click update installer, they advise you to visit so that can happen.


Phew - that’s a relief! Next time I’ll know - Thank you so much! :slight_smile:
