Library IT Updates

WordPress Updates

Tuesday, July 16th, 2019
- All available updates were applied to auxiliary WordPress sites and libraries.c.e.  There is a Gravity Forms update available for library.c.e., but since that is really Bhavin’s domain and GF is sometimes problematic, I want to talk to him first about it.

Server Updates

Tuesday, July 16th, 2019
- All available updates were applied to servers.  Most were barely significant.  Only a few servers required a reboot, and even those I could have just restarted services.  I am in an unpleasant mood today that isn’t funny, so no jokes today.

Auxiliary WordPress Updates
