Dear WP Pusher users, I know this sucks.
Since day 1 of WP Pusher, I have used a service called WP Updates to handle automatic updates. It’s a service by Dev7Studios – or at least it was. Last month, the worst thing happened. WP Updates was down and according to Dev7Studios it wasn’t their responsibility anymore since they sold the site to someone else – someone they weren’t allowed to name. After a few days someone managed to get the site online again, but I haven’t been able to access it since. Apparently, there’s no way to resolve this, since Dev7Studios won’t disclose who the new owners are.
Months back, I worked on something called WP Shipper, which does many of the same things WP Updates does – including automatic updates of WordPress plugins. I decided to launch a light version of WP Shipper, now that I desperately need it for WP Pusher.
In order to receive future WP Pusher updates, you need to manually update the plugin – which sucks. I know. Here’s what you need to do in order to preserve your WP Pusher data when you update:
- Delete WP Pusher by manually deleting it from your server. If you use the WordPress delete functionality, it will wipe all your WP Pusher data.
- Install the latest version of WP Pusher from the zipball, by uploading it in WP admin. If you haven’t received an email with a direct link, you can re-download from wppusher.com.
From then on, updates will be served by me from my server – and not from a 3rd party service that can suddenly decide to abandon ship.
I’m so sorry about this. I know exactly how much it sucks and I promise to do everything I can to prevent that something similar should happen in the future.
Thank you for your understanding and thank you for using WP Pusher.
