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.

Action Required

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:

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
