UPDATE: 6.4 has been released on the Pressable platform as of 21:00UTC, November 7th. WordPress 6.3.2 has been removed on the Pressable platform as of 16:00UTC, December 5th.
As always, we will have it available for you on the release day. On this day, all sites running WordPress 6.3.2 will be updated to WordPress 6.4 unless you change your site to use the Previous Version within the MyPressable Control Panel:
If your site is set to Latest Version instead (see screenshot above), it will automatically be updated to 6.4 when released.
How can I help ensure updates go smoothly for my site(s)?
The biggest thing you can do is keep your theme and plugins updated to the latest versions. The vast majority of the time when we see WordPress update issues, they’re caused by themes or plugins not being on their most recent versions.
Please make sure that you first test theme and plugin updates in a staging environment before making the updates on your production site, or at the very least make sure you take an on demand backup before updating your production site.
Can I test version 6.4 before it’s released?
Yes, you can! We encourage you to familiarize yourself with the update by testing your sites with WordPress 6.4 beta release, which is now available in your MyPressable Control Panel.
We also highly recommend testing your updates in a staging environment before going live with the core update on your production site.
Can I go back to the previous WordPress version if 6.4 causes issues with my site?
Yes, you can, but the previous version – 6.3.2 – will only be available on Pressable until December 5, 2023. If you move back to version 6.3.2, any sites running that version will be automatically updated to WordPress 6.4, the current stable version, on December 5, 2023.
To complete the version downgrade on your production site, simply log into your MyPressable Control Panel, go to the site’s details, and in the Overview tab, change the WordPress version from Current Stable Version to Previous Version:
To give your sites the best security and performance, we still strongly recommend upgrading your site to the Current Stable Version option of WordPress as soon as possible. Don’t wait until the site is auto-updated on December 5, 2023.
If the update causes issues, where can I see specific details of the problem?
We make reviewing the PHP Error logs for your site as easy as possible, and you can learn more about how to view them within your site’s my.pressable.com panel here:
You will want to check for Status Code – Fatal Error as that should outline the error and cause:
