Subject: The Divi themes and plugin - automatic update
Hi, I like the plug-in a lot. A thing I miss is the ability to update the Divi Builder and Divi themes automaticly. Even though we have a current licence code, the design and plug-in are not refreshed at all. However, I realize that you cannot endorse every topic or plug-in. Since the automatic update is very important for us, I would like to ask you if we can somehow help this out.
Plug-ins or third-party topics all use their own update system, which would be far too timeconsuming to let them all work with Easy Updates Manager. There was a similar issue - going to Dashboard > Updates or Select Plugs > Builder for Update would not work. Your answer was to go to Divi > Topic Options > Updates and type in your user name and your Application Programming Interface (API) code (log into your Divi account).
As soon as this was configured, I could update from anywhere - and this plug-in worked for me, too. Divi themes and plugins - updated automatically' is inactive for new answers.
Getting your WordPress and Divi website on the right track.
In order to ensure that our customers' web pages are always well maintained, we have replication pages in our staging/test server. Our web site for clients - i.e. clientname.com - is available on our server, completely visible to the population. Simultaneously we have an accurate reproduction of the website - e.g. ags.clientname.com - on our own server, often hosted in sub-domains and kept secret from the world.
The replication pages are periodically watched and updated just like the web site of the webcast. Wherever WordPress is released as a WordPress kernel, themes, or plug-in update, rather than performing the update on the Web site, we first test the new piece of code on our staging/testing page. Because of this procedure, we are able to judge whether the update is secure or not.
We will do the same update on the site if yes. Otherwise, we will correct errors, whether the update bug comes from the actual application itself, or whether an element of our website needs to be optimized by our development team to preserve the aesthetics and features of the website.
If you update a stage site before the launch site, you can verify that all parts are in order. If there is a issue within the update, you can be sure that it will only occur in a personal setting of yours and not on a publicly accessible website that could impact your customer's bottom line.
Establishing a hosting site may not be the right thing for everyone. If your customer's website is a relatively small, 3-5 page screen site, updating the site can be simple enough to keep it running for as long as you want: Maintain a nearby site backup and only update the site if it has little or no web activity.
If something goes awry during the update, you will need to restore an earlier, current copy of the site file and website databases. By the way, aside from updating, performing periodic backup of your customer's website is very important and should be done as a default process. Besides merely guarding the website from hackers, backup is critical when it comes to updating.
If something goes awry during an update, as noted above, a recently created backup will allow you to restore an earlier one. However, this way of upgrading the site and using a backup as fallback is not the way we recommend. It can work for small, 3- to 5-page screen pages, but it is certainly not enough for large, sophisticated websites with sophisticated features such as e-commerce pages, forum boards, etc.
You are strongly advised to set up a stage servers and maintain replica lives of your customers' locations. However, if certain conditions prevent you from using a site for hosting, also make sure that the scheduled update is done the right way: by backing up and upgrading at a convenient point in your life that does not impact your data-flow.
We think a hosting site is a much easier and more efficient way to do this, but we are well aware of the fact that this routing involves adding servers that take configuration and maintenance times and can cause incremental outlay. In addition, both the Swift and Turbo option provide unrestricted database and site installation, which is great for setting up a site.
For example, if some hosters restrict the number of SQL database per servers, A2's Swift and Turbo bundles do not, which means you can perform a number of installations at no additional charge.
