We upgraded our WordPress to 5.01 today. Hopefully this will not cause problems.
‘ Our virtual domain system for ftp is changing and it will no longer automatically change to your directory when someone logs in anonymously. They will need to cd to /home/user to get to your directory. This is in preparation for changing the ftp server from wu-ftpd which has some compatibility issues with some version of filezilla which is the most widely used ftp client on Windows systems and often Mac and Linux as well, to a newer server. Unfortunately, wu-ftpd was/is the only ftp daemon that had the capacity to automatically change directories based upon domain or IP address.
I am also changing the IP address of some of our servers. Because name service changes take some time to propagate, I will be having the servers listen to both addresses for a period of time until the changes have propagated. These changes are requiring frequent restarting of the web server so there will be brief (1-5 second) interruptions. They should not be longer unless I mistype something in the configuration files.
