One of the facts which I’ve blogged about before, is exactly, what blogging platform I’m presently using. I subscribe more to ‘WordPress.org’, and less to ‘WordPress.com’.
This synopsis is a bit over-simplified. The actual WordPress version I have installed is the one that ships with Debian / Jessie, aka Debian 8, from the package manager. But that doesn’t mean we don’t receive security updates. I actually tend to trust the Debian Maintainers more, than WordPress.org, to keep the platform secure. They’ll downright snub features, if they find the feature poses any sort of security threat.
And in recent days, this Debian build of WordPress did receive such a routine update. The main reason I take notice of such things is, the fact that my personal WordPress installation is modified somewhat, from what the package maintainers build. This still allows me to download a modest set of plug-ins from WordPress.org, as well as one plug-in from WordPress.com.
I’m happy to say that no snarl took place, between the recent Debian-based update, and my custom-configured blogging platform. Service was never disrupted.
