software update wiped the files

Hello subscribers

ron beck designs blackOn Monday, March the 9th I applied an update to our WordPress software; web publishing. Once the update was finished, I planned on continuing to work on the site.

When the update completed, it removed all the original files and created new files. In a few words or less, everything got erased. Four years of work and data, gone. As I began importing a backup file, instead of just uploading the data file, it also generated new posts for every past entry; software is not supposed to do that.

This is why you may have recently received massive amounts of emails from the site, all of which have no images because every image on the site data base was deleted by the update.

The site should be repaired | rebuilt within a week or so.

I’m very sorry for this inconvenience that was beyond my control.
