    4.92 Fatal Error / Site Down – How I fixed, by vasseurb

    The auto update to 4.9.2 took down one of my websites. Going into File Manager on my hosting provider let me look at my error_log files in the root directory. These were showing a lot of initialization errors indicating

    WordPress database error Attempted to connect for 3 but failed…

    I noticed that in 4.9.2 that /includes/wp-db.php has been updated. I replaced this file with the file from version 4.9.1 and my site came back up right away.

    I believe I have some old plugins and code which are using deprecated calls and other things that should be fixed which triggered this. I have turned off automatic updates for now.

    I think wp-db.php is not doing the compatibility checks correctly and I’m hoping this gets fixed in 4.9.3. If anyone has any suggestions on what I should be looking for in my code I would be very appreciative.
