[resolved] Is it disruptive to site visitors whenever I update a plug-in or add a new one? (4 posts)

    I've always wondered what happens on the front end whenever I update a plug-in or install a new one. Does it bring down the site in the few moments during the install or update? Right now, I need to update a plug-in, but I hesitate to do the update when there are visitors.

  2. It depends, if the update takes a bit longer, then there's a message that says, "website is under maintenane, check back in a few minutes...."

    I've seen this at times, but usually only when the upgrade takes a while. Some plugins take only a few seconds to upgrade, so that message doesn't have time to show.
