    Hello friends.

    I had some bad experiences with Jetpack and many other plugins "latest" updates. Seems to be a systemic issue that plugins are released before they have undergone a rigid enough testing and quality assuraance before public release.

    The all important question for a production site is:

    [ Moderator note: portion de-capped. Please don't do that as it's like shouting and is considered to be rude. ]

    does it work? or is there any reason what so ever, that would suggest that it's a good isea to wait with updating to jetpack 2.9.2 ?? :)

    The next logic questions are:
    * which issues, if there are any
    * how do you know?
    * and if there aren't any, how do you know?
    * and finally, IF there are issues, how to know when it is REALLY safe to update, also for those of us who run a production website like a Newspaper.

    Those are good questions and this has come up before with you. Have you had any luck with setting up a non-production installation to test plugin updates before you deploy them to your site?

    Or if that's not an option for you then consider performing a full backup of all your files and database first the upgrade.


    That way you can at least roll back to a previous state if you need to. That includes plugins and database.

    Plugin authors do not plan on causing issues and I know that these authors do test (I've even report a bug to them! Cool. *drinks more coffee*).

    But if you have a concerns about for your installation then I really encourage you to setup that non production installation. That way you can test your site before any issues occur.

    I can't get Jetpack 2.9.2 an WordPress 3.82 to play nice together.

    - I cleared my browser cache and cookies.
    - I uninstalled all plugins

    I get fatal error - exceeded allowed memory size error when I add Jetpack back to the plugins directory. Is anyone else having this problem? Any suggestions on how to resolve.

  4. Like many large plugins, Jetpack does take a fair amount of memory. You need to ask your web host how to increase your PHP memory limit on your hosting account. I recommend a minimum of 64M for WordPress with any significant plugins on it.

    Jetpack has a lot of plugins in one, sort of thing. Deactivating the ones you don't need will reduce the memory footprint of it.
