I sent a service ticket to SiteGround this morning, hoping that the problem is something that can be fixed without getting a server backup restore. They charge for that. Paying is not an issue; I just want it to be a last resort. Depending on how serious they take it, I may hear back on it today but more likely tomorrow.
Update: To paraphrase Vinnie: "I FIXED IT! I updated! Erect a statue! Give me a guy to kiss!"
Though I do promise not to let the ego swell for the next six months.
There is a new renaissance festival in Louisiana! Check out the Acadiana Medieval Faire at: http://www.acadianafaire.org/
