My host admin keeps disabling one of my accounts on the server and i am told that it is getting attacked and bombarded, i have askismit running and math problems on comments and login. Now apparently there is updated for everything to fix security flaws the site is a little old but i keep running into errors whenever i update. Same as others i have had to limit upgrades on a few custom builds from errors.

Is there certain things to change to be able to take a core and theme update?

How is the website being attacked? For example is it a DDOS attack? Or are you just receiving tons of spam in your comments areas?

What sort of errors are you getting when you update?

It depends on what they are attacking.. They could be brute-forcing the login, or DDOS, there are several possibilities.

Kindest Regards,
