All I did was hitting the “Update” button in my WordPress installation.

Server closed session midway during update. Installer is unable to repair or fix or continue or whatever. And I spent my precious afternoon reinstalling my website and all the content from the backup. Thank you.

And don’t come to me claiming open source is not at fault here.

Yesterday I tried to write yet another “nothing new” post, following my normal posting schedule. However, due to some reasons I completely don’t understand, I could not log into my admin dashboard. I tried everything on the login troubleshooting guide, until I reached “If everything else fails…” Luckily, it then was late, I was tired and I did not want to try anything else.

And today, everything works fine again. … WTF …

Why is software so unreliable, and why does software these days fails so silently and so elusively?
