Security Patching May Cause Seconds of Downtime



Due to the recently announced security vulnerability in OpenSSL (, we will be patching servers across our platform today.

The patching will require a graceful restart of services that will result in a few seconds of downtime per site. Once your site has been patched, it will continue serving traffic as normal and will require no action on your part.

Thank you for giving us the opportunity to keep your site safe.


Update: 10:20PM CST – Our patch has successfully completed across the entire WP Engine platform.
