Oh dear, my MySQL database didn’t restart overnight! This caused an 8 hour downtime.
However, it is OK again now, and I’ve updated the system MySQL setup to, hopefully, prevent this happening in the future.
Apologies for any inconvenience caused.

My blog server runs WordPress software, which I can update hourly while the server is running, if necessary. However, the underlying Apache, PHP and MySQL software requires server downtime to update, so I have scheduled their updating to take place in the evening (UK time) of Tuesday 17 July 2018. I am hoping it will only take 1-2 hours to complete, but, having never done this big an update before, I can’t be more precise.
