    Please do not upgrade WordPress to the new release! It has lots of bugs in it still! I am currently restoring 19 sites from this horrible update which made all of them crash!

    Be warned!

    Not sure which bugs caused this headache of mine but it had made 19 sites crash and I only updated 19 - the others will have to wait awhile.
    Turned the screen completely white including the dashboard on all of them so im having to restore them all from backups. Luckily, ManageWP makes this easy

    could be related to PHP 7.. if you get blank pages, try first a nginx + php-fpm restart to see if it resolves the problem.

    yes official centmin.sh menu option 22 only did minor updates and wp plugin

    my own cron does the full wp core updates too - as I think it's better to have an upgrade go wrong that you can revert back from, then have a compromised wp install where you have no idea what hackers inserted malware wise (which would involve a total system wipe + reinstall) :)

    So I updated again and it created the white screen so I used nprestart and everything seems ok after that so if you do update, make sure you restart nginx + php-fpm after it

    thanks for confirmation.. i suspect it's to do with zend opcache caching and maybe setting opcache.revalidate_freq in /etc/centminmod/php.d/zendopcache.ini and maybe bug in PHP7 combined

    Code:
    ; http://php.net/manual/en/opcache.configuration.php#ini.opcache.revalidate-freq
    ; defaults to zend opcache checking every 180 seconds for PHP file changes
    ; set to zero to check every second if you are doing alot of frequent
    ; php file edits/developer work
    ; opcache.revalidate_freq=0
    opcache.revalidate_freq=180

    In my opinion, it's best to update core yourself in case situations like this arise. I deal with lots of sites daily and if I had that in place and the cron ran, I would be rushing to ( nprestart ) everyones VPS and my helpdesk would be full of tickets (y)

    my custom cron auto runs nprestart but yeah i know what you mean

    still better than compromised site that elevates to compromised server as then you'd be reloading the entire server OS and data !
