VaultPress customers will now be notified if their site is down (or can’t be reached by VaultPress) for five consecutive hours, due to an update that was just enabled yesterday.
John Ford shared the news on the VaultPress blog, along with the list of problems that could trigger an email from VaultPress. Along with standard issues like internal server errors and connection timeouts, VaultPress will also notify you if the plugin seems to be deactivated from your site, to make sure your site stays backed up and safe.
It’s possible that some self-hosted users with not-quite-hero-worthy hosting could be receiving heads-up emails from VaultPress fairly often. Do you think this gentle prodding from VaultPress could encourage users to beef up their host a bit?
