Hi, there was a site that was developed by a site design company for one client. It was made with WordPress and lots of programmation. It was rejected by the client., they asked me to created a brand new site. I used Muse and widgets developed by Adobe Muse, Muse-Themes.com and MuseGain.com. As far as I know, they do not use WordPress at all. My client received an email saying "Salutations ! Your site with the address <my client web address> has been automatically updated with WordPress 4.5.7. I did not received that message, probably because I am not the owner of the site. My client is curious and they ask me, what the message means.
So, the only thing that I can think of is that somehow there is a linkage between the domain name of my client and WordPress. The domain name registration with GoDaddy but it is hosted, like all the sites that I have developed, with HostUpon. The client's domain name will also be transferred to HostUpon soon. What do you think? Thank you.
There could still be a perfectly working WP install on the server even if nobody seems to be using it. Not sure what else you are asking. Seems like a case of "the blind leading the blind" and nobody actually knowing what they are doing...
With my "common sense" I see, that the site is still hosted on/with "GoDaddy".
Like Mylenium says, there might be, of course, a working WP on their server. So as soon as this is deleted, there shouldn`t
appear emails like this anymore. Only crying, when your client leaves but nothing else .
I guess, what you think as well, as soon as the domain-name is transferred it`s done.
