  1. To whom it may concern,

    I received an e-mail from 1and1 informing me that my WordPress website, http://www.sibersci.com, needed to be updated to V4.1 Dinah. When I followed the instructions listed above, the Dashboard told me that my installation was up to date. Therefore, do I need to reinstall WordPress to update to V4.1 Dinah, or will 1and1 do the update for me automatically?

      Dear Dr. Best.
      We inform our customers of the available update and according to the install mode used (Safe Mode/Free Mode) and your own settings in WP it might be the case that your updates are done automatically. The information in your WP Dashboard is correct and no re-installation is necessary.

      Kind regards
