    Hello,

    one of the WordPress 4.9.1 Requeriments is PHP 7.2, but 1&1 use PHP 7.2 Beta, so it is not recommended use this PHP version on productive versions. How can I use the last stable version of WordPress?

    Thank you and regards

      Hi Rafael,

      PHP 7.2 is not beta anymore, it’s now the latest stable release 🙂

    I just integrated cognitoforms to my wordpress but its not working properly it keep saying cognito hasn’t tested my wordpress. What does that mean?

    1. 1and1help says:

      Hi Jeff,

      seems like Cognito Forms is not yet compatible with latest WordPress versions: https://de.wordpress.org/plugins/cognito-forms/

      Last update a year ago and not officially tested with WordPress 4.9.1.

      You might consider to use an alternative form plugin.

      Best regards,

    In my 1and1 control panel my blog site shows as Standard, so I tried to follow your instructions above, but there is no “Updates” from my WordPress Dashboard so I cannot “Select Updates and click Update Now”.

    1. 1and1help says:

      Hi Ken,

      if you don’t get any update notifications in your WordPress dashboard, then you might be already on the latest version, which should be 4.9.2 since yesterday. Maybe WordPress auto-updated itself in the meantime. You should be able to see the version number in the footer of your WordPress dashboard.

      Best regards,
      Michael, 1&1
