I didn’t create a post this past Monday because I was tired. Why? Because I’ve been working late nights all this week to fix an issue on my website. I can’t fix the issue so now is the time to ask for help. I’m not against that and neither should you.
When To Ask For Help
You should ask for help when you don’t know how to fix a problem. Or if you don’t know where to look to fix said problem.
In my case the problem I’m having is a configuration issue with my LiteSpeed plugin on my ecommerce website. It started after my web hosting company upgraded their servers to LiteSpeed ones. Now I can’t create new posts or pages on my WordPress installation because of some changes to my htaccess file. I’ve done my research and I tried several things but none of them work.
So it’s time to reach out for help. I started with my web application firewall to make sure that plugin wasn’t causing problems but it appears everything is setup correctly there. Now it’s time to reach out to my web hosting company to see if they can provide any assistance since they upgraded the server my website is on. If they can’t then I’ll reach out to the LiteSpeed team.
I believe it’s fine to struggle with a problem for a bit of time before you reach out to ask for help. This process teaches you how to research and find solutions on your own. Because there are going to be times when you don’t have help available immediately. Yet, when you find yourself in my position, when you tried all you can, then go ahead and ask for help. It’s not a sign of weakness nor doesn’t show you lack smarts.
