    DUDE! This setup worked great THANKS FOR this post, had no idea that this very popular AVADA theme would cause so many problems.

      You’re welcome – it’s an easy fix but it had me scratching my head for quite a while trying to figure out why Updraft had stopped working.

    Hi Dave. Thank you SO much for sharing this fix! I purchased the Layer Slider standalone plugin to use with the Divi theme after a visiting client requested a very specific vision for her home page that LayerSlider seemed to be the best choice to use. After installing it and importing demos the database crashed and I immediately had other massive technical issues that cost hours to undo…and that with a client visiting me in Oregon from Florida and leaving in a couple of days! So, no way to undo the lost time, but you helped me avoid losing any more than I had to (sure enough, it was the Use Google CDN setting that got me, too. You’d think that would be a safe option to choose!) . Now I can get to work so I will (hopefully) have something for her to see in time for our meeting tomorrow. Bless you!
