[resolved] Akismet quit working after upgrade (3 posts)

    I am getting an Akismet error message after upgrading from 2.05 to 2.1.3.

    Instead of blowing away my entire 2.05 installation, I renamed the directory containing the 2.05 install and created a new dir and put the 2.1.3 WP files in it.

    When I first ran WP from the dir where I have 2.1.3 installed, WP said it 'upgraded' the SQL db.

    Now I get this error message in the akismet error log:

    [22-Apr-2007 18:09:42] PHP Fatal error: Call to undefined function: add_action() in /home/machineg/public_html/shao/wp-content/plugins/akismet/akismet.php on line 26

    I tried removing akismet from the plugins directory and reinstalling it but this doesn't help.

    Suggestions?

    thanks :)

    I think Akismet may still be working, but I can't view nor delete the trapped spam messages.

    No linked text regarding Akismet appears when opening

    wp-admin/edit.php?page=akismet/akismet.php

    In a working installation, I see links for the following:

    * Posts
    * Pages
    * Categories
    * Comments
    * Awaiting Moderation (33)
    * Files
    * Akismet Spam (47)
    * Subscriptions
    * Email Notification
    * Backup

    When trying to open that page, this error comes up:

    Fatal error: Cannot redeclare akismet_init() (previously declared in /home/machineg/public_html/shao/wp-content/plugins/akismet/akismet.php:15) in /home/machineg/public_html/shao/wp-content/plugins/akismet/akismet.php on line 14

    aha.

    Akismet management appears at a different place in 2.1.3.

    [ /wp-admin/edit-comments.php?page=akismet-admin ]

    My bookmark for the Akismet admin point for the 2.0.5 version

    [ wp-admin/edit.php?page=akismet/akismet.php ]

    was causing the error.
