Automatic upgrade (2.9.1 to 2.9.2) not working (10 posts)

    I'm running WordPress 2.9.1

    When I click Upgrade Automatically the page reloads and I get this message: "Downloading update from http://wordpress.org/wordpress-2.9.2.zip."

    ...and then nothing else happens.

    Is there any way of figuring out what the problem is? I'm assuming it has something to do with the hosting configuration, but without an error I'm not sure what to look for.

    This is a site that I'm handing off to a client so I'd really like for the auto-upgrade to work.

    After the upgrade failed, I noticed that there was a file in /wp-content

    wordpress-2.tmp (0 bytes)

    If I delete that file and try again, it just comes back. If I don't delete the file and try again, it creates a new one called wordpress-21.tmp

    Any ideas?

    Also just noticed that after I get the "Downloading update from http://wordpress.org/wordpress-2.9.2.zip." message, none of the javascript-y things work on that page (expanding menus, clicking the Help tab, etc)

    I'm assuming the upgrade uses some kind of JS/AJAX type thing to complete all the steps without leaving the page. Why wouldn't the correct scripts be loaded here?

    Same problem here. I just posted something without seeing you experienced the same thing. Let's hope in a fix.

    Yes let's hope. Anyone? Just a hint maybe?

    Not all servers allow for automatic upgrading which means uploading a zipped file and unzipping it and executing it.
    You can search very long for the reasons or get an FTP program like Filezilla and do the three steps manual upgrade:

    The weird thing is I'm pretty sure I did the automatic upgrade from 2.9 to 2.9.1

    Like I said before the upgrade doesn't appear to be failing, it just stops after the first step because javascript doesn't appear to be working on the upgrade page.

    Dansich, it could be a memory problem in the server.
    You could try adding this to your wp-config.php
    define('WP_MEMORY_LIMIT', '64M'); or ask your host to raise the memory setting.

    Hi everyone? I was having trouble upgrading Automaticaly to wordpress 2.9.2.
    What I did was simple enough..
    I deactivated all my plugins and tryed again and it worked.
    I'm sure this won't work for everyone but in turn it will help some.

    regards to all Bloggers
