Database Update Required (9 posts)

    Hi,

    I am a Web Hosting Reseller and My host recently migrated my account to another Server as I requested it, but since this move I had problems with my WordPress.

    I try to login administrator panel /wp-admin, but when I enter username and password, nothing happens when I press login and the page is automatically redirected to '/wp-login.php?redirect_to=.....'.

    After this saga I backuped up my database using phpAdmin and themes and plugins folder and deleted all existing installations. After this I installed a fresh copy of WordPress using Softaculous and then upload my themes folder, everyhing went well until I imported my backup database to the new installation and I was prompted when navigating to 'wp-admin' the following message appeared:

    Database Update Required
    
    WordPress has been updated! Before we send you on your way, we have to update your database to the newest version.
    
    The update process may take a little while, so please be patient.
    
    Update WordPress Database

    So I clicked 'Update WordPress Database' and I receive the following message afterwards

    Update Complete
    
    Your WordPress database has been successfully updated!
    
    Continue

    I clicked Continue and I'm back to square one, Re-directional Admin Panel.

    Please I am desperate to resolve this issue, So I would appreciate all help possible.

    Many Thanks

    I've seem to fix the 'Database Update' prompt by syncing both database and php file to the right wp version number.

    However I still can't login and redirect is still there, here is an image:

    Try:
    - switching to the Twenty Ten theme by renaming your current theme's folder in wp-content/themes using FTP or whatever file management application your host provides.

    - resetting the plugins folder by FTP or phpMyAdmin.

    Thanks for your reply. This method worked for me, but I believe it's a temporary solution. Could you advise me on what to do next? Since I have switched to Twenty Ten theme which is working flawlessly, it seems that my theme files are not functioning in order.

    Much Appreciated.

    My guess is that your theme is broken and/or is not compatible with WP 3.1.1.

    I'm having the same problem when upgrading to 3.2.1
    Tried removing all themes except twentyeleven/twentyten, but doesn't help
    Tried emptying /plugins

    Still stuck in the Database upgrade-loop

    Any ideas?

    I have tried this solution, but now nothing is saved when updating posts or pages. I can not even activate plugins because the options are not saved. The screen says the post, page, plugin is activated, etc. but it never saves the info or state.

    Just clear your web browser history and try again. It is only a caching problem
