[resolved] Images gone while editing after upgrade (2 posts)

    After upgrading from 2.0.2 to 2.3.2, I can't see images in the "Browse" or "Browse All" tabs while editing a post. Instead, I see the filename of the image. Posts appear normally, with images displaying properly.

    No plugins are activated.

    My uploads are organized into month-and year- based folders, but this problem happens whether or not "Organize my uploads into month- and year-based folders" is checked in "Options | Miscellaneous".

    It happens even if I copy the images from the month-year folders into the root of the wp-content/uploads folder. (I assume that's where they go if they're not organized into month-year folders.)

    It happens even if I revert the three wp-admin files that I've customized (with cosmetic changes) to the originals.

    It happens in Firefox 2.0.0.9 and Safari 2.0.4 and 3.0.4 on a Mac, and Internet Explorer in Windows.

    Any suggestions?

    I figured out what's causing this problem: the upgrade killed the wp_postmeta database table. (MySQL "error #1016 - Can't open file: 'wp_postmeta.MYI' (errno: 145)" when I try to access it from phpMyAdmin.)

    Somehow WP is still more-or-less working, which is amazing.

    I'll back out of the upgrade and try again.
