Missing Posts and Pages After Upgrading to 2.7 (34 posts)

    After upgrading to 2.7, I lost all of my posts and pages. Thank goodness I did a back up. How do I restore the posts and pages? I'd rather not fully restore WP back to the older version. I would imagine this is an easy fix.

    Can't imagine what you did unless you changed the $table_prefix in wp-config.php.

    Restoring_Your_Database_From_Backup explains database restoration, but if you are reverting to 2.6.5 you will need to restore WordPress files also.

    I can't find any menu items with exception of Tools and Profile. How do I get all of the menu options? Plus, the WP is crunched up on top and bottom so i can't see anything, I'm blind clicking once my mouse becomes a hand (OSX)

    Please help

    I can see all the page and post info in the database within phpMyAdmin. I don't think I need to import anything into the database. It seems that I need my wordpress to pull from the database. I checked the options.php and it seemed fine.

    I am having the same problem you was having with missing posts and pages - may I ask how you fixed it?

    Well now my entire site is gone - but can I asked how you fixed your problem still? As I upgraded on another site which I use WP and the same problem with missing posts and pages is happening on that site...

    Thank you in advance

    I spoke too soon. After I restore my database, and then try to do anything I get this:

    WordPress
    Database Upgrade Required

    Your WordPress database is out-of-date, and must be upgraded before you can continue.

    The upgrade process may take a while, so please be patient.

    Upgrade WordPress

    If I click Upgrade then I lose my posts and pages again.

    Lisa, did you backup your databases?

    yes i did backup my database - I shoulda backed the site up too...but I asked my host to restore it for me...but i got a database backup

    I would rather have missing posts and pages as that is what happened to me at first when i uploaded the new version files over the old version files (overwrite the ole ones with the new ones) and i had missing posts and pages...parts of the admin cp was missing and the site itself just was not working properly

    so i deleted all the files and uploaded the new files and upgraded - first time my site disappeared - gone blank and that pissed me off so I deleted all the files again and reuploaded the new files...same problem - blank site - no site

    So I contacted my host tech support requesting a site restoration from their most recent site backup -

    Rite now am thinking to start over as to be honest...2.7 LOOKS AWESOME but tis a real shame when you upgrade it is all messed up

    To be honest...I honestly think it got some bugs in it as I did follow the instructions and I know am not doing nothing wrong...only thing I done wrong was no deactivating my plugins when upgradin the first time and maybe that is where the problem lies but like I said am new to WP...and I didn't know you had to deactivate the plugins when upgrading...

    DrGonzoRIP, if you upgrade, then visit Posts->Edit, do you see your posts?

    @DrGonzoRIP well i am just speculating... change your theme to defacult for time being and remove/diactivate all your plugins (move all plugin files and folder to some ohter folder) and then check your blog.

    if you are on wp 2.6.x then try to upgrade to wp 2.7and then check your blog.

    Michael,

    When I upgrade the database, then go to Posts->Edit. It says No posts Found.

    What if you rebuild/repair your MySQL tables before doing the upgrade?

    Which tables in particular should I be repairing? I checked all the table that showed overhead values, then upgraded. Unfortunately, same result.

    Well i successfully upgraded from 2.6.5 TO 2.7 without any problem just my WP-sticky which is solved now.

    So here's the formula to successfully upgrade ur site;

    1) Don't use automatic update option, do it manually

    2) Follow the intructions.

    http://codex.wordpress.org/Upgrading_WordPress_Extended

    Upload files using ur FTP

    Note: Don't follow this rule

    "wp-content folder; Special Exception: the wp-content/cache and the wp-content/plugins/widgets folders should be deleted"

    Just delete wp-content/cache don't delete wp-content/plugins/ folder

    and u'll get fully working site.

    DrG - so you start with a working 2.6.5 database showing how many records in wp_posts table?

    Then you do the upgrade and how many records are in that table wp_posts when you get done with the 2.7 upgrade?

    I have his same exact issue.

    I have 35 posts and 19 pages, but of those, only 3 are shown. However, on the main page, they don't show.

    I posted last night, but got no response.

    Why?

    I know the issue with cron.php was having no include("http.php"); in there for some odd reason thus the function undefined PHP errors.

    But, now this?

    I have a complete 2.6.5 database that I have backed up. I followed all the instructions and steps in upgrading from 2.6.5 to 2.7, but it hasn't worked perfectly.

    Why has it worked for others but not people like myself?

    Why are there undefined function PHP errors for a final release?

    Any straight answers?

    I had 35 records before upgrading and then 0 afterwards. I had 4 pages before upgrading and the 0 afterwards.

    when I import my database it returns to normal, but then I'm prompted to upgrade the database. When I upgrade the ports and pages go away again.

    I have what may be the same problem (opened another support item before reading this)

    I cannot access my blog database once I have upgraded to 2.7
    If I place my old config file in place I can access my database and I get the 2.7 dashboard - love it.

    Whenever I add the new config file (with same data-base username details entered (double-checked formatting) then the 2.7 shows the default style template and none of my history blog posts.
