[resolved] Network update under WP 3.1 (17 posts)

    Hello,

    I try in local to upgrade a WP network from 3.0 to 3.1. It seems ok (except some plugins that are not compatible) but i have a problem with the update of my network, after the update of 4 or 5 child blogs the update stop and i see the following message : Fatal error: Maximum execution time

    I can't increase the execution time, those 4 or 5 blogs work perfectly but the others display now a blank page in front page, so my question, is it possible to manually do this update for each of my blogs ?

    Many thanks
    Thomas

  2. Yes, login to the admin area of each one. it fires the same process.

    And a blank white page means a php error. Likely one of the plugins. Find the error logs on the server.

    Hello Andrea,

    Many thanks but i can't find any update link for my child blogs, could you please tell where you find it ? When i'm in network admin i can see it but that's all.

    At this time only updated blogs display properly, the others display a blank page.

    Thanks
    Thomas

    Just by logging in, the upgrade process is fired. There isn't a link to click.

    Also, as Andrea pointed out, blank pages are PHP errors. You need to dig into your server's error logs and find out what is going on.

  5. Many thanks but i can't find any update link for my child blogs, could you please tell where you find it ?

    login to the admin area of each one. it fires the same process.

    Thus, there's no link to click, like tim said

    And a blank page is a php error, again - you need to find the error logs on the server. We don;t know what's going on either.

    I have exact same problem for almost a month. I posted several questions, I read and tried almost everything. I even upgraded manualy to 3.1.1 (automatic upgrade doesn't work, as well as Network admin, Install new plugins, Editor... and who knows what else).
    At one thread I read solving problem by changing wp-config:
    define('SITE_ID_CURRENT_SITE, 7)
    define('BLOG_ID_CURRENT_SITE, 7)

    Author didn't explain why "7", default is "1", but he had 7 subdomains. So, I have 2 subdomains and I tried with 2 - but nothing happens.

    The site is working, in fact I can do whatever I want (via FTP), but it is annoying

    Hello Slob,

    I don't understand what is your problem.

    Only a few part of your child blogs are updated and the update process has stopped ?

    In my case, that was the problem, the network update has stopped before it update all blogs and now, those that have been updated work perfectly but the others display blank page.

    Andrea & Tim tell me that this blank page means a php error but i don't understand why the updated blogs works but not the others, i use the same theme and the same plugins...

    oh no... I never updated Network - I can't access Network admin at all.. I can't access Install new plugins, Editor..., either.
    It's been happening since I upgraded to WP 3.1, and now even to 3.1.1. manualy.
    I also have blank page (in Firefox). Try different browser, you might get some message.

    I had the same problem with some of my MU networks, it was because of incompatibility with plugins (Wp Theme Switcher in my case).

  11. At one thread I read solving problem by changing wp-config:
    define('SITE_ID_CURRENT_SITE, 7)
    define('BLOG_ID_CURRENT_SITE, 7)

    Author didn't explain why "7", default is "1", but he had 7 subdomains. So, I have 2 subdomains and I tried with 2 - but nothing happens.

    that's a good way to break things.

    The number in those define declares what blog ID is your MAIN site. By default it is one. It has no relation to the number of sites you have.

    And please - disable *all* your plugins.

    god... it was THEME here!!! I erased all plugins, I reinstalled whole WP... and it was THEME all the time! ("Gemer" at my case - and it doesn't cause any other problem, just Network since 3.1)

    I've just upgraded to 3.1 when I click on the Update Network link to go to mydomain.com/wp-admin/network/upgrade.php I end up in a redirect loop that fails.
    Safari returns:
    Too many redirects occurred trying to open “http://mydomain.com/wp-admin/network/”. This might occur if you open a page that is redirected to open another page which then is redirected to open the original page.

    Nothing has changed on my install in months no new plugins no new sites nothing. any ideas?

  14. I've been finding in some threads, certain hosts don't like rendering that nested admin folder.

    I've been away for a couple of days so sorry for the late reply.

    I have other installs that run on the same host that run without any issues :/

  16. Not all accounts on a host are created equal.

    By 'host' do you mean 'all accounts are hosted on the same VPS server' or just 'I have multiple accounts on a webhost, spread across their myriad servers'?

  17. And it could also matter if they are the main domain in that account or not.
