[Plugin: WordPress Automatic upgrade] Whata Joke! (26 posts)

    This crap screwed up my system... Stay away. The only thing this is, is an AUTO-MATIC-FUDGE-UP

    If you don't mind reinstalling your WP and database (hopefully that you backed up) then try this out. Also locked me out..

    psthi... I should have listened to you...
    USE AT OWN RISK!
    Wasted an hour trying to find out why it said that it successfully installed when it didn't (All I got was a Maintenance Mode message on the home page) Yes, I tried renaming the index.php file as per the FAQ instructions (No, didn't work).
    Eventually just gave up and reinstalled my backup files.

    If it aint broke, don't fix it.

    AAARRRRGGGG....
    Now I can't login to my Admin. All I get is a white page with nothing!!
    My website is up and running but I can't log in to manage anything.
    It accepts the login and password then goes nowhere... nada... nothingness.
    Not happy! Anyone have the same problem and know how to fix?

    Same problem. Can´t log in anymore. Doesn´t process password. Requesting new password doesn´t solve the problem.

    We´ll upload WP once more and see if it works once more. If anyone has a solution...

    This worked perfectly for me. I've been dreading upgrading so delayed for months, but this took just me just 5 minutes, and I followed instructions exactly. Thank you so much...

    I got a fatal error when trying to install the plugin on WP 2.5.1. Which after reading all these comments telling tales of disaster I feel fortunate that I didn't get to go further and screw up my system. I don't understand how it has such a high star rating.

    Last friday I upgraded 5 installations in about 20 minutes. Yes, it's lame to use a plugin like this, but WP has a built-in auto-upgrade too, but that doesn't work for me for some reason. Manual upgrade is safer, but when the plugin does what it promises, it's much faster and easier AND it makes backups in the process. I love the plugin.

    Worked fine from 2.5, 2.5.1 to 2.6

    WP Automatic Upgrade worked fine for many installs and messed up a couple. All depends on many variables like server configuration, deactivating plugins or not, etc. In the end, what matters most are your SQL and file backups (I also export XML all) before upgrading manually or automatically. That way, you can re-install/upgrade everything with clean database in 15 minutes or less if something goes wrong esp with the automatic upgrade.

    I'm gonna give this a try, it's a relatively knew site I've built so I'll only lose two days work. If I was charging for two days it would be a lot of money lost, but as it's for my own site.... I love a challenge. Watch this space!

    Plugin could not be activated because it triggered a fatal error.

    Or to be precise;

    Warning: require_once(lib/pclzip.lib.php) [function.require-once]: failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /home/*******/public_html/wordpress/wp-content/plugins/wordpress-automatic-upgrade.1.2.2/wpau_helper.class.php on line 11

    After the folder in the folder prob. Everything has gone hunkey dorey!

    Bit of forethought and half a brain and this plugin resembles canine testicles! ... or 'the dogs bo**ax' if one would care to put it that way. Do the backups, take care of where it installs and it's a gogo.

    Well done folks. Nice one.

    Mine crashed in exactly this manner, showing me that error. 2 mins of digging around and I got it solved. For some reason the update of the plugin didn't correctly transfer the files (notably this also happened on auto-upgrade to WP 2.6.1 also).

    1) Login to your FTP
    2) Navigate to /***Server Path***/wp-content/plugins/wordpress-automatic-upgrade/lib/
    3) You should notice some files are missing (for me all 5 were missing)
    4) Get the latest zip for the plugin from WordPress.org
    5) Upload the 5 missing files yourself

    Fixed.

    This is why I always recommend that my clients use a hosting company that has a one-click upgrade feature - avoids all of these issues. Thanks for this post though, a client sent it to me and now I'll really make sure to emphasize using the one-click install instead of this plugin.

    Worked absolutely great for me! It was the easiest upgrade I have done.

    I dread WP upgrading, but this worked without a hitch, particularly as I have my own custom non-WordPress directories and files contained within the WP installation directory.

    I made a manual backup of the WP directory and saved a complete MySQL backup via phpMyAdmin as well as the WPAU provided backups just in case, but all went without a hitch. There was a moan early on about permissions and it asked for FTP details, so rather than try to fix permissions I just went with providing the FTP details. Didn't really look into the fact that they might have been optional if permissions had been OK. Nonetheless, all went smoothly on two 2.6.1 -> 2.6.2 installs.

    This piece of crap worked just one time -- then they 'improved it'
    and the last 3 improvements never worked again and only caused major
    problems.

    I was really hoping this plug-in could help this beginner. I've been a bit intimidated to upgrade... so I uploaded it with FTP without problem to my Plug-in page, activated it. clicked on the Automatic update and received this error message:

    Warning: require_once(wpau_prelimcheck.class.php) [function.require-once]: failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /home/tammy/public_html/Ayrhahm/wp-content/plugins/wordpress-automatic-upgrade/wordpress-automatic-upgrade.php on line 497

    Fatal error: require_once() [function.require]: Failed opening required 'wpau_prelimcheck.class.php' (include_path='.:/usr/lib/php:/usr/local/lib/php') in /home/tammy/public_html/Ayrhahm/wp-content/plugins/wordpress-automatic-upgrade/wordpress-automatic-upgrade.php on line 497

    Has someone had this experience and found a solution ???

    Thanks
