Upgrade 1.5 > 1.5.1 (204 posts)

    Angsuman, thanks for your kind reply. I found an easier (for me) way to backup the db, since I'm not at all familiar with shells or any of that. I was surfing around my hosting site; I went to CPanel, which had (surprise!) a big button labeled "Backups." Ha! Then I chose the aptly-named "Download a MySQL Database Backup" option. Click. All done. Now that's "db Backup for Dummies"! :-) Thanks again, though, for trying to assist me.

    I'm posting this not only to say thanks, but also just in case it can help someone else who comes along reading this thread and can use this option. Best wishes. :-)

    please ignore this post if someone has answered this but has anybody documented upgrading from 1.2 to 1.51? i upgraded several blogs from 1.2 to 1.51 this weekend and had to upgrade to 1.5 first before again upgrading to 1.51. a bit of a hassle!

    will appreciate all the help!

    1.2 > 1.5.1
    You should follow the same path as if you were going to 1.5.0

    Why did you upgrade the way you did ? (Not saying you were wrong, just that if something has been missed for people then it needs adding)

    I have several blogs that I was too lazy to upgrade when 1.5 came so I just upgraded them when 1.51 came. I kept getting sql errors (unfortunately I wasn't able to do a screencapture or write the errors down) if I did it from 1.2 and skipped 1.5 so to played it safe I did it the long way. I wrote down the steps I used in my blog:

    I'll have to try it again and post the error I get when upgrading it straight to 1.51.

    Thanks!

    I just noticed something strange. In my entry edit screens (for both posts and pages) I am missing the "Next" button for pagination. Is this a singular quirk I'm having or is anyone else missing that button too?

    I just want to applaud the WP developers on another job well done! I upgraded and the process went smoothly. So far, I haven't seen anything happening on my blogs that shouldn't be. :)

    Can't logout of WP 1.5.1 and have started another thread for answers. http://wordpress.org/support/topic/33265 Has anyone an idea why this is happening?

    I'm having the same problem as Cyberhomie and Bwahahax. I followed the instructions from the codex for upgrading, the one that Matt refers to in his 1.5.1 release post. Same problem. Just a blank page. Anyone know how to fix this?

    Wierd, after loging into the admin I went back to the home page. Suddenly it was working. I didn't change anything in the admin but it's working anyway. Disregard my last post. Thanks.

    BAStats fix:

    Add the following to BAStats.php right after the first include:

    require (ABSPATH . WPINC . '/pluggable-functions.php');

    Do you suppose I should have mentioned that my fix is a fix in the sense that (a) it gets rid of the error message and (b) seems at first glance to work, as far as I can tell, but is almost totally untested?

    Naaaah.

    A question and a suggestion.

    The question: I used wp-images as my upload folder (it seemed like a more appropriate folder than the default wp-content). I can't see how it would, but is not deleting that folder going to cause a problem?

    The suggestion: These upgrade instructions are much more detailed than those in the readme which I followed. I just stumbled across these after doing the upgrade. You might consider putting the updated instructions in the readme.

    Upgraded to 1.5.1.2, followed the instructions.

    Links don't work.
    - Clicking on post titles take me to the most recent post.
    - Clicking 'previous posts' stays on the first page.
    - One of my categories (Photos) is a custom archive page, but it doesn't show the posts from that category.

    It's not the permalinks. I took them off, same issue.

    I believe I follwed all of the instructions, although I am in the process of trying everything for the second time.

    I recieved:

    Fatal error: Call to undefined function: get_currentuserinfo() in /home/vindaug/public_html/wp-content/plugins/exhibit10.php on line 205

    after upgrading. Does this mean I should have deactivated the exhibit plugin before I upgraded?

    Ignore my previous post, I didn't read all of the pages of responses . . .

    Personally I upgraded in an easier way, if you have shell access on your server (First I disabled the plugins):

    #tar xzf latest.tar.gz

    This, to me overwrote all the files at once, then I browsed to /wp-admin/uograde.php . That's it. Worked fine for me.

    Awesome thread! Very helpful in ridding myself of the Exhibit errors I was getting. However, if I understand correctly, the plugin is supposed to add a section to the advanced version of the "write post" page, right? Unfortunately, it doesn't seem to be doing that for me. I've got no other errrors as far as I can tell. Any ideas? I'm on WP 1.5.1.1, btw...

    Opaz - feel free to start a new thread.
    Could you link to this 'jvisitors' code too ?

    (A new thread will get more people likely to see and help)

    Is that upgrade so important? I've got no problem at all with 1.5
