[resolved] Upgrade problem (9 posts)

    I just upgraded to the version 2.3, it works great. I just have a quick question:

    According to the instruction, I have to delete all the old files (I just renamed it), and uploaded the new ones, then run the upgrade.php. However if I do that, I will loose all the plug-ins, themes, etc. For my upgraded, I had to re-applied all the plug-ins, themes, etc.

    So what's the best way to do so?

    If you are not using a default theme. then just delete everthing *but* /wp-contents/ and you shouldn't lose anything.

    I just tried to upgrade to 2.3, but it wiped out my site. Yes, I followed the directions. lol

    If it wiped out your site, sounds like you might have used a different $tableprefix in your wp-config.php file.

    Check your database with phpMyAdmin to see if you have for that one set of tables.

    Fortunately, since you followed the directions, you have a backup of your database that you could restore if necessary.

    Not sure what you mean. :)

    You dont' understand about phpMyAdmin or what tables to look for.

    If you don't have phpMyAdmin in your control panel, ask your host for a list of that tables that are in your database--do you have two sets of tables? WordPress has 10 tables.

    Yes, I do understand phpMyAdmin. I have no control panel so I use phpMyAdmin to work with my databases.

    Anyway, thank you... but I've gotten it fixed :)

    Sorry, that came off a little snotty. Apologies.

    What was your solution?

    Apology accepted :)

    The problem was that one of my other scripts was conflicting with wordpress. So, I had my host find me a work around. Now it works great... and he installed the new upgrade, too.

    Gotta love my host :)
