Upgrade query (3 posts)

    First, the readme is lacking in terms of upgrading .71 to .72. I gathered that it involved replacing all the files, editing wp-config.php and running the upgrade page...all was well until:
    [Table 'foranewliberty_com.wp_linkcategories' doesn't exist]
    Admittedly, I don't know the names of my tables, but I do know that they are what WP made them when I intially installed this wonderful program 4 months ago...any ideas?
    foranewliberty_com is the name of my db...apparently, the upgrade is prefixing all the queries with this name and the db doesn't like it...how do I alter it so it just asks for "wp_<insert name>"?
    Thanks!

    Most probably your tables are named with a prefixing b2_..., but the default configuration of 0.72 is assuming wp_... as prefix. Change that accordingly in the wp_config.php and it should work (I guess).
    Bye, Mike

    it is worth looking at your db using phpmyadmin to see the table structure ... in fact you can export a copy of your table using it for backup purposes every once in a while so that if something breaks in the mysql setup you aren't up a creek without a paddle
    for those that have never used it, it is an incredible tool ... will even help write your php and mysql queries:
