  • There is an upgrade folder in wp-content path

    There is also a file called .maintenance in the web root path ?

    Pete

    Anyone know how to fix this please ?

    Are you running it through a auto installer?

    We only used the WP auto update.

    no I mean, when you installed it. did you use a auto installer from your hosting provider?

    [Advertising deleted – please do not do that here]

    Try doing a manual update:

    Please make sure you have a full backup first.

    I’m posting on behalf of someone. He uses Zoho free hosting, it is quite likely that there was an auto installer, as the defines in wp-config.php are very non standard. It’s an M$ server, not the ideal.

    Please make sure you have a full backup first.

    That’s the problem at present ..

    1. It’s free hosting with Zoho.com, so there is no backup (or anything really)

    2. I tried the BackUpWordPress plugin, but it needs to do a cron to backup, and crons are impossible on a M$ server. You have to use a task scheduler or similar.

    There must be a method to simply run some php code and ‘dump’ the database, then we will be in a position to apply that manual update.

    Try doing a manual update:

    Thanks, I removed the .maintenance file, and ran /wp-admin/upgrade.php , received some message about upgrade not required.

    That message up the top of the dashboard has now disappeared. 🙂

    We couldn’t do a full backup, had to be content with an export of the database, and we have a local copy of the files/site.

    There is still an wp-content/upgrade path there, looks like a complete snapshot of the site a few months ago.

    Can we safely remove that “upgrade” path ? I see no reason for it.

    Does that mean that removing the .maintenance file removes the need to updatee the site?
