Support » Installing WordPress » automatic 2.7.1 upgrade problem

  • Resolved D M


    In entering the ftp data for the automatic 2.7.1 upgrade, I left out one letter in the host name and therefore got an error, so I re-entered the hostname, but now the field has BOTH the hostnames, the incorrect and the correct one, one after the other. This field will not clear, even if I enter the correct hostname again, it defaults to this 2-hostname error.
    I have logged in from 3 different computers and this error in the field remains and will not clear.
    I have cleared all caches on my browser and computer, but the error remains.
    All plugins are deactivated and I don’t have the time or expertise to upgrade manually. I have done this automatic upgrade before and had no problems.
    Any suggestions?

    This is from my source code for the page…

    <form action=”update-core.php?action=do-core-upgrade&_wpnonce=6c7a9dcc3e” method=”post”>
    <div class=”wrap”>
    <h2>Connection Information</h2>
    <p>To perform the requested action, connection information is required.</p>

    <table class=”form-table”>
    <tr valign=”top”>
    <th scope=”row”><label for=”hostname”>Hostname</label></th>

    <td><input name=”hostname” type=”text” id=”hostname” value=”” size=”40″ /></td>

    <tr valign=”top”>
    <th scope=”row”><label for=”username”>Username</label></th>
    <td><input name=”username” type=”text” id=”username” value=”” size=”40″ /></td>

    <tr valign=”top”>
    <th scope=”row”><label for=”password”>Password</label></th>
    <td><input name=”password” type=”password” id=”password” value=”” size=”40″ /></td>

    …I have bolded the offending input under hostname in the form input area.
    This cannot be undone for some reason and I have searched the appropriate upload and update PHP files aa well as my Database to see where this would be stored and cannot find it.

    How do I eliminate this input in order to enter the correct input?
    Is there a PHP file somewhere in the WordPress files where this input is stored which I can access?
