    We have tried all day to upgrade to 3.0
    here it shows in the tools page

    Upgrade WordPress

    Downloading update from http://wordpress.org/wordpress-3.0.zip.

    that is it. Nothing happens, all plugins have been updated……..

    our host AT&T is still only supporting 2.83, they are on the ball..so they won’t help at all, so we are not in a hurry to do it manually…….
    Any Suggestions?

    I think you’ll have to do a manual upgrade in this case.

    But what would cause the auto update not to work?
    does anyone know, is it a plugin..ect/?

    Even it’s not cause by plugin, before upgrading it is wise to deactivate all your plugins first.

    btw, how long did u wait? 5 minutes?

    well, I did not wait a long time, they have always been fairly fast in the past………does it take a while?

    No, it really should have happened in about a minute. You could try doing it again with your plugins disabled.

    DELETING SOME PLUGINS FIXED MY AUTOMATIC UPGRADE PROBLEM.

    Another suggestion Just wanted to throw this idea out there.

    I have started upgrading various installations to 3.0, failing often.

    One of the tricks I just tried (again) was to JUST DELETE some of the plugins I really don’t need. and, I did this inside of wordpress (as opposed to thru CPanel or FTP).

    I then tried the automatic upgrade again, and it worked.

    Sometimes this works; sometimes not.

    I tried Cruth’s advice, as plugins usually are the culprits in these cases (which is understandable of course).

    but if it is any help, I had the wp-spamfree plugin that was causing the trouble. I also run a few blogs and many of them were not upgrading automatically.

    Wp-spamfree is a super plugin, I think, as it makes spam fighting very easy. But they have not upgraded their plugin to work with wp 3.0. which is bad. :/

    anyways, hope this has helped.

    Hello,
    My WordPress version is 2.7, so I used the automatic upgrade from my dashboard. I deactivated all my plugins before doing the automatic upgrade login as admin and using my username to do the automatic upgrade.
    I have the following error:
    Could not copy file: /public_html/wp-content/upgrade/core/wordpress/wp-activate.php

    It’s my first upgrade and am not too sure whether I should aim for manual
    Any pointers?

    Thanks,
    Cher

    I deactivated the spam free plugin and got this error message I had never gotten before:

    Fatal error: Allowed memory size of 33554432 bytes exhausted (tried to allocate 2965231 bytes) in /home/ipenwil9/public_html/wp-includes/http.php on line 1358

    First, try installing the Memory Bump plugin.

    If that doesn’t work, here are four more ways to increase PHP’s memory allocation:

    1. If you have access to your PHP.ini file, change the line in PHP.ini
    If your line shows 32M try 64M:
    memory_limit = 64M ; Maximum amount of memory a script may consume (64MB)
    
    2. If you don't have access to PHP.ini try adding this to an .htaccess file:
    php_value memory_limit 64M
    
    3. Try adding this line to your wp-config.php file:
    Increasing memory allocated to PHP
    define('WP_MEMORY_LIMIT', '64M');
    
    4. Talk to your host.

    I had deactivate and delete a plug in
    finally a plug in called super slider was the problem!

    automatic update worked instantly!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    Thanks everyone
    That almost drove me nuts…come visit us folks wsopne.org

    God bless you all…….

    You’re welcome!

    Hi, I deleted all my plugins. Still no luck automatically upgrading to 3.0. I get this message “Unpacking the update.” and then nothing happens. I don’t really want to re-install everything. Any suggestions?

    websuccessteam, your server is missing the necessary software to unpack the archive. You’ll have to upgrade manually:

    THX MacManX. Can’t seem to find the .htaccess file could that be the reason I can’t upgrade?
