What is the current version of the plugin you are using? If your current version is less that 4.1 then you will get this error. That is too old to auto update. You can try updating to version 4.1 then update latest version from there.
Be very careful as this may result a data loss. Full backup first before proceed.
I currently running Version 11.2.2 of Front-end PM, on a server running Nginx, Varnish, Apache, and PHP version 7.2.27. I have the following files in the database:
But for some reason in WordPress I still have a message that says, “Front End PM needs to database update”. When I select to proceed and start the update I am greeted with, “Front End PM update: You cannot update from your current version”.
The database uses a different prefix than wp, but I don’t see where that would be an issue. The wp_fep tables are for Front End PM correct? I guess I could try removing the plugin, and manually cleaning the database of the above-mentioned tables and try from scratch. That might fix the issue, but I’m not certain.
Do you have another suggestion or a way for me to manually update the database? I’ll wait back to hear from you before I proceed to investigate further. The site is still in development, but I would love for this plugin to work for me.
BTW- I’m running PHP-FPM but I can change my PHP to an older version if you need me to.
As your site is in development i suggest you following
1. Go to Dashboard > Front End PM > Settings > General and tick “Remove Data on Uninstall”
2. Uninstall and Delete this plugin from plugins page.
3. Fresh install this plugin again from wordpress.
Let me know.
Thank you, that seems to have fixed the issue I was having. Everything seems to work great now.
