  • Try:
    – switching to the Twenty Eleven theme by renaming your current theme’s folder inside wp-content/themes and adding “-old” to the end of the folder name using FTP or whatever file management application your host provides.

    resetting the plugins folder by FTP or phpMyAdmin.

    – re-uploading all files & folders – except the wp-content folder – from a fresh download of WordPress.

    – running the upgrade manually via wp-admin/upgrade.php

    Tried…it still not working.
    The page still showing the same message; asking me to update WP database but nothing loaded after I click the “update” icon.

    I have an IT guy helping me do all suggestion..but seems like WordPress is having database issue.

    Any other solution? -_-

    Have you tried repairing your database? Do you have a recent database backup that you could restore?

    Yes, I am restoring atm… Im afraid to upgrade to 3.4 now… -_-

    Strangely, my other site (which under same domain) has no problem at all.

    So, if I want to update to 3.4, should I do it manually? Just like the procedure you mentioned 9upload all files except wp-content?

    my other site (which under same domain) has no problem at all.

    I’m afraid that doesn’t really mean a thing. It could still be a database issue. Or a theme, plugin or server issue. Any or all of these could create your current problem.

    should I do it manually?

    You can certainly try. See for the full instructions

    Tried….*sigh* Still not working.

    My other site : is under same server, I have no problem with automate update.

    My other has problem. Both sites has same theme, same plugins same settings. Both are actually identical but I don’t know why I can’t complete the 2nd site.

    BTW, I disabled all plugins before I upgrade, but still seeing “Database Update Required” message and nothing loads after I click it.

    Please help… I’ve been restoring my site for 5 times now…lol

    Did you try repairing your database?

    No, There is no error message displaying database error.
    I am having the same problem with few other members in the forum, WP 3.4 couldn’t update database after installation.

    My other blog was under same server, same ftp domain folder had no problem. Every time I do restore, I had to upgrade the other site ( again. At least I did 5 times of automatic upgrade to 3.4…no problem whatsoever.


    Then you have confirmed that this is site specific.

    This member had the same database issue while upgrading on GoDaddy server.

    Does WP 3.4 require a specific version of MySQL?

    @starapple: It is impolite and contrary to forum policy to interrupt another poster’s ongoing thread with a question of your own. Please post your own topic.

    Hmm… not sure.. but I will take a look which plugin is preventing WP database upgrading.

    Solution for WordPress WP-Options Issue – Database Upgrade Required

    if that doesn’t work also check your memory_limit in your hosting PHP config.

    @esmi, I appreciate your help to me and others. I think that there is more impoliteness in your rushing sometimes to determine what is appropriate. I have not introduced any new topic but having been following the various threads of the apparent problems related to the 3.4 upgrade have just noted that someone else had a similar experience and wondered – in seeking solutions – whether there is a connection to the version of MySQL being used. Unless of course you think that there is only one way to approach what appears a widespread issue.

    Now, I note that more than one GoDaddy-hosted person has issues. Would it be impolite to query whether the fact that different versions of MySQL my be in use, even by two sites on the same physical server, could be a contributing factor? GoDaddy seems not to host MySQL on the same servers as the sites, meaning creating to DBs within two minutes of each other could mean different circumstances. The suggestion in the help so far is that there is no problem with the new WP code but with other environmental issues.

    I won’t be doing the upgrade until there seems to be some stability.

    We had this problem and just solved it! Open the PHP file version.php which is located in wp-include folder of your wordpress blog, and check the field $wp_db_version. It should be equal to the db_version of WP_Options table. For more detail, read
