Support » Installing WordPress » categories corrupted after 2.9 upgrade

  • worldbycharts


    Hi, when I installed wordpress 2.9 over 2.8.5, all posts were marked as Uncategorized. The categories still exist, but not everywhere. Link categories are also broken.

    I then deleted the mySQL database, installed 2.9 and ran install.php, and uploaded the XML file. To my surpise, the categories are still broken.

    Here are some symptoms:
    – posts are all uncategorized
    – the link widget does not work
    – categories.php does not show any category
    – adding a category works, but no posts can be associated to it
    – categories are visible under “Most used”, but not “All categories” in the post edit form.

    How to debug this?
