Database error after upgrade (3 posts)

    Since the 2.8 series I get the following message with a database error after completing the automatic upgrade:

    Downloading update from http://wordpress.org/wordpress-2.8.4.zip.

    Unpacking the update.

    Verifying the unpacked files

    Installing the latest version

    Upgrading database

    WordPress database error: [Lost connection to MySQL server during query]
    SELECT option_id, autoload FROM wp_options WHERE option_name = '_transient_update_core'

    WordPress upgraded successfully

    Am I the only one with this problem? Haven't seen any other posts but there are so many

    Sign of madness: talking to myself.

    I've not come across this problem specifically, but I will offer a word of advice:

    Sometimes it's easier and less time consuming to backup your entire WP directory locally, do a new install, and copy over your wp-config.php, themes, plugins, and uploads folders to your new install than trying to search for the needle in the haystack!
