I’m getting the error message “Your database is out-of-date. Please upgrade” when logging in to my new (2nd) WP installation, with all links to posts pointing back to my original installation. The circumstances leading to the error were as follows: having happily run a WP blog from my home server (a Mac) for 6 months, I now want to split it (so big has it become) into two separate installations, one for each main topic. I backed up the database, did a clean install of WP 2.04 in a sub-folder of the root directory, created a new (empty) MySQL database (using CocoaMySQL-SBG), edited name and user in wp-config.php, ran wp-admin/install.php, logged in and checked it–everything looked fine–and then logged out again. I then imported the backed-up database into the new MySQL database and logged back in. (My intent had then been to delete from each of the two installations the posts belonging to the other.) It’s on logging back in, however, that I get the error message: “Your database is out-of-date. Please upgrade”. Despite much fiddling, I can’t get the new installation to reset the paths in the database (I’d figured that changing the URI in Options > General would update the paths in the old DB? but it seems not to, with the “upgrade” link pointing to the URI for the original installation) Any ideas? Thanks!
