Error when using automatic upgrade feature

Viewing 4 replies - 1 through 4 (of 4 total)
  • In your wp-settings.php file on line 13 change WP_MEMORY_LIMIT from 32M to 64M. I think even bigger might work, but 64M has worked for me.

    If you receive an error trying to activate your product automatically or using the automatic update feature, you maybe behind a firewall/proxy server which is preventing the process from completing successfully. We have accomodated an alternate method for both so you do not have to change your system settings.

    I just did a complete file-by-file update from my old version (2.7.1) to the latest (2.8.4)

    Main index was blank.
    Admin console fails and also shows nothing but a blank page.

    I re-re-uploaded all the old files, but now it’s giving me errors regarding the admin dashboard file.

    Upgrade failed completely and my site is only semi-functional.

    This has been a nightmare and I can’t seem to get my site back to functional status.

    ADDITIONALLY!

    The new config-sample file did not feature any closing php tags.

    I am of the belief that this upgrade is incomplete.

    I did back everything up but clearly the upgrade process is not working at all.

    DO I now need to start from scratch including a full reinstall of all custom images, widgets, templates, themes, etc.?

    I am now entering hour #3 of this. HELP!

    UPDATE

    I reverted back to the original and am attempting the automated install. I would like to recommend that this process include separate ftp and database connection credentials. By default it pre-populates with the database credentials, which in nearly every case I have ever seen will be totally different from those used for ftp.

    I still appreciate any kind of feedback. This upgrade definitely appears to have been rushed out without proper QA.

    I was having the same issue and did exactly what “metalmd” posted above and it worked perfectly. It took less than 2 minutes.

    In your wp-settings.php file on line 13 change WP_MEMORY_LIMIT from 32M to 64M. I think even bigger might work, but 64M has worked for me.
