    I have had a problem with the schedule posting on V 2.9 – I have today (6th January 2010) downloaded and installed the v 2.9.1 update – this is Still NOT working please can someone give me some advice on what else I can do. I need to set up a range of posts for posting over the next few weeks, and if this cannot be got to work then my efforts will not be worthwhile

    p.s. sorry if this is posted in the wrong place

  • You might want to double-check your upload of the new version and make sure all the new files went up and replaced the old ones. I had the issue and it was corrected after I upgraded to 2.9.1 Is it still giving the same error? Missed Schedule, I think is what mine said. Do you have any scheduling plugins that you might need to turn off or update?



    Hi, as far as I can tell the files have been replaced with the newer versions. I am still getting the message “schedule missed” on any future posts I create. I have downloaded a zip file of the upgrade files and extracted them but I must admit I am not entirely sure how I am supposed to try installing those – so any further help and assistance would be good. As far as I am aware I do not have any other plugins active on the site that could cause me grief.
    Thanks in anticipation

    Simply upload everything that came in the zip – except the entire wp-content folder – to your WordPress installation.



    Hi, I am sorry to say that this did not work either. I uploaded the entire upgrade files that came in the zip file to the install directory but excluded the wp-content folder – am still getting the “missed schedule” message so I think that the upgrade to 2.9.1 is still flawed. I am open to any further suggestions. Thanks

    umm “missed schedule” may mean wrong future date? 2009 instead of 2010? Just wondering…



    I have checked and double checked that I have got the future date post correct and listed as 2010, so once more I am at a huge barrier in how I am supposed to get over this, especially if I want to get a bank of stuff created and scheduled to publish over a few days if I cannot get to log in to post manually. I even tried again today but still the same problem.

    So any further help or even some feedback from the gurus at WordPress on how I can get over this would be even better.

    Cheers for now in anticipation.

    It sounds like you’re not correctly overwriting an existing file. Did your webhost do the initial install for you? If so, have them do the upgrade, too. Otherwise, you’re going to have to take drastic measures.

    If you can’t get your webhost to help, you can try these steps. Please, note, you are taking your chances here so make sure to backup EVERYTHING first.
    First, make a backup of your current, live WordPress installation. THIS IS THE MOST IMPORTANT STEP!
    Two, after making the backup, remove everything but the entire wp-content folder and the wp-config.php file.
    Three, upload all the new files.

    Good luck!

    I am having this same issue. I did my install through my admin window… should I try NetworkGeek’s solution, or is there something else I can try in the admin panel? is there something that I need to select (i.e. check box) to get this to work?

    @thehemorrhoidshometreatment, have you gotten yours to work yet?

    If you did the install through the admin window, and I’m assuming you meant your webhost’s control panel admin window, then I’d contact the webhost and ask them to upgrade it for you. Again, make sure to back up your installation first!

    Good luck!

    @networkgeek I performed the update through the wordpress admin panel. I clicked on the banner link at the top that displays when there’s a new version available.

    In addition however, the problem has now morphed. the schedule post gets published but I’ve another issue which I started a thread about here.

    I really need some help with the new issue that has come up.
