    To downgrade to WordPress 3.4.1

    1. Backup your wp-content directory and your wp-config.php file.
    2. Delete your WordPress files and replace with a freshly downloaded unzipped version of 3.4.1.
    3. Replace wp-content with your back up and move your wp-config.php file back into place
    4. Edit your database and change the db_version option in wp_options to 20596.
    5. Log back in to your admin and confirm everything is working

    May be did not finish update properly as is only a security update you can using ftp replace all files and folders except wp -content and wp-config.php file

    Thanx Chris, works perfectly now.

    “Backup your wp-content directory and your wp-config.php file.”
    I did back up database with Portable phpMyAdmin – is that took care of what you’ve said above? I’d appreciate if you could give me a detail step by step how to downgrade as I’m very nervous deleting file. your(Chris’) comment from 5days ago is completely foreign to me – don’t understand really any of it, please help beginners.(I was using older version and fine until upgraded to 3.4.2, then on one category, I got
    “Fatal error: Call to undefined function ciii_category_image”
    please someone help, thank you

    Maybe not necessary step 3a. delete wp-config-simple.php

    Deleting wp-config-simple.php is not going make any difference is never used once the wp-config.php file is created

    backup database if you not had backup

    All you need to do download 3.4.1 from here http://wordpress.org/download/release-archive/ and unzip on your computer using ftp replace all files and folders except wp-content folder and wp-config.php file

    In 3.4.1, i had several plugs such as redirection, etc working. When I upgraded to 3.4.2, all of my plugins disappeared! What happened to them?

    The plugins are in the “plugins” folder but try as hard as I can, i can’t get them to “activate”. Help!

    Please start your own post. Your problem has nothing to do with the original post.
