• I have the message at the top of my admin panel that reads “Some BuddyPress Group Email Subscription migration tasks have not successfully completed. Visit the BPGES settings page to fix this problem.”

    I’ve visited the page many times, and it reads “Migrate queued items – In Progress. Some migrations are currently in progress. Please reload this page in a few moments.” It has never finished the migration. How can I get these items to finally migrate and fix this issue?

    Strange, something must have caused the migration to be aborted.

    You should be able to reset by deleting the _ges_39_subscription_migration_in_progress option. If you have access to wp-cli, it’s easiest:

    $ wp option delete _ges_39_subscription_migration_in_progress

    You can delete directly from the database:

    DELETE FROM wp_options WHERE option_name = '_ges_39_subscription_migration_in_progress';

    If you don’t have access to either of these things, I could write a small plugin that will do it.

    Thanks for the quick reply. I tried running the db query you provided but it said 0 rows affected. I ran this query to see what other values might be present in the wp_options table: SELECT * FROM wp_options WHERE option_name LIKE “%ges%”.

    Here is a screenshot of the results.

    Let me know if you have any other ideas on how I can proceed.

    If you have access to the wp-cli command line tool, you can also do the migration there.

    View the latter part of this article:

    Mine is also stuck on “Migrate subscriptions – In Progress” for the past 2 days now.
    I do not have access to wp-cli.
    Is there another way besides wp-cli or running a command directly on the db?

    @graydawn1234 I followed the instructions @r-a-y posted and tested on my staging site and it looks like it worked. From the page he linked (https://github.com/boonebgorges/buddypress-group-email-subscription/wiki/Migrating-to-3.9.0):

    If WP-CLI is unavailable, the following script may be used to force the migration in a single pageload. On large installations, this operation may timeout, but can be run repeatedly until the migration is complete.

    Put the following script into an mu-plugin: https://gist.github.com/boonebgorges/14c0d1042e85d263d48f3eaf7ca25b6d
    As an admin, visit wp-admin/?bpges-force-migrate=subscriptions to migrate subscriptions, or wp-admin/?bpges-force-migrate=queued_items to migrate queued items.

    Thank you in advance for your guidance!

    We ran the script and got the first two pieces of this migration to work, but I am unsure if I need to perform the last step of the migration.
    If I run wp-admin/?bpges-force-migrate=queued_items – will it trigger emails that have been queued to be sent out?
    When we click on View queued digest items in Group Email Subscription settings page, we get a blank screen so not sure if there is anything in the queue. Please give me some advice.

    @ninabr – No emails will be triggered by this script.

    The queue will be empty until the third step of the migration is complete.
