Support » Plugin: NextGEN Gallery - WordPress Gallery Plugin » Nextgen 2.0.40 plugin locked up site after WP 3.8 upgrade

  • I have a long time functioning site. After recent update to WP3.8 the Nextgen 2.0.40 plugin has locked up my website. After disabling the plugin my site works fine.

    Contacted host and we deciphered that the Nextgen plugin was stopping my site from loading.


    Are there any known solutions or is a WP roll back the best solution?

    @truekustom – How is NextGEN Gallery locking up your web site? What processes did you and your hosting service use to point to NextGEN Gallery?

    We would really like to get issues like these sorted out but we really need a lot more to work with than it “locked up site”. Feel free to submit a Bug Report ( … please reference this topic) and we will try to help you get this sorted out.


    – Cais.

    Host service disabled all plugins. We re activated each plug in and refreshed the site on another tab. All other plugins worked fine. When the Nextgen plugin was activated the site stopped loading.

    @truekustom – Those are the basic troubleshooting issues we tend to start with, did you also look at your current theme as well? … and have you submitted that Bug Report for this issue?

    We see same next-gallery problems as written above (WP 3.8 and Nextgen-gallery 2.0.40). This is related with problem written here.

    This SQL query is in state “Copying to tmp table” about 300 seconds and locks other nextgen-gallery SQL queries.

    SELECT wp_ngg_pictures . * , wp_options.option_value AS ‘custom_post_id’, GROUP_CONCAT( CONCAT_WS( ‘@@’, meta_key, meta_value ) ) AS ‘extras’
    FROM wp_ngg_pictures
    LEFT OUTER JOIN wp_options ON wp_options.option_name = CONCAT( ‘wp_ngg_pictures_’, )
    LEFT OUTER JOIN wp_postmeta ON wp_postmeta.post_id = wp_options.option_value
    WHERE (
    exclude =0
    ORDER BY rand( )
    LIMIT 10

    There are more than 2000 (!) “displayed_gallery_rendering….” rows and more than 1200 (!) “_transient_…” keys with “nextgen” value in wp_options table.
