Support » Fixing WordPress » No categories to Convert

    okay since my blog (or database) broke down during the upgrade, I think it has to do with Categories. In the Administration, under manage categories, and then go to the Categorie to tag converter, I see now that all my categories are gone:

    Convert Categories to Tags

    WordPress database error: [Table ‘wordpressdb.en_terms’ doesn’t exist]
    SELECT t.*, tt.* FROM en_terms AS t INNER JOIN en_term_taxonomy AS tt ON t.term_id = tt.term_id WHERE tt.taxonomy IN (‘category’) ORDER BY t.name ASC

    You have no categories to convert!

    Can someone please explain what happened?
    Is there a fix?

  • I think something went wrong with the database conversion that is done while upgrading to 2.3.
    I have no default “link categorie” nor do I have a default “post categorie”.

    Any sugestions for a fix?

    I dropped all tables in MyPHP. Uploaded the back up database. Re run upgrade.php, and voila everything seems fixed.

    Thank you george! Your reply helped me fix mine 🙂

    Hi. Just in case that someone still have the same problem (today I must to update one of my friend’s blog from 2.2.3 to current 2.6.1 version -my God!-, and the categories disappear after the update)…

    The solution: BEFORE the update, open your wp_categories table and, if they are empty, fill every register of the category_description field with their correct name.
    THEN you can update (I hope) without troubles.
