I am running WordPress Version 3.0.1 in one of my sites, and have installed/upgraded to NextGen Gallery 1.6.1. The NextGen Gallery Plug-In is activated and when I click on any of NextGen's menu options in my left taskbar, I am greeted with the following message:
Upgrade NextGEN Gallery
The script detect that you upgrade from a older version. Your database tables for NextGEN Gallery is out-of-date, and must be upgraded before you can continue. If you would like to downgrade later, please make first a complete backup of your database and the images.
The upgrade process may take a while, so please be patient.
Start upgrade now...
I have waited for this process to complete for approximately 4 hours and still nothing. However, the NextGen Gallery is functioning on my site, but because of the message above, I am unable to upload images to the Gallery or able to access any of the administration functions of the the plug-in.
Any help, which any of you can provide would be greatly appreciated as I do not want to lose the galleries that I currently have installed and uploaded. Thank you in advance for your responses.
