  • Resolved OzarkChronicles


    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 Your database tables for NextGEN Gallery is out-of-date, and must be upgraded before you can continue.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.

  • Are you running a multisite setup ? This meas you didn’t activate the plugin “site wide”, just for this single blog , correct ?


    Thank you for the response. I am sorry for the confusion in my initial post. This installation of WordPress and the NextGen Gallery is on a single domain and it is the only wordpress blog on this domain.

    I have also duplicated the issue on another single wordpress installation with NextGen Gallery plugin that was recently upgraded for a different domain.

    Any help / input would be greatly appreciated, and I thank you in advance for any responses.

    from which version do you upgrade ?

    I would assume I went from your latest available update to 1.6.1, as I generally stay on top of your updates that you put out. To be honest though, I am not sure if I updated from 1.5.5 or 1.6.0 though.

    Thanks again for your support, a paypal donation is headed your way for the support.

    In looking at the nggallery.php file, the following code appears:

    var $version     = '1.6.1';
        var $dbversion   = '1.6.0';
        var $minium_WP   = '3.0';
        var $updateURL   = '';
        var $donators    = '';
        var $options     = '';
        var $manage_page;
        var $add_PHP5_notice = false;

    So it looks like i tried to go from 1.6.0 to 1.6.1, in a single site environment in WordPress 3.0.1

    I also checked the ngg_db_version in the wp_options table and it is set to 1.5.0.

    So something didn’t work from the upgrade. Is there any chance you can help me resolve this issue?

    Thanks in advance for your help or suggestions, as I would like to get the plug-in functioning correctly without having to redo all the images.

    You can manually set in the options table the value to 1.6.0. Didn’t understand why it ends in a loop, because the upgrade between 1.5 <-> 1.6 is just to set two settings values, not really a operation which should failed


    Thank you for the follow-up and the support. I made the following change, and the plug-in appears to be working correctly now.

    *I changed the ngg_db_version in the wp_options table that was set to 1.5.0 to 1.6.0 using myPhpAdmin

    The above change appears to have resolved the issue on both of the domains where i was having this issue. Thanks again.
