Support » Fixing WordPress » Strange problem on WP 3.0.1 auto upgrade

  • Just wanted to post up a problem I ran into on auto upgrade to 3.0.1.

    Just looking to see if anyone else had a similar issue or any ideas whats up? Not looking for advice really on upgrading, I’ll just do a manual.

    But I clicked auto upgrade a couple of times now. I get to downloading, and that’s it. The page says ‘done’ down at the bottom of browser window, nothing else attempts to load at all.

    The footer area that shows WP version changed to 3.0.1, my source code says 3.0.1, but when I go to it says I’m on 3.0.

    No functionality issues or anything, everything is working fine. Just a bizarre issue. Anyone else getting anything like this?

  • Yes I got this, having used autoupgrade successfully on other blogs to version 3.0, I held off upgrading on the massive blog until 3.01 was released. I had exactly the same issue as you, the page never refreshed or did anything so I had to manually upgrade via ftp.


    for some reason i can’t use auto upgrade from wp 3.0 to 3.0.1

    have been using auto upgrade all along for all previous versions.

    i am puzzled.

    Yeah, auto upgrade has always worked for me until this version. I’m still unable to do it. (been trying one at a time on all my WP sites)

    My 3.0 to 3.0.1 worked just fine, but all individual blogs kept asking to be upgraded for a while, asking for ‘network upgrade’, which I already did. I just hit the button again, WP said it was already upgraded and the notifications were gone. That’s all the ‘prob’ that I had.

    Hmm….it just keeps dying on me. But I just discovered something. I have 5 sites hosted on godaddy, and 1 self-hosted to play around. I updated the self hosted just fine, but the godaddy sites won’t upgrade. Wonder what could be new that contributes to this?

    i solved it by deactivating all plugins. Auto upgrade was successful

    My guess

    WP now includes the WP Automatic Upgrade functionality and I was using the plugin

    seems there is a clash there (or with another wp plugin)

    Glad you found your issue! That’s not mine tho, I always try deactivating plugins and going to default theme when I bump into an issue

    I try to auto-update my WP 3.0 to 3.0.1.
    The script install the new version but my site is now down. The result is “Internal Server error”. Please help me

    Try installing the Memory Bump plugin?

    Yeah, I know that shouldn’t matter, but it worked when I tried it.
