Support » Installing WordPress » Successful 3.2 updates anyone?

    There seems to be a lot of posts asking for help from people having problem with the 3.2 update. I am just curious if we can start posting successful updates on this thread so we know that the update is not as scary as it may seem.

    And perhaps also, was it a smooth upgrade process, or did you have minor problems?

    Currently I’m upgrading the PHP to meet the minimum requirement.

    Always make a database backup before upgrading.
    check the requirements before upgrading: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/health-check/
    Deactivate all plugins before upgrading
    Check the troubleshooting topic: http://wordpress.org/support/topic/troubleshooting-wordpress-32-master-list

    I updated to 3.2 whithout a problem.

    These are support forums. Naturally, only people with problems tend to post on them. 🙂

    There are always a lot of posts after a WordPress update – generally due to outdated plugins and themes with the odd corrupted/missed file during the upgrade/file transfer process.

    I’m not sure that a list of “I updated x sites without the slightest problem” would be very helpful. People who arrive here due to an upgrade (often fatal) issue are often angry and frustrated. They’re usually not in the mood to hear how it all went fine for others.

    You also need to bear in mind that those who post here are only a tiny fraction of the number of people who upgraded to 3.2 without a problem. The problem with reading posts in a support forum is that they can, quite easily, inflate an issue out of all proportion unless you keep in mind the overall user base numbers.

    Although it’s still early days, from what I’ve seen over the past 14 hours or so (and given past experience with other upgrades), I’d say that this upgrade has been pretty successful. The known issues have been well catalogued ahead of time thanks to Ipstenu and the number of popular plugins affected seems limited.

    Overall, a pretty positive result all round. 🙂

    Thanks! Somehow I have clicked on that automatic update button and now I’m on 3.2. Everything seems to be fine except that I’m getting errors with the timthumb script. (http://www.binarymoon.co.uk/2010/08/timthumb/)

    Instead of returning the proper thumbnail image, the script now returns with a bunch of errors:

    Solving “headers already sent” warnings
    check in wp-content/themes/bigfeature/library/timthumb/timthumb.php

    Thanks.
    Still trying to solve the error based on that link you give.

    If that doesn’t work try:
    downloading the latest version of the timthumb.php script which is here – http://timthumb.googlecode.com/svn/trunk/ and replace the one that came with the bigfeature theme.

    I had a successful 3.2 upgrade on my other site. so that’s one went well and one gone bad

    @keesiemeijer

    Thanks. Tried that too and still no success. 🙁

    Hi,

    I recently upgraded to WordPress 3.2 and now I can’t add tags to my posts or even do quick edits.

    I already tried deactivating all plugins and this still didn’t work 🙁

    Does anyone know why or can help me with this? Thanks!

    No issues, except for…

    If you are using custom permalinks and or category/tag base, you may need to reset these after upgrading to WordPress 3.2. When I upgraded it broke all the tag and category permalinks until I re-saved my custom structure.

    Hi Simon P

    when you say reset do you mean completely re-do? hope you can clarify. thanks!

    @ aelabalos

    I had a custom permalink of
    /%day%/%monthnum%/%year%/%postname%/
    Which seems to have changed during the upgrade, and a category base of “Photography” which was removed during the upgrade and therefore was reset to the WP default, which broke all my tags and category links.

    Other than that no issues so far.

    My site went down after upgrading to WP 3.2 due to not meeting minimum requirements (PHP version 5.2.4 and MySQL version 5.0)

    I know, I should have checked the “Read Me” first. Luckily I made back-ups, so no harm done.

    You can find out what your PHP and MySQL version is by using the Health Check plugin
