Support » Fixing WordPress » Troubleshooting 2.7.1 Upgrade

  • I am trying to use the new automatic upgrade feature of WordPress 2.7.

    But, it fails with the last message being:
    Unpacking the core update

    The URL says: wp-admin/update-core.php?action=do-core-upgrade

    What is the best way to troubleshoot this problem?

    Thanks for any ideas!

  • I’ve got the same problem.
    Some people suggested de-activating/deinstalling the automatic upgrade plugin.
    I did that, but the error persists.

    Some people think it’s the server

    but my server-guys are not sure… yet… hopefully.
    Anybody any ideas, please?

    update: I successfully tried deactivating ALL plugins. Then update automatically worked.
    Afterwards needed to reactivate all plugins, and enter WP API Key for Blog Stats plugin.

    I am happy now, but it was quite painful!


    [Solved] wordpress automatic update from version 2.7.1 to 2.8.4
    October 2nd, 2009

    After moving from Asmallorange to exabytes hosting, i cannot upgrade all my plugins and can’t upgrade my wordpress to the latest version 2.8.4

    I have search through everywhere but couldn’t find the solution to this problem.

    I have tried downloading core control and edit .htaccess but failed.

    Finally i solved it !

    1. Always backup your database and also your files / folder.
    2. Delete your old wp-includes and wp-admin directories.
    3. Upload the new wp-includes and wp-admin directories.
    4. Upload and overwrite all the old files in the root, EXCEPT the wp-content folder and wp-config.php file. (I repeat DO NOT DELETE YOUR WP-CONTENT and WP-CONFIG.php file)
    5. Visit your main WordPress admin page at /wp-admin, login and it leads you to an upgrade page, click upgrade and follow instruction.
