Unable to Manually Update WPMS to 3.4 (5 posts)

    Tried looking at this thread. To no avail.

    I am unable to do auto-updates because of the way our server is setup, so, while trying to manually update from 3.3.2 to 3.4, I receive this error when I go to update my network of blogs:

    Warning! Problem updating . Your server may not be able to connect to sites running on it. Error message: A valid URL was not provided.

    Before we get too far, I should say that we had a server crash earlier this week and I had to reinstall MySQL and repair a few DB's in the process to allow me to log into my WP install as SuperAdmin. That being said, once that was finished, everything was working again to my knowledge.

    My URL displays upgrade.php?action=upgrade as the URL when I get the error, so it's some issue there and not with my blogs - in any case I went through the gamut of repairing my DB's anyway in hopes of correcting any problems: same error.

    I set debug to true and these are the errors I received:

    Notice: get_theme_data is deprecated since version 3.4! Use wp_get_theme() instead. in C:\Inetpub\wwwroot\XXXXXXX\wp-includes\functions.php on line 2705 
    
    Notice: add_custom_background is deprecated since version 3.4! Use add_theme_support( 'custom-background', $args ) instead. in C:\Inetpub\wwwroot\XXXXXXX\wp-includes\functions.php on line 2705 
    
    Notice: add_custom_image_header is deprecated since version 3.4! Use add_theme_support( 'custom-header', $args ) instead. in C:\Inetpub\wwwroot\XXXXXXX\wp-includes\functions.php on line 2705

    I tried replacing the functions.php file with the nightly builds version, but still got these errors, too.

    As you can see I'm on Windows ('08 running IIS7). I've had my fair share of issues in moving to this, but was running perfectly.

    Is there something I should be looking for in particular in relation to the "Error Message: A valid URL was not provided."?

  2. Switch your main site's theme to TwentyEleven and try again.

    I have some users who're in the middle of teaching a class via the blog, so I'll update later this week on how switching to TwentyEleven and upgrading again works out.

    Thanks for the support (as always!), Ipstenu!

    For those wondering why, the network admin is 'connected' to your main site, so if your main site has a theme that's whackadoo (get_theme_data calls being a clue), then it'll bollux up your upgrades :/ Only fixes are:

    1) Switch to a good theme (TwentyEleven) and upgrade
    2) See if the theme is fixed, update it, then upgrade

    Wanted to update on the progress...

    There has been none :P I have some users who needed to use the site until next week without hiccups, sooo... the upgrade got pushed back.

    I'll update after I finally get to implement your suggestions.

    Thanks!
