    After some testing and porting I have multisite working, and I love this functionality... Excellent job.. works as a charm...

    The only thing I have not figured out yet is how to update my wordpress version. I run 3.1.2 now and I see 3.1.3 is out. When I run update the message is that I have the current version

    What am I missing?

    Please advise


  2. And you went to network admin -> updates, yes?


    Are you running any kind of upgrading plugin?
    Did you update the rest of the sites in the network?

    I ran site.com/wp-admin/network/update-core.php

    Last checked on June 13, 2011 at 3:25 pm. Check Again
    You have the latest version of WordPress.

    Not running any updating plugins
    Did not do any update from within a site in the network

    In the network sites there is also no notification of an outdated core.

    Any suggestions?

  4. Did you disable updates in the config file?
    Are you aware you can always update manually?

    I did not disable updates, have installed wp-cache though..
    I would love to have wp warn me on updates, which it does not do now...
    Any other suggestions

  6. Turn off caching.

    thank you for your tip...
    however I Turned it off... but, it still mentions that my version is the most recent one...

    I am lost

  8. It's possible your server's blocking the connection check. This isn't a localhost install, is it?

    Thanks Ipstenu, the website is on a regular host, plugins installing from wordpress directly works fine, so I guess it is not a blocking of connection.
    Somehow I have a sandbox site without mu that updates fine... guess I need to create a mu sandbox too...

  10. No, installing plugins is a separate thing that checking for update. The process by which WP checks for updates may be blocked, is what I'm wondering.

    How can I check if that is blocked?

  12. That I cannot remember off the top of my head... *gonig to look*

  13. That's what I was asking up above.

    I copied my site to a sandbox location
    Disabled all plugins
    and even commented out:
    //define('WP_ALLOW_MULTISITE', true);
    //define( 'MULTISITE', true );
    //define( 'SUBDOMAIN_INSTALL', false );
    //$base = '/';
    //define( 'DOMAIN_CURRENT_SITE', 'domain.com' );
    //define( 'PATH_CURRENT_SITE', '/' );
    //define( 'SITE_ID_CURRENT_SITE', 1 );
    //define( 'BLOG_ID_CURRENT_SITE', 1 );
    //define( 'SUNRISE', 'on' );

    Ran the update (then it is not a network update, but hey.. lets look if that works), and still 3.1.2 is the up to date version

    Blocking updates could be true... but now idea how to check it or fix it

  15. Yeah, I'm looking. Sorry, I got derailed with an 'Angry User' attack :/

  16. Updates are identical when using multisite. Same files coming from the same place.

  17. But the update CHECK (the part of WP that 'phones home' to say 'Do I have an update?') is NOT the same as the part where you go to plugins, search for a plugin and download one.

    And I'm not sure which one robov means with this

    "plugins installing from wordpress directly works fine"

    Are you getting notifications when your PLUGINS need to be updated?

    I do not know if I get notifications of plugins, guess they are not outdated yet.

    I am really lost now on how to do updates... and even worse... I feel stupid that I cannot figure out why it is not working

    It shows version 3.1.2 in the lower right hand corner and it still mentions: You have the latest version of WordPress.

    Thanks for the support

  19. I do not know if I get notifications of plugins, guess they are not outdated yet.

    There's an easy (manual) way to check, y'know ;) Go to the plugin directory on this site and see if any of your plugins are out of date.

  20. You get plugin update notcies in network admin. Yu'll see a number in a circle on the updates menu, even in the admin bar, and on the updates screen it will show you any plgins or themes that need updates as well as core.

    Don;t feel stupid tho, cuz its quite possible the server you're on could have it blocked as well.

    thanks , I did see plugin and wp updates on my other (non multisite) sites. Even on the same server...
    But I feel stupid I cannot get teh multisite to update...
    I have no clue what to do next to figure out why it is not updating and how to fix that...

  22. It's not something in and of MULTISITE that would restrict the phone-home to the server to check for updates. And unless we're talking same server, same user account, same everything, then there STILL could be differences.

    Ask your host if they block any phone-home features?

  23. or if they have it blocked in the firewall on that account.
