Support » Installing WordPress » Upgrade 2.9.2 Failed

  • I had 2.9.1 installed; I clicked the “WordPress 2.9.2 is available! Please update now.” on the dashboard. This did not help matters. When clicking that, I get “You are not allowed to call this page directly.” on the update-core.php.

    So, I followed what another thread said, and I manually uploaded/replaced all of the files on my website from the 2.9.2 tarball. I’m still being shown as running 2.9.1 and it is insisting that I upgrade. I did the update.php and it didn’t require a MYSQL database update.

    How can I get WordPress to recognize that it was upgraded, OR, access the built-in automatic upgrade system to let it install???

    Go into wp-includes/version.php and see what version it thinks you’re running? It sounds like you didn’t update all the files.

    Having same problem when trying to upgrade
    WordPress 3.0-RC3-15260.
    WordPress 3.0.
    getting message
    “You are not allowed to call this page directly.”

    when trying the auto-update inside WordPress..

    Have you tried deactivating all plugins & switching to the default theme before upgrading?

    Good call, worked for me!

    Same issue. Esmi has it right! Thanks!

    Had the same issue when trying to upgrade to 3.0 automatically. Disabling JUST the NextGen and NextGen ImageFlow plugins solved the problem. I didn’t have to deactivate all of them or change my theme.
