  • Resolved krimsly


    Greetings all,

    I’ve upgraded a WordPress install from a very old version (I think it was 2.5 or even older–circa 2007) to 2.8.4. The upgrade proceeded but the error below was reported. Can someone please let me know if this is a problem?



    WordPress database error: [Table ‘test.wp_linkcategories’ doesn’t exist]
    SELECT cat_id, cat_name FROM wp_linkcategories

  • linkcategories hasn’t existed for quite some time. I don’t remember which version was the last to have that table. You are dealing with a very old WP. If you have backups then re-upload all of the old stuff, DB too. Then upgrade incrementally until you get to the current version.
