Support » Installing WordPress » Upgrade query

  • First, the readme is lacking in terms of upgrading .71 to .72. I gathered that it involved replacing all the files, editing wp-config.php and running the upgrade page…all was well until:
    [Table ‘foranewliberty_com.wp_linkcategories’ doesn’t exist]
    Admittedly, I don’t know the names of my tables, but I do know that they are what WP made them when I intially installed this wonderful program 4 months ago…any ideas?
    foranewliberty_com is the name of my db…apparently, the upgrade is prefixing all the queries with this name and the db doesn’t like it…how do I alter it so it just asks for “wp_<insert name>”?

  • Most probably your tables are named with a prefixing b2_…, but the default configuration of 0.72 is assuming wp_… as prefix. Change that accordingly in the wp_config.php and it should work (I guess).

    it is worth looking at your db using phpmyadmin to see the table structure … in fact you can export a copy of your table using it for backup purposes every once in a while so that if something breaks in the mysql setup you aren’t up a creek without a paddle
    for those that have never used it, it is an incredible tool … will even help write your php and mysql queries:
