[resolved] Upgrading to 2.7, duplicate terms created from categories (2 posts)

    I've inherited an older version of WP (2.0.2) and am testing the upgrade to 2.7.1. During the upgrade I receive database errors that duplicate entries were created in the wp_terms table. From the initial research I've done, that appears to be caused by duplicate category_nicenames in the wp_categories table which are ported over to wp_terms before wp_categories is dropped.. This results in certain posts having the wrong categories attached.

    Has anyone run into this and is there a method of getting the two tables synched up appropriately so that this doesn't happen?

    Thanks in advance!

    It is beginning to look like someone tried to upgrade this database to 2.3 and stopped/failed -- I'm finding version 2.3 files and the database is still 2.0. Changing this to resolved.
