Support » Installing WordPress » v. 1.2.1 upgrade experience

  • I upgraded v. 1.2 to v. 1.2.1 on 10/14/2004. When I tried the upgade on my localhost server (Easy Web Server v.1.5), copying all the files except index.php and wp-layout.css, I had some of the same problems that I encountered when I was making my first WP installation. After I worked through the errors I had made, v. 1.2.1 works very well on that server. The improved login screen is great, allowing return to blog, etc.
    Being a little more paranoid about my <real> weblog on my <out there> server, I decided to examine all the files and only replaced those files which had been modified since v. 1.2. This are the list of files that I replaced.

    When I viewed my weblog, it came up readily and I thought I had it made. Imagine my horror when I tried to log-in. Neither my personal log-in nor my site admin login moved the focus to the admin panel. It just blinked like it used to before I got the wp-login.php from I decided to replace just wp-login.php from my backup copy and then everything worked very well.
    I have no clue why the wp-login.php file works on my local server, but not on the online server. Any ideas?
    Other than that, it looks like v. 1.2.1 is ready for prime time.

    Seeing as I seem to have made a connection to the future, could I ask you who wins the Sunday NFL games? 😉

    All the updated files are listed here:
    If you want your blog to perform as the devs intended, you must replace ALL of those.

    podz, is it really necessary to upload the wp-admin.css? I’m using another CSS file for that.
    My only problem so far is that I cannot seem to log in as admin, and the email sent to me is in Base64 code, so I cannot get whatever password is indicated. Might I have done something wrong?

    Sorry – didn’t see the css was in that list.
    I haven’t uploaded that either. I use the nice green css from not-that-ugly 🙂

    I see. 🙂
    Sorry to post this same question, but I’m also not the only one to ask: I’ve had a login problem with the updates; though I finally figured out that (I think) when you request that a password be emailed, WP resets the password, the main problem is that it’s sent in Base64 as of 1.2.1. Is this a new feature? And, if so, what am I supposed to do with it? It doesn’t work as a password.
    The only way I’m able to log back in is to reupload my original 1.2 configuration, get the new password, and then reupload the 1.2.1 update pages. Obviously this isn’t an ideal scene.
    Am I dealing with the Base64 emails incorrectly, or is this a problem and, if so, is a fix in the works?

    I also notice that I’m getting no cookies from my blog, and cookies are enabled in my browser. This is curious; I don’t really care if I have them or not, but I’m wondering whether they’re supposed to be there.

    Sorry; I take that back. I had not yet logged in, so no cookies.

    The new wp-admin.css changes the login menu, so now my login.php doesn’t look the same with the not-that-ugly theme.

    Likewise – but I don’t mind as I don’t see that screen very often.

    I don’t either, I’m using the blue screen and oh my does it look nice.
