Support » Alpha/Beta/RC » wp trunk on xampp can't upgrade to normal

  • Resolved emwp


    I download zipped wp trunk from link above.
    I then installed it on xampp.

    Later on I wanted to upgrade to the latest normal version of wp.
    But I can’t.

    The upgrade will always be pulling from trunk only.
    (it shows in admin screen as nightlybuild )


    Is this expected behavior ?
    Is there anything I could do to upgrade to normal version ?

    Thanks for any help!

  • I believe that’s expected, since you shouldn’t downgrade by accident 🙂

    Manually download the normal version and apply the files by hand. That’ll kick you back over.

    @ipstenu thank you and i think that makes sense
    actually it’s what i’m about to do now.

    but still

    i wonder how wp tells the upgrade system that “Hello ! I’m a trunk version – so get me the upgrade from trunk now !”

    i mean, there must be a setting in db record that if i just go in and change the value from ‘trunk’ to ‘normal’ ( something like that ) then it can just upgrade to normal version.

    am i right on this ?

    Yeah, but I’m damned if I can remember what :/ I don’t think it’s the DB, it MAY just be the version.php file.

    @ipstenu thanks again. it works !

    i opened wp-includes/version.php

    and change $wp_version = '3.2 bleeding';
    to this $wp_version = '3.1';

    then i login and see the update showing 1
    clicked on that and do the core update, this time the system is updated to latest normal version now.


    Hey cool 🙂 My brain worked!
