    If you are still looking (as I was) and also using a child theme and you can edit a functions.php file then you can add a line in there that will prevent Yoast’s og meta tags:
    add_filter('wpseo_opengraph_url' , '__return_false' );
    I looked all over for this and found two suggestions from Yoast’s support – the other one is to go to the Yoast Dashboard and select Social which is where you can turn off the OpenGraph (FB) Meta tags.

    Warning: Missing argument 3 for wpseo_upgrader_process_complete() in /home/USERACCOUNT/public_html/wp-content/plugins/wordpress-seo/inc/wpseo-non-ajax-functions.php on line 259

    I got this error on my previous update. I had confidence that it would be fixed shortly, but no, I updated today and see the same error. I have downloaded the latest version to my computer and I will search for the file in question to compare it with what I have installed and if they are different, I plan to replace my screwy file with a new one. I only hope I don’t break something else in the process. Since it took so long to find this particular thread (silly me, I tried the Yoast site first) I was truly expecting to find a fix here and I don’t see one. 🙁
    Edited to add, the new version I got today is 1.4.19

    I’m also moving a wp install from bluehost and had my wp installed in a subdirectory. I’m not going to move it to godaddy, I have my own hosting site, but I am finding some alarming things in the way the site had been set up at bluehost. I had the site there since about 2007 so that may be a problem that is not the same as yours, but when I opened the wp-config.php to edit in the new db name and username I found that it is an antique version of wp-config from many years ago although I regularly update my wp install. It is totally missing all the Security Keys that have been in all other wp-config files I have seen since v. 2.60, it has only one “Secret Key”. I am going back to bluehost to hunt down a missing set of files because there is no way this could be the proper wp-config for this install. The actual wp-config files can be stored up to one directory away from the wp install, so I am hoping to find where they put it. The wp-settings file may give me clues or I’ll stroll through the sql for hints.

    The host set it up when I first installed it and I have had no problems there except outages and other host problems, nothing to do with wp. Just added this so you know that everything you moved may not include all the needed files. Another tip – Godaddy hosting is well known to use unusual settings on php, many scripts do not work there without tweaking. A quick search on the web may tell you more.

    OK, I chickened out and asked my host to do the backup, downloaded 198Mb, so it was more than it looked like anyway. The idea of not messing up something on the way to putting it all back together if I needed to was too much.

    Thank you again, catacaustic, that is what I meant when I said that I had read that there are other methods, I read it here in the WordPress support articles, but I have no clue how to download using mysql’s command line. They tell you to do it but no way to find out how that works. I don’t use mysql for anything except WP so like I said I am not a wiz in using it. That is why I am planning to export one table at a time, because I know how to do that.

    I looked at different sites to try to find out how, but they are all about different things like importing files via ftp from another site and don’t get to the part I need to read. I need to set up folders for the different tables, to keep it organized, but I don’t know another way to copy the database. If you know a place to find the information I would be happy to go and take my time to read.

    Thank you for your help, I’ve been holding off updating, too worried about working without a backup to do any real changes.

    but the plugin fails after 5 minutes anyway.

    Is this also true of the Power version? I have one very large old site and was thinking I could do it with that but I am certain it would take longer than 5 minutes. The .sql file alone is about 300Mb.

    Thank you Patrick, but the biggest problem I was having with it was that the code was showing up in the post. I’m not still trying to use the plugin now.

    The format I used was from the plugin’s own page: [expire date=”yyyymmdd”][/expire] although i see that I entered it with the date reversed here in my question. If this was a side project it should not show up in the plugins search? I visited the page before installing it and there was no mention of it being a side project. After removing the code from my posts a dialogue panel showed in WP that was not there when I tried to use it. Perhaps I needed to log out and then log in again before trying to use it. At any rate it was not working for me so I am not currently using it. I appreciate your response here.

    If the php code you are inserting cannot execute because of your host, it is not a defect of the plugin. Some domain hosts do not allow php scripts that rely on data outside of your domain, so first check with your host. GoDaddy is a host that is known to disable remote script calls for instance.

    Disabled all plugins which let me log in again, from here I will manage.

    I found the db issue: The backup file at 63 Mb was over the size limit for import via phpMyAdmin, it had to be manually imported. Now there is only the problem of not being able to login to Admin.

    I thought it might be easier to start where I left off than to start a new thread because the above information helps the rest make sense. This is long.. In preparation to move the site this week I did more than one backup, but they did not download and went instead to a backup folder inside WP even though the radio button to download was checked. The site I am moving is not my creation, I am helping a friend move his site. When we put the site back up on it’s old host last Dec. it was fine. To move it to the new host I ftp’d all the files to a folder on my computer and then ftp’d them in to the same new host where we had tried before. On importing the .sql file into the existing database there was an error but it appeared to be working fine. I think it looked OK because the DNS change had not taken effect yet. Within half an hour it was still OK, but there was a error message from a plugin across the top of the front page. I deleted the plugin with the error and then went to log in to Admin. While logging in to Admin, I got this notice:
    Database Update Required

    WordPress has been updated! Before we send you on your way, we have to update your database to the newest version.

    The update process may take a little while, so please be patient.

    There is no way to bypass and run an update via the dashboard so I clicked “OK”. The update took about 2 seconds, and since the update, all files created after the original move in Dec. are gone. After the update it was impossible to log in to Admin. Clicking on the “lost password” link on login allowed the password to be changed, but it still does not allow Admin login.

    The version of wordpress that had been installed on the server was not changed, but the old existing install was deleted prior to moving all the files into the domain, we had updated WP to the latest version just before backups.

    Since this problem, after talking with tech support at the new host (westhost) first I dropped all tables and imported again, got the same error and again the site was missing all posts since Dec. Then I created a new db and copied that info into wp-config.php and wp-settings.php. The import went fine, but it is missing all files since Dec. I did and Export (.xml) prior to the move and I haven’t used that file because I can’t log in to Admin. Obviously I’ve done something wrong, but have no idea where to look. I have done a search here and similar cases are several years old many unresolved. The db on the previous host (GoDaddy) is probably still there, I haven’t logged in there to see if I can get it out. I recall trying that last Dec with no success. I am thinking I will need to delete this whole thing, install a new WP and try moving all these files into it but if building a new db and importing from backup is missing files, they will be missing no matter what I do. Hoping to be able to log in and do an import instead? Suggestions? Help?
    Thank you.

    I pointed the DNS back to the old host and just put the old site back where it was. Since I still have a few months of hosting there I will redo the move when I have more time. I can’t tell what version it was because I removed all the plugins trying to get the site visible again, but I do know that I kept WP and all plugins up to date so it was the current version on Dec. 13, 2010 when the backup was done. The WP-DB Backup plugin that I have now was installed new today. I’ve done this before using the WP-DB Backup without a problem. When I get ready to move it again, I will check before editing the DNS to be sure I have what I need.
    I am bewildered as to what went wrong because I always use the plugin to back up everything before I do a WP update and the few times I ever needed to check, it has been a .zip file and had everything there. Since the original db was cached on the host it all worked out OK.
    Thank you!

    The Sitemap Generator works flawlessly, except that manually added static pages are not being added. I have dozens of static html pages that are linked to from the WordPress front and from posts, but only the WordPress pages show up. Any way to get all the URLs included?

    Before you upload the plugin, check it to be sure that the folder you upload is not a wrapper. Quite often plugins come in a folder of the same name so when you upload the plugin”X” folder to your directory it can’t be activated because the actual plugin is inside another folder.
