I tried to install the upgrade and it brought up a red screen telling me I needed to run an update script. When I clicked on the link I got a screen full of php code.
So I went in and re-ran the wizard. All goes well until Step 5 when I get another page full of PHP
I get the following error in the php error log:
Code: Select all
[29-Mar-2007 10:13:29] PHP Fatal error: Call to undefined function: update_option() in /webstuff/admin/admin_wordpress.php on line 2036
Line 2036 is:
Code: Select all
I also seem to remember that update_option caused the almost_spring theme to fail.. So is it just that an include is missing somewhere?
If you are upgrading, and have ever turned on user integration before, you must
run the upgrade script. That's why the big red screen pops up -- it's important. If you run througn the Setup Wizard without doing this, you're setting up the user integration to be a bit of a mess, as any previously registered suers will get new blog accounts, leaving their old ones orphaned... or they will receive error messages when they try to visit the blog. If you're getting "a screen full of php code" coming up, something is wrong -- probably the file got corrupted when you uploaded it.
The update_option line isn't really indicative of anything.. it has nothing to do with incompatibility. Basically, it's the first WordPress command that is being called after that part of the script enters WordPress. Looks to me like it is not making it into WordPress correctly (which is odd, since it should be throwing up an error first).
Apparently the almost_spring template is not compatible,so I'd try disabling that first (I will address this in the next update).
How 'integrated' are you right now? Any chance of starting from scratch with fresh files and new database table (and a clean wpu_int_id column in phpbb_users). I have the feeling something was applied wrongly before and the error is magnified now.
In terms of upgrading, I know it is a hassle, but this is beta software, so I really recommend staying on the ball with updates... If you still get the above symptoms, perhaps you could PM with with an admin username & password, and I'll try to troubleshoot for you. More info on your server would also be helpful.
