Error when upgrading from 3.0.12 to 3.1

Post by keepingitodd » Thu Oct 30, 2014 9:09 pm

I've been trying to upgrade to 3.1 and it's giving me fits. I finally got to the point where I can update the database, and I'm getting the following message.

I don't know if it's relevant, but I have PHPBB integrated into Wordpress via WP-United. I've tried deactivating the plugin but it doesn't make any difference.

Has anyone else experienced this? Is there something I need to change? Do I need to back out the update and change a setting before I do it? This is driving me nuts. :(

Code: Select all

Illegal use of $_SERVER. You must use the request class or request_var() to access input data. Found in {MYPATH}/wp-content/plugins/wp-united/base-classes.php on line 666. This error message was generated by deactivated_super_global.

Your error message is coming from wp-united.
You will need to seek support wherever you got that.
Be aware that you are supposed to remove all of the mods before trying to upgrade phpBB to 3.1.
