fatal error upgrading

  • pretty distressed right now. I have a website running buddypress 1.2 with a few other bp plugins as well. been trying for days to set up a local test site so i could test the 1.5 upgrade. had a really difficult/frusterating time moving my online site to local test site so i decided to just upgrade live (bad call). guess the upgrade didnt go well and now i cant access my site or my site/wp-admin. i did a bunch of backing up beforehand but i’m unsure how to use the backup files to restore my site to pre upgrade.

    any help would be greatly appreciated. i’m really new to all of this.

  • using bluehost by the way. and im not sure what im suppose to do to use my backup file to restore the entire site.

    You didn’t say which plugin is causing the error message, or show the error message itself. I’m assuming you think it’s BuddyPress.

    Go into FTP, and go into your wp-content/plugins/ directory. Rename the BuddyPress folder to something else, then visit the admin pages of your site.

    I’m assuming it’s the buddypress plugin that caused it because it happened right after i upgraded to 1.5.1 in dashboard.

    ok i just renamed the buddypress folder in wp-content/plugins via cpanel file manager. still cant access my wp-admin

    bump for more help please. happy halloween too!

    Then it might not be the BuddyPress plugin causing the problem. Access your web server’s error log, and tell us what the error is. If you’re unable / don’t know how to do this, ask your web host for support.

    im thinking it might have to do with the unified global search plugin that i got from buddydev.com

    yep i was right, i removed the codes within my childtheme functions.php that coded for the global search and everything is back up now. thanks for pointing me to the error log paul!

    You’re welcome!

    This has happened to me in trying to upgrade from 2.0.1 to 2.0.2

    Why should upgrading cause fatal errors for those who call built-in BP functions in their functions.php?
