Upgrading from RC-1 to RC-2 or 1.0 Release
It is extremely important that you follow the upgrade guide if you are upgrading from 1.0 RC-1 to 1.0 RC-2 or 1.0 Release of BuddyPress.
BuddyPress 1.0 RC-2+ REQUIRES WordPress 2.7.1 or greater.
For those of you tuning into us via SVN:
BuddyPress RC2 = BuddyPress Revision 1406
Anything +1406 can be referred to as “trunk” again.
Check these topics for some important reading on upgrading your existing BuddyPress installs.
Andy when the language files will be integrated in automatic update of BP?
I did the svn up and all seemed to work well as the site is still working.
I read in another thread that rc2 makes some db changes.
Is there something I should be doing other than just updating my svn or does the db automatically upgrade?
Anointed: The DB will upgrade automatically.
Mekudos: Make sure you have the forums component enabled in the site admin under “BuddyPress > Component Setup”
Hi i just did a fresh install on one of my sites and at teh bottom i’m getting these errors:
Warning: Unknown(): open(/tmp/sess_e33a1e30e69602089d345f87dd187034, O_RDWR) failed: Permission denied (13) in Unknown on line 0
Warning: Unknown(): Failed to write session data (files). Please verify that the current setting of session.save_path is correct (/tmp) in Unknown on line 0
Does anybody know what this might be?? i’m assuming it might be a .htaccess setting ??
Nirok: Looks like permission settings on the /tmp/ folder.
Oh man thats an oversite, was just the htaccess not having the old : AddHandler application/x-httpd-php5 .php added to it, lol… thanks for the upgrade BTW!
I have a question about the loader.php in the css directory.
I followed all steps of the instruction:
However my directories were messed up. The styles weren’t applied. I figured out that it has something to do with the loader.php in the css directory.
My question is if it is possible to just copy the RC2 /css/loader.php in my customn theme /css/ folder? I’m afraid, cuz the new loader.php is much smaller with significant less file imports (where are the imports for e.g. grups.css / blogs.css /friends.css / wire.css)?
[Changed post title to reflect 1.0 Release.]
so Im running RC2 currently, and wondering what the difference is in 1.0 ?
or 1.0 is the “official release” of RC2?
Yeah, I’m a little confused also. Are there major differences between RC2 and 1.0?
when following the upgrading instructions I forgot to activate the new plugins after uploading them manually. Instead I continued with all the theme changes right away [edit: on the ftp-server].
After all, I can not log into my MU installation at all – there is just a blank screen. I tried to bring the old files back in place – without success.
Is there any way that I do not have to re-install all of WordPress MU in order to get back my admin panel??? *argh*
is no more online.
Is there another place to find the upgrade instructions from rc1?
Thanks, but it seems that page covers upgrading only from version 1.0.
I need to upgrade from RC1 (that as I can understand is a more complicated task).
But I cant find anywhere online the instructrions that were in the page
Upgrade to BP 1.0.3:
Then follow the rest of the steps.
As always, make a backup of your DB and filesystem before proceeding.
