White page after upgrade from bpress 1.03 to bpress 1.1rc

    Hi there,

    I have been trying to upgrade from bpress 1.03 to bpress 1.1rc. After the upgrade all I can see is a white page as my start page. So I have to delete the new version and upload the old version. Not what I intended to do…

    And there is another strange thing to report: I am sort of unable to deactivate bpress 1.03: When I deactivate bpress 1.03 I still see the grey admin bar and the buddypress section in my dashboard but bpress 1.03 is listed as “inactive” in the dashboard. However, when I activate it again, I get a “fatal error” but at the same time it will be listed in the “site wide plugins”.

    I suspect the problem above is somehow connected with this? So how to deactivate buddypress 1.03 entirely in order to upgrade to bpress 1.1?

    I really would appreciate any ideas!

    Thank you,

    Reiner

  • Delete BuddyPress and the /wp-content/bp-themes/ directory. Deactivate all of your plugins. Upload 1.1 and move the new themes, reactivate.

    Andy, thank you. but

    still not working. everything deactivated but the grey bpress admin bar is still showing.

    When I delete the buddypress directory from the server I get a blank page as starting page. Also white: after deleting bp-themes and bpress. Also white, when I delete bp-themes without deleting buddypress…

    When I upload the new version, still white… I somehow cant get bp1.03 out of the dna of my system…argh….

    thanks.

    okay, now I have tried to “automatically upgrade” and I get a fatal error:

    Fatal error: Cannot redeclare bp_activity_install() (previously declared in /web/1/000/014/981/12741/htdocs/hierinwangen/wp-content/plugins/buddypress/bp-activity.php:19) in /web/1/000/014/981/12741/htdocs/hierinwangen/wp-content/plugins/buddypress/bp-activity.php on line 52

    any ideas??

    thanks,

    You don’t want to upgrade automatically. Make sure you do it manually.

    socialpreneur: have tried it manually in all combinations as well (see above). really clueless, want to avoid to start with a fresh system because I would have to import all users, groups, forums and whatnot.

    If the front end is blank white but the admin section is visible, it might be because the theme directory has been moved from where WP is expecting to see it… try going to the appearance section and resetting the theme.

    You are not following the upgrade instructions properly. There’s a document linked on the news post on the front of this site to an in-depth article, but:

    1) Deactivate all of your plugins, but not BuddyPress (yet).

    2) Remove any plugins out of your mu-plugins folder.

    3) Change your theme back to the standard WordPress theme.

    4) (Now) deactivate the BuddyPress plugin.

    5) Delete BuddyPress off your server and the /wp-content/bp-themes/ directory.

    6) Upload 1.1 and move the new themes into /wp-content/themes/.

    7) Reactivate the BuddyPress plugin. Reactivate the BuddyPress theme.

    8) Reactivate any other plugins you took out in step 1.

    Hello DJPaul,

    wonderful – this did the trick. bpress 1.1.1 is running smoothly now!
