Failed Update Forums attempt After Upgrading to 3.4.1

  • I tried to Update Forums on my WP Admin panel after upgrading WP to v 3.4.1. When I click is to update I get:

    `Your server may not be able to connect to sites running on it. Error message: SSL certificate problem, verify that the CA cert is OK. Details: error:14090086:SSL routines:SSL3_GET_SERVER_CERTIFICATE:certificate verify failed`

    Note that I am not using the https protocol for my site.

    (a) should I be concerned?
    (b) should I be updating my forums?
    (b.1) if so, is there a manual method?

    a) contact webhost re error

    b) yes. and as usual, backup database and server files

    c) download bbPress plugin, unzip, and upload via FTP/FileManager/etc. to wp-content/plugins

    So @mercime, if I already have bbPress installed and running, I should download it and install it again? It’s bbPress that drives this warning message?



    @frank13 my answer (a) was to your question (a) and so forth. So you should contact your webhost about how to resolve the SSL certificate error

    (b) I will presume you’re posting about updating the bbPress plugin if there was a nag to update it since Group Forums get automatically updated with the BuddyPress upgrade to 1.6

    (c) You asked about a manual way of updating the forums (bbPress plugin) and so yes, do it via FTP.

    all three questions (a) – (c) simply related to the same issue @mercime.

    I got a warning so do I really need to update the forums anyway? So what if I don’t? My question about being concerned was not to get feedback from my Sys Admin (which I am the S.A. for the site and server). WP warned me — so do I need to be concerned? The warning was cryptic with respect to WordPress/BuddyPress, not the server.

    An my manual update question was this — if the automated WP routine can’t update the forums, is there a manual workaround.
