Fatal Error on 1.0.1 > 1.0.2 upgrade

  • 2.7.1 version

    previously working BuddyPress 1.0.1 version

    A notice appeared on my plug-in area that said there was an upgrade to BuddyPress 1.0.1 to 1.0.2 – just click to install. I did this before to upgrade from 1.0 to 1.0.1 and it went just fine. So I did the same expecting it to run fine again.

    And BAM – it hung up for a bit, then returned an error message that said the install failed. I was still on my Admin screen at that point. But I clicked on any other area – I only see the error message:

    Fatal error: Call to undefined function bp_core_add_nav_item() in /home/ftpphoto/public_html/wp-content/plugins/bppicture-album/bp-album.php on line 134

    Visitors to the URL see this message upon entering.

    I see this when getting past the login screen too – I cannot log in to do anything now.

    The weird thing is – looking via the FTP

    I was testing a NUMBER of plug-ins – did not realize I had to disable any of them FIRST to do the upgrade to BuddyPress? I didn’t have to from 1.0 to 1.0.1. At any rate – I can’t disable them now – to try again if I can’t even get into my site?

    Please, any suggestions?

    you’ll need to manually delete the bppicture-album plugin from your server.

    That’s it? Just DELETE it? That seems simple enough.

    What should I anticipate then? Forgive me – somewhat of a Buddypress newbie…

    Whew Windhamdavid.

    OK. I just removed it – and now the site is back up and running. You just saved my bacon!

    As a result of removing it – I do see now BuddyPress isn’t installed whatsoever. Looks like a complete manual re-install (anyone agree on this?).

    Before automatic upgrading you need to deactivate your other plugins that rely on buddypress. It isn’t necessary to delete them.

    OK – just the ones related to BuddyPress. Gotcha. In this case, however – I put the cart before the horse and could not longer even access the site to deactivate the bppicture-album plugin! So I just moved it out of the plugin area to another folder on the site – and I’m back in business.

    Thank you so much for your prompt replies – of course – we had told some folks to go into the new site and test it – 30 minutes later the site was GONE (LOL!).
