Upgrade from 1.2.8 to 1.8.1 ISSUE

  • Kierandru


    Please help?!?

    Last week I tried to update my site at work. Everything went fine until I tried to update the Buddy Press plugin. How ever as I updated the website no longer worked and had an error up on screen, I cant remember but I think it was missing argument of some sort. I need to update the site and have done everything but buddypress at this stage. I am currently using the Canvas Theme Im not sure if that has anything to do with it. Please could someone get back to me. Cause if I update to 1.8.1 and it crashes I would really like someone to help me fix this. PLEASE HELP.

    When you do anything like upgrading an app and you’re not 100% familiar with the process you MUST read the documentation, looking for any guides or instructions to follow.

    You are attempting to update a really outdated version of BP, and you cannot do a straight jump to the latest stable:

    Read this page and link to upgrade process for 1.2 versions to 1.5

    And strong word of advice, keep current with latest releases of BP in the intervening version releases there have been a few critical security fixes that left un-patched leave your site and others vulnerable



    Thanks for the advice, busy doing my backup and will try upgrade it version by version.
    See if that works.



    Sorry while Im backing up, I already upgraded wordpress since doing that, this error pops up above one of my forms. Please understand I have taken over looking after these blogs and Im trying to update everything so any advice would be much appreciated.
