Urgent WordPress Automatic Upgrade Update
By on March 29th, 2008

To all those who are using WordPress Automatic Upgrade and may have upgraded to WordPress 2.5 there is a bug which was reported earlier which breaks automatic plugin updates which is a feature in WordPress 2.5.

This feature breaks because of a library we used to handle zip files which is also used by the plugin updater. Since the plugin updater does not need to check if the class in question has already been instantiated I have changed the code in the plugin to ensure that the PclZip library is not loaded while updating a plugin.

Anyway for those who do want to continue using WordPress Automatic Upgrade plugin please update to the latest version first or else if you are already using WordPress 2.5 first deactivate the plugin and then update and activate it.

I take immense pleasure in saying this too that WPAU has reached version 1.0 and actively supports upgrading from WordPress 2.5 to any new version that may be released.

    Upgrade from 2.3.3 to 2.5 worked without a glitch for me.

    Thanks for a great plugin!

      Yes I also having same problem like this (wrong ftp data but I’m very sure I filled up the correct data).
      I realized that the problem is only happened at my blog which is installed at root. Others blog I installed at subdomain no problem with it. Only cannot automatically re-activate the plugin issue.

    This is a really useful plugin, especially for those of us who are not comfortable rummaging around in the innards of a wp installation.

    However, this time (upgrading to 2.5) I can’t get it to work. I get the message:

    Seems you have not completed the clean up process from last upgrade. Please click here to run the clean up process before continuing

    Which I do. Click the link, wait while the wheel spins — and then the very same message pops up again.

    Any thoughts? Hints? And thanks again.

    I thought I had posted this question already, but it seems to have disappeared.

    When I go to the automatic upgrade page, I get the message that the last installation needs to be cleaned up. So I click that button and watch the wheel spin. When it’s done, it takes me right back to the same message — former installation needs to be cleaned up before you can proceed.

    Is there a way around this? Any help much appreciated.

    Hi

    just tried this and keep getting the following in the automatic process:

    Fatal error: Call to undefined function: add_filter() in /home/booksfor/public_html/wordpress/wp-includes/default-filters.php on line 4

    Restored the backup and tried doing it manually and got a page of error faults.

    Any clues?

    Is this plugin ready for WP 2.5.1 yet?

  • http://www.learn-how-2.net Duncan

    I’ve just updated several blogs from 2.3.3 to 2.5.1 using this plugin. All completed in record time. Only issue was not reactivating the plugins. But that’s only takes a few extra clicks on the plugin page (and also gave me the option to update some of those plugins whilst there. I will definitely be adding a recommendation to this Plugin on my Learn-how-2.net WordPress “Getting Started” Blog.

    Keith-I tried to update it to 2.5.1 and it is stuck in updating the database. All my plug-ins are gone including the comment features. I have looked all over your site and wordpress support to see what to do. Any suggestions? Anna
