Earlier, I made the following post to this forum:
Help: I am upgrading a Pre Version 1, RC1 version of WPMu to the most recent release. I followed the instructions carefully, moving all the files in the wp-inst folder to the root directory and overwrote all but wp-cont and wp-config.php.
I am running the upgrade script, but I am getting the following error message:
Fatal error: Call to a member function on a non-object in /home/blogpeo1/public_html/wpmu-settings.php on line 72
Any and all advice would be appreciated.
I did not receive a single reply, which tells me that either this has stumped the panel, or no one who knows anything bothered to read the forum today. Fine.
So, I went back to another post, in which moderator drmike suggested the following:
<b>blockquote>How many sites are in there? Do you have any custom code in there?
I'm tempted to suggest backing everything up, deleteing the old code, uploading the new code, and then running the upgrade script from within Site Admin.
At this point, because I have everything backed up, I am willing to try anything. So here's what I think it being suggested: remove the old files, unload the new files and install the new version of WPMu, and then install it like I was installing it for the first time. Or do I save and keep config.php
Correct? If so, do I tell the installation program to create a new data base? I'm assuming I'll still use the databases I already have for all my member blogs.
Additional questions: I notice that my current WPMu stores all member uploaded files in a blog.dir folder within wp-content. I'm assuming I restore those (along with the entire wp-content folder) after upload the installation.
Again, my thanks in advance for any direction.
