Wordpress 2.5.1 Borked Maintenance ModePosted Mon, May 19, 2008 in:
I was going to write a nice blog post during lunch today, but I ran into some issues which I had to spend the time fixing instead.
Before I did the upgrade, I enabled Maintenance Mode.
Then I did the upgrade.
Then I couldn’t do anything.
None of the pages which I tried to go to, including upgrade.php and wp-admin, would load. All of them gave me Maintenance Mode messages. Now that I look at the plugin page, it seems it was only compatible up to version 2.3 of WordPress…
So I had to figure out how disable a Wordpress plugin manually. A bit of mysql command line and php deserialize and serialize later, I was back up, with my lunch hour all but completely consumed.
So here’s my post for the day, much later and probably less interesting.
