Upgrade Woes

The server software is being upgraded, and my weblog doesn’t like it.

Photopress is the most notable casualty among the plugins. Since most of the photos I’ve posted here have been entered via Photopress, that means most of the photos now have silently disappeared.

I’ll be working on this, but a few other things still have higher priority. It may be a few days.

Update: Did an upgrade to WP 2.2.2 and updated the Photopress settings. Things seem better now.

    I wondered where you had disappeared to. Your RSS feed seemed to have gone.

    I think I may be having issues similar to what you faced. How did you deal with the preg_match error? And how did you update Photopress settings?

    I was running WP 2.1.0 when I was having the preg_match errors. I did the usual upgrade process to a newer version, in this case, WP 2.2.2: turn off plugins, backup database, setup new files, run upgrade.php, turn on plugins. That settled the preg_match error I was having. Somehow, though, all my configuration for Photopress went away. I had to fill in every field in Options:Photopress in the WP administration interface and save it. That got me to where pictures were served. But links to pictures weren’t working; I had to go to Options:Permalinks and “Update Permalinks” before that worked again.

    I asked about this on the WordPress support forum, but nobody had answered by the time I took the steps I mentioned just above.
