Upgrade Errors: It looks like your database is out-of-date.
Upgrading bbpress from 0.9.0.2 to 1.0.2
I also have WP installed, same DB & standard table prefixes (bb_ and wp_)
This is my test site, so I don’t have ‘active’ WP / BB integration
I’m on Media Temple Grid Server
DB Server is version 5.1.26-rc-5.1.26rc
MySQL Client is 4.1.11
When I followed the instructions on Upgrading, I mistakenly went to ‘install.php’ instead of ‘upgrade.php’. I don’t think this was a big deal though, because I wiped out the install directory and tried a ‘clean’ upgrade – with the same results.
I get all the way through to step 3, and I receive a ‘minor’ error that my Database is out of date & needs upgraded. I click ‘okay’ to upgrade…and I receive this error:
ERROR: Could not establish a database connection
I have gone through my wp-config and my new (and backed up versions of) the bb-config docs, and all are pointing to the correct db server, host, username, password, etc.
When I did the first install – it actually presented me with my main ‘forums’ page (I knew it was upgraded, because of the new theme). My posts were there. When I tried logging into the ‘admin’ area of bbPress, I got the ERROR: Could not establish a database connection reply again.
What am I missing? Is the ‘initial’ mistake of running the ‘install’ versus ‘upgrade’ script my downfall? How can I recover?
