MySQL 4.1.2 and automatic update...
|Reported by:||nickbohle||Owned by:|
I've just tried to update to WP 2.9 RC1 via the beta tester plug-in and the automatic update.
Everything worked like a charm (files downloaded, installled, etc.), until I had to upgrade my database.
// Make sure the server has MySQL 4.1.2 1054 if ( version_compare($this->db_version(), '4.1.2', '<') ) 1055 return new WP_Error('database_version',sprintf(__('<strong>ERROR</strong>: WordPress %s requires MySQL 4.1.2 or higher'), $wp_version));
I know! By using the beta tester plugin, I totally forgot about the database requirements. My fault. And I fixed by downgrading...
But what is the reaction of the average WP user when he updates WP to 2.9 via the automatic update, he starts the database update and then, his database upgrade will not work due to an old mysql version. Result: he will be stuck with no connection to the back-end.
So, my question:
Why is there no MySQL (and PHP) version check BEFORE the automatic updates starts. A warning about an outdated mysql verion would be more useful BEFORE I try to install WP 2.9
