Update to 1.1.9 404ed my site

Recommended Posts


(Correction - Update was to 1.9.1 not 1.1.9, but unable to correct in title above)


I did the monthly update for my 2 sites - plugins, WP, theme - and when I was finished my site gave me a 404 error page with some info about needing a dms folder.  I looked in the themes folder and my child theme folder was there but instead of a dms folder there was a tmp folder.  When I changed the name of the tmp folder to dms my site came up, for both sites.


However, when I tried to go to any page or post on the site I got a 404 error.  Fortunately I always backup just prior to doing updates so I just restored the backup and the sites both are totally fine now.  But I can't update the DMS theme.


What could be causing this?


I tested the site after updating all the plugins and it worked fine; I tested the site after updating WP to 4.0.1 and it worked fine.  It was only after doing both of those and then updating the DMS theme that it broke.


Sites are clearwaterbeachcondosforsale.com and searchclearwaterhomes.com.  Both are now back to DMS 1.8 so they are not currently showing the 404 error issues.

Hi Ron,


Unfortunately, I am unable to recreate any of my test sites having a 404 issue when updating to 1.9.1 and as we are unable to see the issue you're having as you have restored from a backup, I am not sure how we can provide assistance, unless you update again.

However, as I mentioned above, there should be no issue updating to 1.9.1, if this was the case, I recommend you disable all active plugins, then perform the update. Then see if this resolves your issue.

Please search our forums, before posting!

      I'm trying to create a social website that can sell travel packages.
      Website URL: guanaima.com
      Framework Version: DMS 2
      WordPress Version: 3.9
      Plugins in Use: WooCommerce, Wordpress SEO by Yoast, Custom Sidebar 
      The problem I'm having is that when I activate the BuddyPress plugin in the website I get a 404 error on the user relates pages. (The activity feed and the members page work fine). I tried to disable other plugins, but it didn't work. I also tried creating a buddypress.php file as mention in this post http://forum.pagelines.com/topic/31999-buddypress-19-no-content/?hl=buddypress but still nothing. Does anyone have any idea?
