WordPress database error: [You have an error in your SQL syntax; check the manual that corresponds to your MySQL server version for the right syntax to use near 'order ASC' at line 1]
SELECT t.*, tt.* FROM wp_terms AS t INNER JOIN wp_term_taxonomy AS tt ON t.term_id = tt.term_id WHERE tt.taxonomy IN ('category') AND ( t.term_id <> 1 AND t.term_id <> 9 AND t.term_id <> 46 AND t.term_id <> 48 ) ORDER BY order ASC
So then I tried:
Reinstalled the earlier the previous version of WP. Still got the error message.
Restored my database to a version from a couple days before the upgrade. Still got error message.
Repaired my database from cPanel. Still got error message.
Tried again to upgrade to 2.8.3. Still got error message.
I don't know anything about MySQL. I did sent a support ticket to my host, Hostgator, and posted the problem on the Auto upgrade 2.8.2 to 2.8.3 "Installation Failed" forum at WP.org.
It doesn't seem that likely to me that Atahualpa is involved in the problem at all, but please, does anyone have any ideas about what went wrong or suggestions about what I should do?
