After spending too many hours trying to upgrade both theme and WP, I turn myself to you for some help.
I'd like to update WP from 2.9.2 to 3.4 or 3.5.
At the same time, I'd like to upgrade the Atahualpa theme from 3.4.6 to a more recent version.
I downloaded everything locally to do some testing so I can't show you anything.
Here is what I tried:
1) Keep current WP version and manually upgrade to Atahualpa 3.7.1
--> When I click the Activate link in the wp back end, I get a server error:
The website encountered an error while retrieving http://localhost:8888/vindjeuprd3/wp...activated=true. It may be down for maintenance or configured incorrectly.
HTTP Error 500 (Internal Server Error): An unexpected condition was encountered while the server was attempting to fulfill the request.
2) Keep current WP version and manually upgrade to Atahualpa 3.5.1
I figured that may be the step was to big so I manually updated to Atahualpa v3.5.1. Here, all looks fine in the back-end bat when reloading the page, all is blank (except the background color)
I still have control on the back end so I switch back to 3.4.6 and all is back to normal.
Could you advice on how to proceed? Should I try an earlier version?
I di-activated all plugins, in case of.
Should I upgrade WP first and then Atahualpa?
For info, here are the plugins I use:
Simple Tags 22.214.171.124
Shortcode Exec PHP 1.1
More Fields 1.5.1
Alphabetical list 1.0.3
Wordpress PostViews 1.62
I hope you can help.
Thanks in advanced.
