WordPress 2.9.2 Upgrade

Hello all,

WordPress released version 2.9.2 today, which is a security fix of the previous version, in which logged in users can peek at trashed posts belonging to other authors.

If you have untrusted users signed up on your blog and sensitive posts in the trash, you should upgrade to 2.9.2.

To auto-upgrade your WordPress installation on the free plan, you should follow the below steps:

  1. Use the file manager in Vistapanel, and edit/open wp-config.php in the main WordPress directory.
  2. Scroll to the bottom and copy + paste this code on a new line:
  3. /* Fix WordPress autoupgrades on Xtreemhost */
    if(is_admin()) {
    add_filter(‘filesystem_method’, create_function(‘$a’, ‘return “direct”;’ ));
    define( ‘FS_CHMOD_DIR’, 0751 );

  4. Save the file and attempt auto-update, it may automatically update or ask for connection information.
  5. If it asks for connection information, go to the Account Settings tab on VistaPanel and use the information under FTP Settings.
  6. It should then automatically update your WordPress installation and plug-ins.

    This method does not work for me. Size of the archive the new version does not allow to download it in free plan.

  • This is not working for me too… please help

    If the update is indeed larger than 4MB, the auto-upgrade won’t work on the free plan. You can do a manual upgrade though.

    Note that our premium plan does not has such limitations.

  • I knew the solution for this

    copy the code below and paste on the wp-config.php :

    /* Fix WordPress autoupgrades on or any web host that uses VistaPanel */

    if(is_admin()) {
    add_filter(‘filesystem_method’, create_function(‘$a’, ‘return “direct”;’ ));
    define( ‘FS_CHMOD_DIR’, 0751 );

    it works for me well…
    i saw this code from xtreemhost forum.

    This works great for me – please check if the apostrophes are correct – They get corrupted after copy paste!!

    Thanks great support guys

  • admin

    Please check what’s on line 22 and read the post of MAX (check if the apostrophes are correct).

  • admin

    Please create a new topic in the forums AND INCLUDE THE CODE THAT IS GIVING THIS ERROR.
    Without code, we can’t do anything…

  • Okay, I have created a new topic on the forums which includes my problem what it says on the file that is causing the error

    Here is the link to the post:

  • I fixed my problem and my website works fine now but when I put the code that Grace put, it didn’t work. It says fatal error on my site and when I remove the code it works fine. The apostrophes were correct

  • By mistake I have deleted all the files present in my ftp. Now it is creating problem with it. Can anyone pleas help me getting my control back. I have nothing on there. How to get my website back?

  • The site returns an error code on line 82. Line 82 is
    add_filter(‘filesystem_method’, create_function(‘$a’, ‘return “direct”;’));

    I guess there is something wrong with this line. Can someone pls. correct this.

  • admin

    This is a problem with the apostrophes…
    Change the ‘ and ” after copying and it will definitely work.
