Upgrading from Lite Version Results in Calling to the Old Database

I am having trouble in that I have upgraded from the lite version which I was using for testing, to the Business License which has resulted in a problem with the events database.

When I add my first new event in the regular version of EE, it numbers it sequentially from last event that was in the lite version (20). Then I add a new event. When I go in an look at my list of events, only the latest one is displayed (21). So I cannot edit any of the events prior to the latest one.

I have deactivated and uninstalled the lite version, and installed and activated the latest version of Event Espresso.

I have done the reverse, to find that when I activate the lite version, all the old events still remain. I then delete all those events, and uninstall the lite version.

Reinstalled and activate the regular version. Same problem.

I tried to delete the 22 databases named “wp_events*” and reinstall the plugin, but that did not rebuild the database structure.

I have not FTP’ed in and deleted the “event-espresso” dir in plugins yet and reinstalled everything. Should I?

Please help; the internal site launch is tomorrow morning, with a live launch in a week, and I don’t have a working events calendar for the client to test.

Thank you.

Hi Leah,

When I add my first new event in the regular version of EE, it numbers it sequentially from last event that was in the lite version (20). Then I add a new event.

That is expected, the events are stored within the Database. This is so upgrading EE lite to Premium does not lose any of the events/data.

When I go in an look at my list of events, only the latest one is displayed (21). So I cannot edit any of the events prior to the latest one.

Are the events active events?
Is there anything within the ‘Live Search’ box?
Could you possibly screenshot the page and link it here?

There should be only 1 wp_events table itself with multiple rows for each event. You should not need to edit this at all.

You could try replacing the event-espresso plugin with a fresh version incase the download was corrupt somehow, although I doubt it will resolve your issues.

Thank you Tony, my responses follow.

This makes sense. It just appears that the Premium version is not “taking over”.

Are the events active events?

Yes, they are.

Is there anything within the ‘Live Search’ box?

No.

Tried that…

Find the option named ‘espresso_db_update’ in the wp_options table and delete it. Then deactivate and reactivate EE.
