When I try to upgrade to 3.2 on my site I get an error saying the drafts table already exists. Does anyone know of any plugins that use such a table? I'm trying to sort out what's going on.


Sounds like you didn't completely roll the database back to 3.1 before re-trying the update. That table probably got created the first time you tried to update to 3.2.

Make sure the database is wiped 100% clean before rolling back to your 3.1 database. Then try updating again.

  • That'll be hard to do with a prod database, but I'll see what I can do with it. Do you have any suggestions?

  • Do you have a copy of the database from before your first attempt?
