WordPress Automatic Upgrade: Fatal error Cannot redeclare pclziputilpathreduction()

There is a minor WordPress update today, version 2.7.1. Since v2.7, they have introduced an automatic update feature that is part of the core WP. It will detect and compare your current installed version against the latest available in WordPress repository.

If you have v2.7, you should see the following once you login as admin.

Clicking on the β€œPlease update now” link should bring you to the upgrade page:

As a precautionary move, I first check that I have the latest backup including DB and I hit β€œUpgrade Automatically”. Normally it should update say upgrade successfully but instead I encountered this error:

Downloading update from http://wordpress.org/wordpress-2.7.1.zip

Unpacking the core update

Fatal error: Cannot redeclare pclziputilpathreduction() (previously declared in /home/myhome/public_html/wp-content/plugins/wordpress-automatic-upgrade/lib/pclzip.lib.php:5421) in /home/myhome/public_html/wp-admin/includes/class-pclzip.php on line 5498

 

I tried it on my other WP sites and encountered the same issue. I guess it has something to do with plugins as most issues encountered on WP are related to plugins. I went to the plugin page and inspected each and every plugin I have installed. And there you go, It may be conflicting with WPAU or WordPress Automatic Upgrade plugin by Keith Dsouza.

This plugin has the functionality as the name says to upgrade WordPress automatically. You just follow a series of questions and you will end with an upgraded version. This plugin has done its job perfectly prior to v2.7 version.

I deactivated WPAU and tried the upgrade again using the functionality provided by WP core. This time, it went without a hitch:

This just means the function provided by WPAU is so important that it got incorporated in the WP core. I very much agree. I guess I can say that WPAU can retire now and thank you very much.

    I have been surfing online more than 4 hours today,
    yet I never found any interesting article like yours.
    It is pretty worth enough for me. In my opinion,
    if all web owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the net will be much more useful than ever before.

    Hmm it appears like your site ate my first comment (it was extremely long) so I guess I’ll just sum it up what
    I submitted and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog.
    I as well am an aspiring blog writer but I’m still
    new to the whole thing. Do you have any tips
    for newbie blog writers? I’d definitely appreciate it.

    Hi there would you mind stating which blog platform
    you’re working with? I’m looking to start my own blog in the near future but I’m having a tough time choosing between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.
    The reason I ask is because your layout seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for
    something completely unique.
    P.S My apologies for being off-topic but I had to ask!
