I’d tried, and failed, several times to install the Yet Another Related Posts Plugin for WordPress. This time, I actually dug around the forums a bit to see why it wasn’t working, and now it’s fixed.
YARPP requires MySQL version 4.1 or later. Partly due to the age of my blog, I still had my WordPress database at 1&1 at MySQL 4.0. They now offer MySQL 5, and any new databases are created under the newer version. As I’ve used less than 5% of my database allocation, it was a simple job to create a new database, backup the old one, restore it to the new database, then point my
wp-config.php to the new DB.
(If it still doesn’t work, view theÂ source to your Settingsâ†’YARPP configuration page. Error messages are helpfully, if cryptically, embedded in HTML comments.)
I’ll probably still get a few “No Related Posts” appearing until the cache fills, but that should go away soon.
