Home Forums ACF PRO 5.5.1 – database update 'loop' Reply To: 5.5.1 – database update 'loop'

  • That’s really odd, and I like puzzles.

    ACF is looking in the database in the options table for anything that looks like "{$taxonomy_slug}_{$term_id}_%", and since it’s a MySQL the underscore can actually represent any character… it’s an error that many people make. At any rate, it’s assuming that anything it finds that matches this is a field and it updates the term with whatever is represented by the %.

    Either it’s timing out during the process somehow or there is some kind of a PHP error happening that’s preventing it from completing.

    Since you haven’t actually used ACF for any fields yet, none of it probably makes any difference whatsoever. Somehow along the way here I was thinking that you had a lot of ACF data that needed to be moved, but now I’m leaning more toward a PHP error that’s causing it to fail.
