WP 3.3.1 out

Wordpress has a security update ==> 3.3.1



Thanks - this new version is now available for download.

I would pull that. I am getting reports that a lot of my clients can't access there plugins after upgrading and I am trying to figure this out.

Some sites are ok while most of them are not working correctly.

There is something terribly wrong with 3.3.1

I would stop any upgrading right now until I find out what is going on.

People are complaining that they can't upload and/or can't access there plugin settings and I have even found some that can't get into the admin side.

The wordpress support forum is full of issues.

And now I finding a ton of people that are downgrading to 3.2.1 that does work for them.

Is wordpress planning on releasing a fix for this?

To much is going to know yet. The bugs are coming faster then I can read and all the solutions given aren't 100% for everyone.

A lot are simply downgrading to 3.2.1

I assume that the script installer can downgrade WP if needed ?

Does 3.3.0 have this same issue?

I'm not sure... how long was that out before 3.3.1 did ? Was there even a 3.3.0 version ?

No version 3.3.0

The last version was 3.2.1 which worked for everyone.. even the bug report for that one was small compared to what 3.3.1 has caused. Plugins that worked for years stopped working for no apparent reason.

I think I am going to force a down grade on all my clients that are using wordpress and disable the WP script until this is fixed. Going to take me hours to complete that as it is.

I know something is wrong with 3.3.1 -- I have 2 plugins for wordpress that have worked for years and is not restricted to admin only yet in 3.3.1 I get a error message that says "You do not have sufficient permissions to access this page." I know my code and I know that it should work for any wordpress version.


I am active with WP code so I know what should and shouldn't be working.

There was definitely a 3.3.0 release a week or two back.

Virtualmin unfortunately doesn't deal with downgrades very well, so all we can really do is wait for a fixed version to be released and offer that.

There is a 3.3 in the repo.


But I have no idea if that one had issues with plugins. All I know is that 3.2.1 worked with all plugins.

There still is no official word why 3.3.1 is breaking hundreds of addons plus the other hundred bugs posted.

I have finally figured this out.

You need to make the cgi wrapper is fcgi and make sure that cgi.fix_pathinfo = On is set.

Everything worked perfectly for me after making this change.

If anyone else has this problem let them know of the fix. I know that really old VM installs only used cgi as the wrapper default.
