    Just tried the upgrade today.Now I get 'cannot establish connection to the db' error.
    deleted everything, then put everything up. Checked the wp-config.php file with my backup, everything ok. Checked the server side settings and evrything as normal, but still no joy. Any ideas as to what I could try? I can't get access to the admin panels, so I'm limoited to what I can do with ftp and editing files

    I should add - I first tried doing an auto upgrade which crashed halfway through.... then I deleted the files and upgraded manually

    also tried changing the 'localhost' setting to the name of the database server and now I get the following error

    Can’t select database

    We were able to connect to the database server (which means your username and password is okay) but not able to select the foundobj_fatgitworpdress database.

    * Are you sure it exists?
    * Does the user foundobj_2 have permission to use the foundobj_fatgitworpdress database?
    * On some systems the name of your database is prefixed with your username, so it would be like username_foundobj_fatgitworpdress . Could that be the problem?

    could this be a problem with the authentication keys?

    just sorted it out, there was a space in the 'define db - ' section of the config file
