    I just upgraded to 2.9.2, it read the upgrade was successful. So I clicked on the admin area and everything went blank. Then I cleared my cache and tried to login again and it's blank.
    Has anyone experienced this issue? I am lost as to what to try next, I keep logging in and it's still blank.

    Thanks for any assistance anyone can offer.

    ftp to site or use host's file manager to rename plugins folder, thus deactivating all plugins
    if a plugin is borked this will let you log in

    if this doesn't help, rename your theme folder, thus activating default theme
    if a theme error this will let you log in

    if neither of these work, try these memory options

    1. Try adding this line to your wp-config.php file:
    define('WP_MEMORY_LIMIT', '64M');
    2. If you have access to your PHP.ini file, change the line in PHP.ini
    If your line shows 32M try 64M:
    memory_limit = 64M ; Maximum amount of memory a script may consume (64MB)
    3. If you don't have access to PHP.ini try adding this to an .htaccess file:
    php_value memory_limit 64M
    4. Talk to your host.

    Try re-activating the plugins one by one - checking the site every every reactivation - until you find the problematic plugin(s).
