Auto Upgrade to 3.0 makes blogs.dir inaccessible? (11 posts)

    Hi,

    I just auto-upgraded to 3.0 - and now the blogs.dir directory is not accessible?

    I can access it from FTP - but not from the net. All files go to 404?

    This has happened on every site I have.

    I've tried contacting my host, but all they said they can do is restore my account.

    Anybody got any ideas?

    I just manually installed WordPress 3.0 and it didn't fix the problem.

    I also disabled all plugins, and that didn't work either.

    I auto-upgraded to 3.0 and now I cannot access my blog at all. I get this message:
    Fatal error: Call to a member function add_rewrite_tag() on a non-object in /home/content/27/5251927/html/wow101/wp-includes/taxonomy.php on line 289

    I contacted my host which is GoDaddy but they do not know what to do. HELP! PLEASE!

    Try manually installing wordpress - and see if that helps.

    PS - I think you got your request in the wrong thread.

    Sorry, where am I supposed to post this? And I cannot access my blog at all. So, how can I manually install it and if so, where?

    Go here to post a new topic: http://wordpress.org/support/forum/3#postform

    You would have to have access to your files on your server through an FTP account or file manger through your hosting provider. You would then have to download the zip file for WP 3.0 and upoad the files manually.

    Update- I still do not have access to the blogs.dir/1/files directory.

    I have pin-pointed the error to the word/directory "files"

    This has happened on all of my auto upgrades to 3.0 - but I did not have the issue in the RC1 & RC2 nightly builds that I was running before 3.0 was officially released.

    If I put the file in the blogs.dir directory without any subdirectories then the file is accessible.

    See here: http://hanover4square.org/wp-content/blogs.dir/4sqlogo.jpg

    It is still fine here: http://hanover4square.org/wp-content/blogs.dir/1/4sqlogo.jpg

    But if I move the same file to the files sub-directory within blogs.dir it is not accessible?

    See here: http://hanover4square.org/wp-content/blogs.dir/1/files/4sqlogo.jpg

    But if I create a sub-directory called file1 the file is accessible?

    See here: http://hanover4square.org/wp-content/blogs.dir/1/file1/4sqlogo.jpg

    To magically redirect it would be:
    http://hanover4square.org/files/4sqlogo.jpg

    So the issue is with the word/directory "files"
