    I had a message at the top of my wordpress when I was logged in and it said upgrade now to version. I hit the upgrade button but after I finished my entire site was gone. What do I do and how do I get it back.

    Below is the html version of what is on my site now.

    PHP Error Message

    Warning: require_once(/home/a3793811/public_html/wp-content/plugins/contact-form-7/settings.php) [function.require-once]: failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /home/a3793811/public_html/wp-content/plugins/contact-form-7/wp-contact-form-7.php on line 74

    Hi,

    By any chance did you first disable any plugins before the upgrade? This article will really be helpful: Updating WordPress.

    No, am I supposed to? You would think they would have said to make sure I disable plugins first.

    While it isn't a requirement, some plugins may not have been updated to work with the latest version of WordPress, so it probably helps to. This is a link to the section of the article that I sent you in my earlier post that talks about the topic: Updating_WordPress#Disable_Plugins.

    Okay I will do that in the future. But, as for the situation now I can't even log in to update any plugins so what do I do to log in or get my site back?

  8. Use FTP to delete the Contact Form 7 plugin. See Filezilla and FTP Clients « WordPress Codex.

    If you still get errors, upload fresh copies of all WordPress core files and folders, except wp-content and wp-config.php.

    I cannot find contact Form 7 when I log in to Filezilla. No file wordpress codex. Where do I find it?

    It's in wp-content/plugins, see the error message you posted.

    Failed opening required '/home/a3793811/public_html/wp-content/plugins/contact-form-7/settings.php'

    Same thing happened on this site. I tried to delete the contact form like above but it did not work. What do I need to do for it?

    This site has a different error. The wp-settings.php file can't be read.

    So, what does that mean? Can I fix it?

  14. You can upload all the wordpress files again.
