    After upgrading from version 1.2 to 1.5.1.2 through cPanel, when I open the page I receive this error and I can not reach even the Admin Panel.

    Any idea how I can solve this problem? Or, have I lost all the posts?

    Regards

    I have checked the user name, database name and host name and they are same as the MySQL ones.

    Also I checked the database and it is also running. What else left?

    Can you go to the database through your cPanel or phpMyadmin?

    Ooops simultaneous post... have you tried manually upgrading instead? someone else just mentioned that they had a problem with their fantastico upgrade, but then it worked fine when done manually.

    I am afraid I do not have any knowledge to do that manually. Is it something complicated? Is there any tutorial to do that?
