Forced to upgrade, now only main page works (4 posts)

    I hadn't planned to upgrade WP today, but I was just in my admin area and I encountered some sort of "forced upgrade" screen that said "This file upgrades you from any previous version of WordPress to the latest."

    I couldn't do anything in the admin area without clicking, so I went ahead and OK'd it.

    Now, whenever I click on post titles, comments, categories, page titles, etc., I get an error page telling me the requested URLs are "not found on this server." In fact, I can't seem to access anything at all other than my main page.

    I have no idea what happened, or even what sort of information I would need to include here to give you the full picture.

    I think I was running WP 2.0.1 -- at least before this mess happened -- and my URL is http://www.nancy.cc/ .

    I would greatly appreciate any help or advice you could offer. Thanks so much!

    -Nancy

    Well I still see a 2.0.1 blog.

    WordPress, in its native form, has no such button forcing you to upgrade.

    Maybe something happened with your permalinks or .htaccess file.

    Thanks for responding. Yeah, I was shocked to see a page like that -- I'd never seen it before. But I'd figured it was some standard thing. Thank you for the suggestions -- I'll check those...

    I would try this:

    -Go to your dashboard (In your case: http://www.nancy.cc/wp-admin/)
    -Click "Manage"
    -In the darker blue area click "Pages"
    -Then choose edit on any one of them.
    -After the page loads click "Publish"
    --That should re-publish the page and might re-create the --page. As it looks to be that the page was lost during the --mysterious upgrade.

    (The content of the page should still be there, If not then it means that something else happened)
