    did you disable your plugins first? I see that nearly all problems are because some plugins do not work with the new version. Go into your files and rename your plugins folder and see if that helps...if it does you will then need to do the plugins one at a time to see which work and which one doesnt

    Thanks so much for responding..

    you mean rename my plugin folder from the FTP directory? As in rename to plugin1 for instance? Is that correct.. i tried that and nothing.

    Honestly, I'm sure someone will figure all of this out but I installed 3.0 manually on my server and I'm recreating. No time to wonder... this is the second time I've been burned by an upgrade so shame on me - got the point this time.

    Now if I were more expert at this stuff maybe it wouldn't be such a big deal. Good luck & keep hope alive!

    Ok... problem solved..

    I renamed my plugin to something else and reinstalled wordpress 3.0 manually.. tedious work but at least my blog is back!

    Thanks to 1stAngel and matius for your help :)

    I guess I will have to do a manual upgrade, too. Some of my blogs will upgrade and some won't. It is really frustrating.
