Site Will Not Upgrade & I'm Blocked From Logging In (3 posts)

    For two days (this is the third), I have not been able to log into my dashboard at all. When I try to, I get the following message:
    <<Database Upgrade Required

    Your WordPress database is out-of-date, and must be upgraded before you can continue.

    The upgrade process may take a while, so please be patient.
    Upgrade WordPress >>

    When I click the link provided, nothing happens. I've tried to update versions before and it's never worked - something seems to be incompatible and I get a 500 error.

    I would try some of the alternate suggestions on upgrading, if only I could get into my site. Please, can anyone help?

    Upgrading from 2.3 to what version?

    If 2.5.1, please review Upgrading WordPress and also review Steps 7 and 8 of Upgrading WordPress Extended.

    Making sure you have appropriate backups.

    Ok. Before I go ahead, I understand I need to backup, but can't find my htaccess file. I'm upgrading to 2.5.1
