    First off, im panicing!

    I was running version 2.1 of wordpress and decided, since I am bored at work, Ill do an upgrade. I followed the steps online, except didnt backup my current wordpress directory. I replaced all the filex that were on my server with the new wordpress files, except I didnt touch the themes in the wp-content folder. Now my blog has disappeared, there is no place to login, nothing. can someone please help!!!! Im freaking out!

  2. You'd normally login at http://gianstone.com/wordpress/wp-admin/

    But that's blank too.

    Redownload 2.1 from here: http://wordpress.org/download/release-archive/

    Overlay those files with the ones in your wordpress folder and see if that brings it back up. Hopefully that works. If so, you want to BACK UP EVERYTHING.

    Now, WordPress Detailed Upgrade Instructions for version 2.0-2.6.5 to 2.9.1 imply you can do a jump from 2.1 right to 2.9.1, though I know many people suggest you do 2.1 to 2.5 to 2.7 to 2.9

    Either way, make sure you have a good backup of the DB and the wordpress folder first.
