    Hi there,

    I just updated to WordPress.org version 3.8 yesterday and every time I visit my blog (www.iceybooks.com), I get an error message:

    Sorry!
    You do not have permission to access this location.

    Does anyone know how I can resolve it? I need to fix it as soon as possible :(

    Thank you in advance!

    Try:
    - switching to the default theme by renaming your current theme's folder inside wp-content/themes and adding "-old" to the end of the folder name using FTP or whatever file management application your host provides.

    - resetting the plugins folder by FTP or phpMyAdmin.

    - re-uploading all files & folders - except the wp-content folder and the wp-config.php & root .htaccess files - from a fresh download of WordPress. Make sure that you delete the old copies of files & folder before uploading the new ones.

    - running the upgrade manually via wp-admin/upgrade.php

    I did the first two steps, but how would I go about the second? Will it delete all my content?

    Thanks.

    Please see the page at the link I posted above.

    Will it delete all my content?

    No. Your plugin settings should all be saved in your database and should be retained for future use.

    Hi again,

    I'm sorry, I meant the third. But I got it working again! It's all good now. Thank you for all your help.

    I deleted all the files as you mentioned in step three and re-uploaded the files. I didn't upgrade via the fourth step, however. Somehow, the upgraded 3.8 version is still there...

    Thank you!
