Please help. My predecessor setup our site and I am unfamiliar with PHP or how our files/directories were setup but I gather the standard defaults were used. I was attempting to do the upgrade (2.5.1 to 2.7) through the WP wizard and received the errors below. I see others have had similiar problems but I'm unclear of the resolution. Is the wp-load.php in the wrong directory? It currently resides in(/public_html/wpau-backup/wordpress/wp-load.php) and I copied it to (/public_html/wp-admin/wp-load.php) but still received the error message.
Any help would be appreciated. Please deliver in novice language. Thx!
