WordPress won't let me login, post pictures, or users leave comments (10 posts)

    My blog (www.NineDaves.com) isn't allowing me to login right now. When I go to the login screen, it brings me to this "welcome to the installation process" screen here:

    "Welcome to the famous five minute WordPress installation process! You may want to browse the ReadMe documentation at your leisure. Otherwise, just fill in the information below and you'll be on your way to using the most extendable and powerful personal publishing platform in the world.

    Information needed
    Please provide the following information. Don't worry, you can always change these settings later.

    Blog title:
    Your e-mail:
    Allow my blog to appear in search engines like Google and Technorati.

    This would be great had I not been a WordPress user since July 2008 who posts about 10 times a day. This morning it was logging me in and letting me post, but it wasn't posting pictures. And no one can leave comments now.

    I don't know what version of WordPress I'm using (I have to login to see that), but I know it's not the current version. It's whatever version was standard when I joined in July 2008.

    The source code on that page said WP 2.3.3

    I'm not sure what to do with that Clayton. It downloads it but doesn't open on my computer.

    Need to repair, at least, your wp_options database table.

    Backup your database. See Backing_Up_Your_Database.

    Then REPAIR your database table wp_options. Easiest way to repair your tables is vis phpMyAdmin when seeing all tables, select the wp_options tables, then select Repair tables from the pull-down box.

    Thanks MichaelH. I was on the phone with Yahoo, and they were able to restore all posts, but not my pages. They said one of my files was corrupt, and probably did a repair like you did.

    Although I've gone through the instructions to back up my database, I'm still unsure how to do it. I'm hoping someone responds to my WordPress jobs post and will teach me!
