That link goes to a 404 page.
Have you tried recopying the 2.7 install files?
Disabled plugins? (especially any editor related plugins)
Cleared your browser cache?
I have recopied the files, I am actually scared to do that since other problems are manifesting with the new version, it’s really not good. Cleared cache, I have no editor plug-ins. Not sure why 404.
At this point I would like to UNinstall the upgrade and go back to previous version, would you know how to do that?
I do have auto back up and have the previous files, but I am not sure how to restore those.
That would be the first place to start.
If you aren’t corrupting the files (like using binary FTP) you certainly can’t break things. Remember: Your content is in the database, it isn’t affected by simply recopying files.
Just be sure to have a safe copy of your wp-config.php before you start.
Okay, how do you recopy the files just run the auto upgrade plug-in again? Or do I have to do it manually?
what upgrade plug-in are you using? Since it didn’t seem to do a great job I’d say go manually this time. It really isn’t that tough to do 🙂
Perhaps over simplified, but:
- Get the download package from here.
- Unzip ’em on your local machine.
- FTP ’em to your host.

I am using WordPress Automatic Upgrade by Keith Desouza, always worked well in the past have always used it.
Now, I do not use FTP, I usually just add files and extract directly from my cpanel in hosting, if I upload them there will it automatically overwrite the current files?
