2.8 upgrade failed – crash and freeze
I’d HIGHLY SUGGEST that the upgrade notice BE REMOVED until more bugs are worked out. PLUS it should not say PLEASE UPGRADE.
It should say “Upgrade is currently rated at 43% success”
or some such thing. It should also link to a forum that
explains the DANGERS first.
Sure it always says “backup first”, but do you know how many people know how to use backup files? Personally, I’ve never managed a successful backup after 5 tries.
So here is how I successfully recovered.
I deleted all my sites hosted files except for
-wp-content folder and
Then I FTP’d up the new 2.8 files except for the wp-content folder.
After that, going to the site resulted in a database upgrade button.
Clicking that and the site was up and running.
