Accidental Upgrade to 2.8 Crash

  • This morning while making making some edits to the posts on the site I mistakenly clicked the button to upgrade to WordPress 2.8 then clicked for the automatic install thinking that it would only change my user experience. As soon as I noticed that the suggestion to back up all files I X-ed out of the installation.

    Everything was fine and it seemed crisis had been avoided for the rest of the day as I made other minor edits to the site including changes to the URL structure.

    Hours later, however, http://www.insidenewyork.com would no longer link to our site! For some reason however will still go to a page without all of the site’s theme.

    What did I do and how can I fix it? I don’t have the site properties or control of them.

  • Wow that sucks…The theme must not be compatible with 2.8. At least your posts are still there. Whoever has control of the site might have to do a downgrade to 2.7.

    There are so many people with issues that perhaps they will put of a script to do that with a link like the upgrade. If not, someone will have to do a manual downgrade or you can try doing the full upgrade. But I would definitely back up what you have so you at least have your content first. Good luck.
