    Can you try upgrading manually?

    Hi esmi i havnt got the skill to do it manually yet, i found out why it couldnt find the index file or reload into the same folder:) my site was hacked and a file abby computing was in place of mine, i couldnt delete it till i deleted the data base in cpanel, then it deleted it ok, i reinstalled but still cant get it to up date so i will wait till my isp puts up a knowledge base vid or get them to do it, thanks for your help. steve

    Could not copy file.: /public_html/stevetaylors/wp-admin/css/theme-editor.dev.css

    Just FYI: there is no such file theme-editor.dev.css in any version of Oenology.

    If you were using Oenology when your site got hacked, the Theme files have probably been compromised, and I would recommend deleting your current install, and installing a clean version.

    Hi
    Thanks for the information, i did a complete delete, including the data-base and still have the problem, so i will wait it out for a while then go else where, probaly back to B2Evoution, thanks for the info.
    regards
    steve
