Blank page after upgrading the dashboard of my wordpress blog (4 posts)

    I was running an old version of WordPress (around 2.9) and I clicked on the upgrade button in my dashboard and it seems to have upgraded to version 3.0.1 fine.

    However when I next went to login to my dashboard it says:

    Database Upgrade Required

    WordPress has been updated! Before we send you on your way, we have to upgrade your database to the newest version.

    The upgrade process may take a little while, so please be patient.

    Upgrade WordPress Database

    When I click the upgrade wordpress database button it just takes me to a blank page with the wordpress logo at the top.

    Any idea what could be wrong?

    Have you tried:

    - deactivating all plugins.
    - switching to the Twenty Ten or Kiubrick theme.
    - re-running the upgrade

    Not too sure how to deactivate the plugins when I can't access the dashboard? Or changing the theme?

    I've tried clicking on upgrade dashboard a few times but it just does the same thing.

    - switching to the default theme by renaming your current theme's folder in wp-content/themes using FTP or whatever file management application your host provides.

    - resetting the plugins folder by FTP or phpMyAdmin.
