[resolved] Blank page on upgrade to 2.7- admin goes to other blog (2 posts)

    I will never ever ever believe that there is any easy upgrade in WordPress. THERE NEVER IS. It never works. Info is sparse, errors common, etc.

    Trying to upgrade from 2.5.1 to 2.7 through ftp. I read many instructions. Looks easy, isn't. First, many errors, then a white screen.

    I had disabled all plugins. I backed up. I moved over wp-admin and wp-includes. I was afraid to move over wp-content, for fear it would override my content. Then I read here that I should move over some. (although I see now, in this page that I shouldn't have deleted wp-config. I'm sorry.)

    At this point, when I go to mycurrentblog/wp-admin/ it logs into ANOTHER OF MY BLOGS which I also used 2.7 in. There is nothing in htaccess to forward one blog to another. Is there a file I can change so it lets me input my old login words, or is that gone?

    Please help!

    Okay, note for my future upgrades: make a screen shot of your old theme, because you'll never see it again. Half of my saved themes, ones that I had worked on (in css), and looked great, are now broken on 2.7, and I have no idea how to fix them. :( All that work for nothing.

    Only 24 hours later, it's upgraded. I had moved over my config.php that I used for my other blog, with a diff database, so it was trying to get me over to that one in my login screen. And the reason it had a white screen...theme is broken, forever.
