blog not appearing after 2.2 to 2.2.1 upgrade (7 posts)

    I originally set up my wordpress.org blog back in May 2007. Of course, 2.2.1 was released quickly thereafter.

    I followed the detailed (vs. 5-step) instructions to upgrade my blog from 2.2 to 2.2.1.

    Once done with all the file uploading, I proceded to run the installation here:

    and got this message:
    "No Upgrade Required
    Your WordPress database is already up-to-date!"

    Upon going to my blog's home page, http://reginarivera.com/blog
    I get only a blank screen. All of the other blog pages are also blank.

    However, when I go to my WordPress Dashboard, I see all of the contents listed... Comments, Manage, Uploads, etc.

    Also, my PJW WordPress Version verifies that the update worked... The message on my dashboard says I'm up to date, whereas before I made this mess, it said I needed to update.

    Help! (please.) Any ideas?

    I am having a similar problem. I just did the install and was super happy everything seemed to be working. I was able to login and see my account, and I can see posts in my database, too. But then I decided to go take a look at the page and everything is blank:


    Any help is appreciated!

    Yep, exact same thing, mabbr. Please post info if you resolve the problem, and I'll do the same. Hopefully, someone will come to our rescue soon!

    I gave up hope of getting a timely response, and ended up rolling back to my previous WP version. (Thank goodness for backups.)

    Unfortunately, this is our first blog so we do not have a backup to roll back to. I'm so bummed :-(

    I'm sorry to hear that, mabbr. Who hosts your website/blog? They could probably restore the contents of your blog folder back to the version just before you tried to upgrade. You'll want to be sure to ask them to just restore from the back up your wordpress folder... Otherwise, they might overwrite your entire site... Not a bad thing, unless you've added lots of content since your wordpress fiasco.

    If that works out, SAVE a copy of your folder to your computer. THAT will be your backup. It's good to do that regularly, too, as your blog expands.

    Good luck!

    Oh yeah, one other thing, mabbr... If, indeed, you had the exact same problem as I, here's one thing you might want to do...

    Since you can still see your account, posts, etc., go to your WP dashboard and under the MANAGE tab, click on EXPORT. Download the file and save it.

    I did that and imported it to my dormant wordpress.com account. (I had been using reginarivera.wordpress.com before I moved it over to my own server with a WP.org account.) That could temporarily serve as your blog site, in a pinch. Keep in mind, though, if you add new posts AND you end up resurrecting your WP.org blog site, you'll need to export your WP.com files back to WP.org.

    I hope I'm not confusing you more than I'm trying to help you!
