Can't upgrade to 3.8.1 - dashboard goes blank (2 posts)

    Tried upgrading to 3.8.1 but when I click the 'Please update now' link, which takes me to http://www.myblog.com/wp-admin/update-core.php, it just displays a blank dashboard. The top and left menus are still there, and I can click into any of those items, but the main area is blank and the upgrade was unsuccessful.

    Any clues?

    I would pet a 'penny' that you used a caching plugin and it was misconfigured for updates. Pet a penny that in whatever time you set such plugin to cache, the issue goes away. If required, review the # of posts here on this topic and what happens when an auto update occurs with a caching plugin activated (poorly)...Remember, they do not test WP core with themes or plugins (not even the most popular ones)...so...as your host will say...it's a "script" problem.
