I am getting errors trying to upgrade via cpanel and i also have database error on my admin page. I have found a few threads pertaining to this problem and did what they said. i checked with my host and they checked on the phpmyadmin area
here is the error messsage i receive on my admin page..
WordPress database error: [Table './wp_comments' is marked as crashed and last (automatic?) repair failed]
SELECT COUNT(*) FROM wp_comments WHERE comment_approved = '0'
Here is the error i get trying to upgrade...
database is not working properly and the creation of a
database backup file has failed. Please contact the sysadmin for furtherassistance. Include this message for reference.,The initial installation has not been modified.
And here is the reply back from my host...
"I have also tried upgrading your word press, I think it won't do it because you appear to have customized it. The upgrade might overwrite your changes. "
is there any merit to what they are saying? it only took them 8 days to get to this point so im not all that happy with them at this time.
Thanks in advance,
