i put up a site for a friend a couple of years ago and he has been running it. he has never upgraded and now he is locked out. all users and passwords go to a white page. he has over 57,000 spam users. i have backed up his db. i can access via cpanel. i wish to upgrade his wp and give him a new theme. this is pro bono as it should not take too much time.
can this site be saved ?
how can i get in ? then what ?
