Support » Fixing WordPress » Forced to upgrade, now only main page works

  • I hadn’t planned to upgrade WP today, but I was just in my admin area and I encountered some sort of “forced upgrade” screen that said “This file upgrades you from any previous version of WordPress to the latest.”

    I couldn’t do anything in the admin area without clicking, so I went ahead and OK’d it.

    Now, whenever I click on post titles, comments, categories, page titles, etc., I get an error page telling me the requested URLs are “not found on this server.” In fact, I can’t seem to access anything at all other than my main page.

    I have no idea what happened, or even what sort of information I would need to include here to give you the full picture.

    I think I was running WP 2.0.1 — at least before this mess happened — and my URL is .

    I would greatly appreciate any help or advice you could offer. Thanks so much!

  • Well I still see a 2.0.1 blog.

    WordPress, in its native form, has no such button forcing you to upgrade.

    Maybe something happened with your permalinks or .htaccess file.

    Thanks for responding. Yeah, I was shocked to see a page like that — I’d never seen it before. But I’d figured it was some standard thing. Thank you for the suggestions — I’ll check those…

    I would try this:

    -Go to your dashboard (In your case:
    -Click “Manage”
    -In the darker blue area click “Pages”
    -Then choose edit on any one of them.
    -After the page loads click “Publish”
    –That should re-publish the page and might re-create the –page. As it looks to be that the page was lost during the –mysterious upgrade.

    (The content of the page should still be there, If not then it means that something else happened)
