Support » Networking WordPress » HELP – I can't believe everything is GONE after upgrade!

  • I just did the automatic upgrade in WP and all of my pages and posts are gone! It’s totally empty and nothing shows on the page but one little tab. The template is entirely empty. Please see and let me know if there is anything I can do to get this all back. I have no idea how this happened.

  • Forgot to say that in my wp-admin (which works just fine) is an error at the top of the page which I am not at all sure how to correct.

    Here it is:

    The wp-content/blogs.php file is deprecated. Please remove it and update your server rewrite rules to use wp-includes/ms-files.php instead.

    I would appreciate any help at all!

    You have not followed instructions with upgrade as you need to make those changes in your cpanel
    you need delete blogs.php from root
    and in .htaccess file change blog.php to ms-files.php
    this is what you should have

    RewriteRule ^(.*/)?files/(.*) wp-includes/ms-files.php?file=$2 [L]

    Thanks a bunch. I did the changes but still see nothing on my blog.

    I see that you using some other theme may be the theme is not compatible try and change to default twentyten theme and see if that works.

    Actually this theme was working fine till yesterday when I upgraded.

    Any idea why all pages and posts disappeared? I can’t believe I have to totally rebuild my site

    Looks like no theme is working. It’s just all gone overnight. Unbelievable.

    did you try the default theme if its working with upgrade.

    I do not think all is lost its just figuring out why the themes are not working

    Check your database. If the wp_posts tables are there, you’re not lost.

    Now, you DID take a backup before upgrading, as is recommended, right? Right?

    what version of wordpress you were using before and what did you upgrade to.

    I’m not great on the backend of wp so not sure how to check the tables. And no I didn’t backup. I’ve worked with wp a long time and always upgrade with no problems so a big mistake on my part.

    not sure what previous version was but should have been pretty current as I try to keep it up to date. I upgraded to 3.0.1

    Wish I could just undo and revert back to my previous one.

    Have tried to deactivate all plugins as one of those plugins may be conflicting.

    the only other way I can think of is to go in server and check your database see if you have not lost all your data and as I am sure you must have lots of data and debug from server side.
