    I just clicked on the button to update to the newest version of WordPress and now I can't login. Every admin page sends me to a 404 error page.

    I am self hosting on godaddy.com

    The website is http://www.the8weekstartup.com

    I have tried to go to the login page at http://the8weekstartup.com/wp-admin but I still cant get in.

    Any ideas?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!!!

    Try to log in from there. If successful, or if at least it appears to log you in, then navigate to http://the8weekstartup.com/wp-admin/upgrade.php and try to finish the upgrade. If that is not successful, you may need to attempt a Manual Update.

    Being hosted by Godaddy, you may have another option. See this relevant discussion.

    I've tried disabling all the plug-ins via phpmyadmin, deleting all themes via ftp to force WP to use twentyeleven, but that just wiped out the site completely.

    I'm now trying the "rollback" option on the Go Daddy Application management page. I hope it works. Still can't find any other way to get into my dashboard with WP 3.4.2. Just an FYI to anyone having this same problem!

    Yep, using the Rollback option on the Go Daddy application management page worked like a charm. I have full access to my dashboard again.

    Which files did you roll back? I see where to do it, but not sure which ones to do.

    Never mind. I figured it out and it worked! Thanks Bmulligan!!!!
