Issues after updating to 3.1- posts not able to be seen outside dashboard (3 posts)

    I decided today to update my wp site/blog. I did do a xml back up just before hand and then went ahead did an auto update. Everything works, but I can't see my blog entries or get to them outside of the dash board. When I'm logged in as an admin, all my posts and such are still there, as are pages, but posts will not show.

    So to put it another way, everything else seems fine (pages work, gallery works etc.) but posts don't...post to the outside. If I go to edit a post and hit "preview" or "view" a post from the dash board it just gives me a 404 error. Here is an example link:


    If I try to use a link that use to go to my blog I get:

    Index of /gideonklindtblog
    *parent directory

    AFAIK, it's pointed to a directory that doesn't exist. My blog is actually in a folder just called "blog". I am probably wrong, but it seems for some reason the auto update changed this part...so now my database is pointed at the wrong directory?!

    Sorry if this info is of no help. I appreciate any help, and even if you've just read this far. Thank you in advance!

    get the previous version you were running, then unzip it ... copy everything but the wp-content folder to where ever your WP folder/files are ... and when you go to open your site-admin it may tell you it needs to do a database update click ok to that and bam every thing is back up and running.

    good luck. I did exactly that after turning a few hairs gray and I got my wp back up. I hope this helps.
