In a previous post, titled Another Problem with 2.7, I reported that my blog was not working after upgrade. Nearly 24 hours later, this problem is still not resolved.
Suspecting outdated StuffIt Expander as the source of the problem, I downloaded the most recent version. Then, I downloaded StuffIt Cleaner. I used the latter to remove all StuffIt files. Everything, including the copies of WP I had downloaded earlier and all aborted attempts at opening it, went into the Trash, which I then emptied.
I restarted the computer. I repaired disk permissions and restarted the computer again. I downloaded StuffIt Expander again, installed it, and it seems to be working just fine. I also downloaded the WP.zip file again. StuffIt continues to tell me there's something wrong with the WP zip file. One of the suggested causes from the Support page for StuffIt indicates the cause might lie in the compression software used to zip the files.
Now, something I did not notice yesterday, is the icon on the WP.zip file - a Gzip icon. I searched for Gzip, found the homepage and downloaded the software. It also will not open the WP.zip file, claiming that Classic is no longer available.
Once again, I am working on a MacBook Pro with Mac OS X 10.5.4.
What can I do to acquire a full copy of WordPress 2.7 that WILL open on command?
Thanks in advance for any more guidance anyone can offer.
