  • Never saw that line in a WP upgrade. Do you use a maintenance plugin or did you use a plugin to upgrade?

    So, to get rid of the maintenace mode your site is stuck in after a failed upgrade, simply delete the .maintenace file from your WordPress root directory using your favourite FTP client.

    ok change of problem… I can now (thankfully) access my blog and admin panel, but the update did not work. whenever I click automatic update, it takes a while – doing something, then the side panel, header and footer comes up. then if I go somewhere (e.g. posts), the «WordPress 3.0.1 is available! Please update now.» pops up again.

    so I guess the problem is now: automatic update to 3.0.1 doesn’t work!

    It did for me. Did you have problems with auto upgrades before?
    Of course you can always upgrade manually…

    never had any trouble with it before.

    I’d go for manual (see “manual update”). It’s only a matter of replacing files.

    uhm… whenever I go to my blog or to my admin page, I just get a blank page now.

    what I did was delete wp-admin and wp-includes, then copy over all files from the 3.0.1 tar.gz, overwriting what was on my blog.

    fixed it. 🙂

    Any thoughts, I did the automatic update to 3.0.1 and of course I did not back up first, Then I got this error:

    Fatal error: Call to a member function on a non-object in /nfs/c04/h02/mnt/61503/domains/ on line 289

    I can not log into the back end either, it said automatic update and everything else worked seamlessly so I figured it was a easy update.

    Any Help is appreciated.

    visualflux, Try manually resetting your plugins. If that resolves the issue, reactivate each one individually until you find the cause.
