I attempted to move from 2.07 to 2.1 and have run into major problems. I first attempted the one click upgrade path via my host but I kept getting an error message via email saying my directories weren’t empty. Sure enough they weren’t but there were never any instructions to empty them in the first place.
As a newbie, I took the higher risk approach of following the instructions under Upgrading WordPress.
I’ve obviously done something horribly wrong because now when I load my blog’s home page I get the following php error:
Fatal error: Cannot redeclare timer_stop() (previously declared in /home/.lint/timkbrown/timkbrown.com/wp-settings.php:65) in /home/.lint/timkbrown/timkbrown.com/wp-includes/functions.php on line 865
With all my playing around, my blog is gone but I’m desperately hoping it can be recovered. With the deep mess I’ve dug myself, is there any way I can do a fresh new install of 2.1 and somehow recover my posts and comments etc.?
Any help desperately appreciated.
