I've updated manually to WordPress 3.0.1. The installation otherwise didn't work as an automatic update.
I've scoured the web for hours, over a day now, done and then had to undo some things. I'm sure my post is one that will exasperate some, and if so, please just ignore it. I am not here to incur wrath for being totally clueless about editing tables in a database. I can login and create a backup archive, but beyond that, clueless, not opposed to an education, but haven't found anything bare bones simple in telling how to edit or change permissions, metadata etc, which other posts on this topic would seem to indicate might be where the problem is solved.
Though in Dashboard it says I'm using the current WP update of 3.0.1, if I go to the "wp-admin/update-core.php page of my blog. It gives the error:
"You do not have sufficient permissions to access this page."
I am not a MySql database guy at all. I don't want to touch the database at all if it is not the root of my problem. A misstep there opens up a huge can of worms.
I keep finding "closed" topics with this problem, so I'm having to post something new.
If I do need to go in and edit something in the database, how on earth do I do so? There are snippets of code given on forums, but not a single clue is given on how to edit such code, or even find the "table" data. If I knew how to do it, I'd take some screen shots and put up a tutorial on the basics of how to go in and do this.
If anyone has any helps they can give, I'd appreciate it. You must assume with me, that I hardly know a thing about MySQL Database and Configuration. It's all Greek to me, and pointers, places to read up are most warmly welcome.
