[resolved] Upgrade 2.6.3 killed my Blog - please help! (4 posts)

    last night when I upgraded my db to the latest version, something very odd has happened - it's vanished from the http://www.robbellblog.com url but you can still see it at robbellblog.com - I've checked my DNS settings at my host and the www should autoresolve to same ip.

    Further to that problem, my login screen has vanished altogether - from either url. I've restored everything from a back-up to pre-upgrade - all the files and the database, but the problem hasn't gone.

    Can anyone help? I've never had any problems installing or upgrading WP before!

    Thanks in advance,

    In the end, I deleted everything on the domain and restored from a week old backup - that did the trick! Then upgraded to 2.6.3 and it worked first time - yay! If only I'd seen the post yesterday that said that you only needed to upload 2 new files for 2.6.3 - could have saved a day.

    I might not be so quick to update without reading everything for 48 hours first next time!
