Upgrade from 2.7 to 2.9 (3 posts)

    I finally got the courage to chose the 'automatic upgrade' option to upgrade from 2.7.1 to 2.9.1

    After waiting for an hour, I realized the automatic option would not be quick.

    I let it run all night, and it seems the blog is back online, so I was hopeful everything was okay.

    When I log into the admin panel, I get this error:
    Fatal error: Call to undefined function set_screen_options() in /PATH-REMOVED/wp-admin/admin.php on line 49

    The upgrade hasn't stopped - that screen is still blank and the Firefox spnning circle is still spinning.

    I"m afraid if I kill it, I'll be in worse shape than I am now.

    What do I need to do to:
    a) ensure the install is finished

    b) regain the ability to login to the admin panel?

    I should have just left everything alone as 2.7.1 was working just fine. Sigh.

    Thanks for any suggestions.

    I commented out line 49 in admin.php, tried to log in again and now get this error:

    Fatal error: Call to undefined function esc_html() in /PATH-REMOVED/wp-admin/admin-header.php on line 13

    I get the feeling I am so very screwed. On the bright side, the blog is online - I just can't reach the admin panel.
