    Download the zip file and upgrade manually, as your automatic upgrade did not work.

    Did you do the manual update process or not? I’m talking about the whole thing not just visiting the upgrade page.

    yes I did all the instructions from Manual Update page.

    Ok now i got the site up.. but I got this MSG again at the top of my Cpanel

    “An automated WordPress update has failed to complete – please attempt the update again now.”

    I did this b4 & everything crashed.

    Any suggestions?

    I’ve got the same issue, so why has auto update failed and how do I update?


    Same happen to me. Still can’t update it, i also did the manual upgrade and this msg still occurs: “An automated WordPress update has failed to complete – please attempt the update again now.”.

    I got the public_html/x/wp-admin/css/theme-editor.dev.css message
    when I tried to update http://www.save-your-marriage.org automatically. However, the manual update worked fine for me.

    What I did was basically what I remembered doing when I upgraded to 3.0.

    I deleted the old files first, keeping
    wp-config.php as it contains the configuration data
    wp-content as it contains the themes, plugins, etc.
    images as it contains pictures I uploaded

    Then I selected everything but those three items from the new wordpress directory and recursively copied those into the root directory of the website. Also, if the .maintenance file was there, I removed that, too so that the website wouldn’t keep coming up with the maintenance message.

    I then ran the upgrade.php, clicked the button to update the database, and everything came up working fine.

    Anyway, this site was set up to be a plain WP site and not WPMU.

    I just ran an automatic update on http://save-marriages.com which I set up as a WPMU site on a VPS, and the upgrade went almost perfectly.

    I say almost because it came back saying the upgrade was successful. However, when I pressed the dashboard button, I got a white screen! Yikes. I held down shift and pressed the refresh button on my browser and the dashboard came back.

    Just to make sure things were consistent, I cleared my caches on the sites after doing the upgrade.

    I run a cpanel-based web server with a dozen or more wordpress users. ALL have the same prob with 3.01 upgrade. First it’s the /public.html problem then the css problem. I’ve updated PHP Upload Limits to 10 megs. I’ve chmod 777, removed and reinstalled /upgrade chomd’d 777… all the suggestions. Nothing works. Manual updates are a PIA and require excessive unbillable time. I’m recommending my users stay with 3.0. I additionally find the WP updates come way too often. Every other week there is a Dashboad Upload “demand” and it’s annoying, often unnecessary, time consuming, and – in this case – extremely problematic.

    Enable Dashboard “turn off notifications”. When a major release is required then we’ll deal with it.

    HEy yes i have EXACTLY the same error everytime i update my blog..
    now my blog is completely blan.. nothing at all just white.. even the vier source brings up a white page with no html at all..! this is so annoying plus i completely agree, wp rolls out updates quite often.. i am stuck with updating my wp every week.. every Fing week..! this is SOOOO annoying..
    please help me with the above error
    i got this error so i manually updated my wp.. deleted every file (obviously not the wp-config and databases) and then extracted the new files in the same directory and went to wp-admin/upgrade.php.. it told me that database need to be updated, and it updated the database… next it took me to homepage which waas blank completely blank.. the whole blog is down but dashboard is still accessible.. i really would have preferred the other way around..

    After my recent experience with wp upgrades.. (mannually installing my wp 3 times which lead to my settings, themes widges and almost evey change go away and that too for small upgrades.. like from 3.0 to 3.0.1!) I PROMISE I WILL NOT UPGRADE MY WP UNTIL IT REACHES 4.0

    Same error here… all was set to 777… I believe that automatic upgrade are not really well functioning.

    I was wondering how can I solve this issue.

    won’t upgrade themes seems not worth the risk and have no plugins installed but 3.0 to 3.0.1 just worked fine automatic
