    I upgraded to 2.9 today. After upgrading I was able to login to admin (dashboard) a few times.

    But now all of sudden I can't login to admin. this is the 403 error:

    You don't have permission to access /gurblog/wp-admin/ on this server.

    Any help will be appreciated. Thanks

    Hi everybody,

    Looks like during the automatic update, all files inside the "wp-admin" folder probably did not get updated.

    1) I manually downloaded 2.9. Extracted it.
    2) thwn I uploaded the fresh copy of the folder "wp-admin" to my server. Now I can log into my dashboard.

    Question: is it OK to replace the wp-admin folder as i did without any other side effects?

    Please guide since I am neither a web developer nor a coder. Thanks.
