Upgraded to latest version now can't see blog (but can login) (4 posts)

    I tried to upgrade from a very old version of WordPress (2.7.1 I think) to 3.4.2 upgraded to the latest version of WordPress but the installation failed. Luckily I had taken a back up so restored that version via FTP.

    Unfortunately I can no longer see my blog. I can access the admin panel at http://www.londonvenueguide.com/blog/wp-admin but when I try to access the actual blog page, http://www.londonvenueguide.com/blog I just get a blak white screen.

    Does any kind soul have any ideas what the issue could be? I'm at my wits end trying to resolve it!

    If you are upgrading from anything older than 3.2, you need to follow the instructions in Upgrading_WordPress_Extended. Try to carry out a big upgrade in a single step is extremely risky - as you've now discovered. Do you have a pre-upgrade database backup?

    Hi Esmi,

    Yes I did take a pre-upgrade database back-up, but when I uploaded it via FTP it still hasn't fixed the issue. Could it be to do with the WordPress address and blog address fields in my settings perhaps? Maybe they are not matching up to where the files are in my http://FTP...as for some reason when I log in to the admin panel the URL is redirecting:

    You don't upload a database backup by FTP. See Restoring_Your_Database_From_Backup.
