Unable to access WP-Admin after Upgrading WordPress to 3.5.1

  • # April 3, 2013 at 10:43 am

    Hello CSS-Trickersss:
    I have been using “Managewp” to control my WordPress blog, After upgrading i no longer can access my wp-admin. The blog still running but I can’t post.
    I checked WordPress Forum, they recommend deleting the **. maintenance** folder. (It didn’t work), I also use FTP to re-install and then run the **WP-Upgrade.php** it says NO updates needed.

    I have been working on a new theme and I need to apply it soon on the anniversary of this blog.

    Thank you

    I’m not sure about ManageWP, but you could try switching the theme to 2012. That’s should let you get in and update your plugins.

    Can’t switch themes without access to the dashboard.

    Hi this sometimes can be a sign of a Javascript conflict problem. Also have you tried looking at the admin in a different browsers to your normal one?

    Thank you all for the quick reponse, **ContentJones** , I haven’t really swished or change the theme yet. But I am afraid that if I do so the 2011 or2012 will look terrible. (It is a running website and I can’t offer to stop it)
    I am afraid I will lose the content. I haven’t back up anything. I only have FTP access .
    **ChrisP** I need to back up my database before doing anything. So should I go with this option or not?

    That sounds like a tight spot. If you only have FTP access, you won’t even be able to back up the database. If you have access to hosting you might be able to reach phpMyAdmin where you could do all of this.

    @mulaysmara, yes, you should always back up your database for any reason whatsoever, but as @contentJones said, you won’t be able to without access to either your WP dashboard or phpMyAdmin.

    Thanks @ChrisP @ContentJones
    Now I am able to backup my Database using my PHP Admin, whats the next step? How can I use the database to reset my website.

    You not only need to do a full backup of the database but also all the physical files of the website using your FTP client.

    All I did, I did activated all the plugins and changed the theme to 2011 and works just fine.
    Thank you all for your help.
