    @Karin: Looks like it’s installed in root unless you are trying to install a second blog in /blog?

    Hi. I’m trying to upgrade my main site, to WP 2.7.1 which is in public-html. I keep getting this error:

    Warning: require(../wp-load.php) [function.require]: failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /home/provbsco/public_html/wp-admin/upgrade.php on line 18

    Fatal error: require() [function.require]: Failed opening required ‘../wp-load.php’ (include_path=’.:/usr/lib/php:/usr/local/lib/php’) in /home/provbsco/public_html/wp-admin/upgrade.php on line 18

    I’ve posted a thread on the WP.org forum, but they just tell me to follow the directions. I have and I’m still getting this error. Can you help? I’m fearing I’ve lost my whole blog!

    @Marty Lutz: Your blog should still be there. If you want to send me a login to your site I’ll take a look at it for you. I need the login to your hosting account and to your blog. You can send it to educhalk [at] gmail [dot] com

    Hello! I followed everything up to this point but am getting the message:

    This either means that the username and password information in your wp-config.php file is incorrect or we can’t contact the database server at localhost. This could mean your host’s database server is down.

    What could my issue be?

    I found this to be very helpful. However, when I try to create my SQL, it does not seem to be saving on my Cpanel area…is there a way to fix this? I am willing to give you my password info to get in there and see what’s wrong if necessary…

    @Laurie: You would need to contact your webhost…you may be limited on the number of db’s you can create, otherwise, it should work just as illustrated.

    Yes, thank you so much!

    I had a corrupted zip file, but with your video I was able to troubleshoot.

    You’re a great teacher.
