Well, WordPress 3.0 has been available for download as a beta product until today. It went alpha. So I downloaded it having heard good things about its stability and usability. I’m especially interested in exploring the merging of MU into the base installation.
My upgrade was not without issues though: immediately after the upgrade the WordPress version of my site was dead and the Admin login area was as well. What to do?! After a quick hustle or at wordpress.org‘s forums, I went in and disabled my plugins folder by using my FTP client to rename it and create an empty plugins folder.
Everything worked again. I added plugins one by one until I found the offending one: Lifestream. When I have a bit more time, I’ll check for an upgraded version of the plugin.
