OK, I attempted a Drupal upgrade as soon as I made a test area for my Drupal CMS installation, and managed to get it wrong from the start.
So, to recap, here are the upgrade instructions from Drupal (after backing up):
- Log on as the user with user ID 1
- Place the site in “Off-line” mode
- Disable contributed modules and switch to a core theme (Bluemarine or Garland).
- Remove all of the old files and directories from the Drupal installation directory.
- Unpack the new Drupal files and directories into the Drupal installation directory.
- Copy the backed up “files” and “sites” directories to the Drupal installation directory. If the original .htaccess or robots.txt files have been modified, copy the backed up versions of these files to the installation directory as well.
- Verify the new configuration file to make sure it has the latest and correct information.
- Re-install contributed modules.
- Run update.php by visiting /update.php
When I just attempted to upgrade, I leapt into step 6. So now starting again, following the above process
