This is my first theme I am using with WordPress and it’s been fun populating my new site. However I ran into an issue when upgrading the Genesis framework just now. Now my site gives the error 500 message The website encountered an error while retrieving http://localhost:19157/wp-admin/. It may be down for maintenance or configured incorrectly. I am using Windows / WebMatrix, and I have no idea how to remedy this, but I hope I didn’t lose all of my data. Is there a way to revert? Thank you.
Localhost is your own computer. Did you create the site on your own machine and then publish it to the web? Do you have ftp access at all to where your site is hosted?
It’s all hosted on my own computer for now until I publish it to my ftp server.
I have access to all the wp cms content too.
I apologize, don’t know where the log location is.
However, to narrow it down, I clicked on Upgrade Now for the new Genesis update, it said it was installing and it failed to copy a file or something, or access the folder where it needed to extract the files. Assuming it was something that gets reverted or not harm the entire site, it actually broke my wp-admin and my site in general.
Thank you very much. I shall try that as soon as I finish with SP support over why I can log into these forums but can’t use my.studiopress. Basically I’ll redownload it and replace the content in /themes/genesis. Thanks again
EDIT : If it’s just replacing files in the Genesis theme folder, why is everything including wp-admin broken then?
