[SOLVED] upgrade/activation of 3.5.3 caused blog to go blank/white, can't login to wp

OK, guess I am in a pickle. I needed to update from WP 2.8.2 (at least that is what the wp-includs/versions indicates) but first decided to update Atahualpa from 3.4 since it should be easy to go back if I mess that up...

Except as soon as I activated 3.5.3 my site went to a blank, white screen. The blog address (intranet) shows the same, wp-admin shows the same, etc.

How do I manually switch back to 3.4 and start the process of figuring out why 3.5.3 caused this? All I did was unzip 3.5.3, copy a header image into the directory suggested in the readme, FTP it up to my server, log into wp-admin and clicked on activate Atahualpa 3.5.3.

Thanks.

activate 3.5.3 and go to ato->Export/Import settings and hit the 'Delete bfa_ata4' button at the bottom of the page.

But how do I get to the Atahualpa Theme Options when I go to my blogaddress/wp-admin/ all I see is the blank white page.

In other words, I can't figure out how to log into my blog anymore, as it is a blank white page (both the admin panel, and the blog itself).

you can go in with ftp and delete teh atahualpa353 folder or better, go into the atahualpa and rename index.php to index.old

activating the theme shouldn't have done anything to the wordpress back end. did you do the update automatically or manually? I've seen automatic updates time out and fail.

Well now this is interesting. Doing what you suggested (changing index to index.old and then deleting the atahualpa343 folder) didn't work, so re-ftp'd the atahualpa343 folder, still didn't work.

But your comment about how the theme upgrade shouldn't change the backend gave me the idea of deleting the contents of atahualpa343 folder, and uploading inside that folder the contents of my atahualpa34 folder that I backed up and poof, I am able to log in now.

Not sure what to do next though, as I do want to upgrade. I was doing this manually (unzip, move folder to staging server, use FTP to put the folder up).

I suppose maybe download the .zip again, extract it, don't add my header, and upload to see what hapens?

OK, learned my lesson and am hitting "Preview" now on the theme before activating. On a brand new unzipped folder directly ftp's to /themes/atahualpa353 when I hit preview it shows the same blank white screen.

Yet my Atahualpa 3.4.01 works fine, and previews for Wordpress classic 1.5 and default 1.6 look as plain as ever.

Is 3.5.3 not compatible with WP 2.8.2? Any suggestions?
