Thanks for your reply. Here's the problem though - I already completed the upgrade. It's done. But now, I have access to nothing but the main page. Moodle recognizes users, logs them in correctly, but doesn't give access to courses or admin functions. So, everything looks great and goes well up to the point where you actually want to get into a course and then it all falls apart...nothing.
Again, I can see via phpMyAdmin that the admin user is truly being granted admin rights but when I log in as admin or any other user for that matter I get nothing. You might even try logging into a course yourself to see what I'm getting at - http://www.consideringeducation.net/moodle 1.7/ - click on the WSU course category and then login as a guest with the enrollment key "wsu"
