I have upgraded magento C.E 1.5 to through magento connect after the upgrade, I logged in to the magento admin panel and all the menus are disappeared. I am unable to track as there is no error but none of the menus are shown. Please help if anyone have already gone through with the same problem.

Thanks in advance.

  • Verify that all permissions for your installation are correct and that they are assigned to the correct user. magentocommerce.com/wiki/groups/227/resetting_file_permissions

Looks like you don't have permissions for your admin user. Try to delete the cookies for that domain to get a new php session.

Or recreate the tables for admin users/roles. Have a clean install of Magento 1.8 and import those clean good tables. Do this on a test/developing server first. And backup the database and code first of all, even if it's a test server.


After a lot of work i reload the magento with the backup and checked what i missed before and i found that the compiler was enabled and this time i disabled the compiler and ran the upgrade process again and now it's working fine. Hope it helps and save someone's time.
