V3.0 Setting gives error after upgrade

Jul 7, 2014 at 3:04 PM
I have a private site so can share link.

I followed the direction and upgraded my site from 2.9.1.0 to 3.0. Basically I create a new directory and deleted/copied the App_Data directory over keeping the labels.txt file.

I can log into the site and content/custom/user works. Dashboard just give me the login screen. Settings gives a "Error loading settings" error and the fields are blank. Tools->permissions shows no errors.

Looking at the F12 network monitor I have errors with api/lookups (500) and a bunch of 404 errors on /admin/%7B%7BSiteVars.RelativeWebRoot%7D%7Dcontent/images/avatars/monsterid.png

I did not copy widgets or themes because I just use the defaults anyways.

Any suggestions on where to look?

Facing the same issue after upgrade.
If I go to any settings page, it just throws an error.

quick look at F12, revealed that its throwing server error for blog/api/lookups.

Add all rights to "administrators" role and check if it fixes this issue. Could be that some data in lookups require permission that admin don't have.
