Run ./script/server and then hit your site on port 3000 (or whereever
the server says its running). Try to go directly to /admin. If you
can access that page save the default settings and then go to the
themes tab. If the default theme isn't active, activate it and then
try going to the normal URL.
After successfully upgrading to 2.6.0 I came back the next day and my
site was dead. The logs were claiming zero-length responses from
dispatch.fgci. When I would go to the front page via the built-in
server I would simply get a theme path written to my browser. After
much messing around I discovered that no theme was active. I don't
know how I got into this state but there certainly needs to be some
kind of exception thrown to the browser when typo is in this state.
