For some reason, WordPress wont let me automatically upgrade, so i am going down the manual root.
I have uploaded the contents of wp-admin and wp-includes, backing up the previous folders.
When trying to navigate to the frontend, or even admin i just get a 500 error.
I have disabled all plugins, and even reverted to the default twentyfifteen theme by updating the database options "stylesheet" and "template".
Doing this still produces the 500 error. If i revert the files back to before the upgrade, everything works fine.
Any ideas what the issue could be?
