2.2 Upgrade fail

Tried twice to upgrade from 2.1.11 to to 2.2.
Config: Apache, PHP 5.5, I've followed the readme files and upgrade threads.

After copying the files over to my host, I try to load vanilla and the server brings back a blank screen.

I've followed the Troubleshooting guidelines with no luck.

Any help would be appreciated.

After failing I restore files and DB to 2.1.11.

    A blank screen typically indicates a server error. Can you access PHP's error log?

    Downloaded the 2.2 package and re-installed. All good for now. =) No idea what happened but I'll take it. D'oh!

    Thanks for the help!
