Footer Section disappeared after a failed update from 7.22 to 7.26

Greetings Drupal friends and community,

Token replacement not working

We recently upgraded our site from Drupal 6 to Drupal 7. We were using auto-nodetitle on D6, and it was working great. When we did the upgrade, I added auto-nodetitle again, but it doesn't work. Instead of replacing the tokens correctly, it simply saves the token text as the title - [field_first_name-formatted] [field_last_name-formatted] instead of John Doe. I can't figure this out for the life of me.

Core modules in /sites/all/modules - Now what?

While upgrading from 6.29 to 6.30, a friend mistakenly placed the core modules in /sites/all/modules. He ran UPDATE.php and all seemed well. Earlier this week he upgraded to 6.31, this time placing the core modules in their correct location. Now, no matter what he did, the site wouldn't budge from 6.30.

I asked him to delete the 6.30 core files in /sites/all/modules but now the site is down with an error message:

Fatal error: Call to undefined function user_access() in /home/svrpca/public_html/sites/all/modules/lightbox2/lightbox2.module on line 605

Need help with core update to 7.27

Sorry, this is my first core update, so I'm really worried I'll mess something up in a big way.
I'm using 7.26 on a Dreamhost account, and I have already installed a lot of modules and set up the page.
It's not live yet, but I would hate for all this to go to waste. The manual install seems like there's a lot of things that can go wrong.
Drush seems easier, but I haven't used command lines since 1997 and am not familliar with Unix shells.

What manner of updating would you recommend?
How can I be sure nothing will go wrong?

"Page not Found" after seemingly successful manual Core Update

Hello all:

I've recently tried to get back into developing Drupal sites after a brief hiatus but I keep having the same issue with trying to manually update Drupal Core past the 7.22 that I was able to install automatically via my GoDaddy hosting.
