Wordpress Blog Problem

by Scott Muzzey 13 replies
I have a relatively new blog that I am starting to get off the ground. Today when I went to go post, an error message occurred. There is a problem with php. I cannot get into the dashboard. I can start over if necessary (I have back-ups) but want to know if there is something easier I can do instead. I know very little about php. Any thoughts? If you can help, I can PM you with more info.

    Is it being caused by a plugin you installed? Look in the error message. Happened to me a couple of times I couldn't log in through the dashboard to deactivate the script. I had to delete by FTP and then reinstall it then everything was back to normal.

    It is not from a plug-in. Everything worked fine yesterday. I backed up everything. Today it doesn't work. I can't figure it out.

    It is from the admin.php file.

      Scott,

      Post the exact message you are getting...just do a cut and paste. Often, it will tell you which line of code is involved, in which page (I think you said admin.php).

      Some of the better .php techs can look at your source code and tell you exactly what is wrong.

    Bring up admin.php in the theme editor and see if it tells you anything...

    It depends on the function admin_url()...something has changed about that.

      admin.php is not part of a theme. It is one of the core WP files, so you won't be able to edit it in the Theme Editor.

      ****************************

      What version of WP are you running, and has your host done an automatic upgrade lately? The reason I ask is that the admin_url function was added in WP 2.6 and did not exist in prior versions. So, it seems that maybe your host was attempting to do an automatic upgrade and it failed in the process. So, the admin.php file was upgraded to using the WP 2.6 calls, but the rest of the core files are still left at an older version. This would cause the error that you're getting.

      If that's the case, the only real solution is to do a reinstall of the version of your choice (I would recommend the latest version).

        I have the latest version of Wordpress....just did an upgrade a couple of days ago.

        Thank you everyone for the great advice. I truly appreciate it.

        I will post on the Wordpress Q&A.

    Hmmm, if you did not make any change, maybe your hosting does. I have some cases whereby hosting change some setting, and my scripts go wrong.

    If you suspect it is due to plugin, you can FTP to your account, remove those suspected plugin folder one by one. (Notes: you can rename the old plugin folder to something, then create a new plugin folder with nothing, check what happen).

    You can test out with your theme folder as well (leave only the theme that wordpress provide).

    Check also if your htaccess file is fine.

    If you need my help, you can PM me with your FTP information and cpanel information (ahh, you have to risk in trusting me with your information then )
