cannot log in to the wp-admin page (16 posts)

    Help! I've tried the following (thanks to http://codex.wordpress.org/FAQ_Troubleshooting#How_do_I_solve_the_Headers_already_sent_warning_problem.3F) but still with no luck.

    I cannot log in to the wp-admin page because of the "header already sent" error.
    What am I missing? I appreciate some pointers.

    1. I don't find any extra space or line at the beginning of the /wp-includes/post-template.php file.

    My error message is as follows:
    Warning: Cannot modify header information - headers already sent by (output started at /url/wp-includes/post-template.php:1) in /url/wp-includes/pluggable.php on line 876

    The post-template.php starts like this:
    <?php
    /**

    2. The post-template.php is saved as utf8 with signature.
    3. I've downloaded all my folders and files into a local directory, imported the .sql database into the local MySQL (after adjusting the directly info) to replicate the problem. The local version runs fine and I cannot reproduce the problem.
    4. I created a different directly at the remote site, copied everything there, imported the adjusted .sql database, and the same ERROR occurs.

    How do I fix this? I don't know if I'm using wp_redirect() or not.

    Is that the complete error message?

    As for error messages, yes; that's all I get when I try to log in while a plug-in (Complete Central Backup) is deactivated.
    When the plug in is activated, the following error SHOWS on my HOME page:

    Warning: Cannot modify header information - headers already sent by (output started at /url/wordpress/wp-includes/post-template.php:1) in /url/wordpress/wp-content/plugins/complete-central-backup/complete_central_backup.php on line 62

    Warning: Cannot modify header information - headers already sent by (output started at /url/wordpress/wp-includes/post-template.php:1) in /url/wordpress/wp-content/plugins/complete-central-backup/complete_central_backup.php on line 63

    Another symptom I noticed is that I cannot access my password protected page.
    The page asks for a password normally, but the url in the address bar has been switched to "/wp/?page_id=178" (not my test /wordpress/ directory where I clicked from) and after that, I get the following errors:

    Warning: Cannot modify header information - headers already sent by (output started at /url/wp/wp-includes/post-template.php:1) in /url/wp/wp-login.php on line 368

    Oddly enough, I can access the same page (enter password and display the page) on my localhost without errors.

    headers already sent by (output started at /url/wordpress/wp-includes/post-template.php:1

    That's the bit that was missing previously. There's an issue with one of your core files. What's the site's url?

    I see. esmi, thanks for asking.

    The site is at: http://injapanese.us/

    I'm testing in the /wordpress/ folder, and am getting the following error:

    Warning: Cannot modify header information - headers already sent by (output started at /home/content/i/n/j/injapanese/html/wordpress/wp-includes/post-template.php:1) in /home/content/i/n/j/injapanese/html/wordpress/wp-content/plugins/complete-central-backup/complete_central_backup.php on line 62

    When I try to log in, the following error prevents me from opening the admin screen:

    Thank you.

    A scan of your site indicates that it hasn't been hacked but can you post the first 3 or 4 lines of wp-includes/post-template.php here?

    I can't see any space or line. It starts like this:
    <?php
    /**
    * WordPress Post Template Functions.
    *

    Try re-uploading all files & folders - except the wp-content folder - from a fresh download of WordPress. Make sure that you delete the old copies of files & folder before uploading the new ones.

    I just did that, but the problem persists.
    The menu on the page at /wordpress/ still points to my /wp/ pages, but does that mean anything?

    Sorry? I don't follow. Have you previously moved this site?

    My site is in the /wp/ folder and it was giving me the errors.
    So I copied everything into my local site, and there were no errors. Other than the background and header images not showing, the local site works without a hitch.

    So, I created a new directory at /wordpress/ and copied everything there, to find that the error seen at /wp/ directory happens there again.

    As per your suggestion, I removed 2 folders using ftp from my test folder, which is /wordpress/, then uploaded the fresh folders of the same name from the version 3.5, and the error persisted. I then removed the rest of the individual files from the /wordpress/ folder, uploaded the same from the fresh package. The error persisted. I have not changed the wp-content folder yet.

    No! You cannot move WordPress around like that. You have to follow the instructions in Moving_WordPress. If possible, you need to put everything back to where it was before you started moving things.

    @dw4526: As per the Forum Welcome, please post your own topic. Posting in an existing topic prevents us from being able to track issues by topic. Added to which, your problem - despite any similarity in symptoms - is likely to be completely different.

    Hi esmi,

    It took me a while to get to it, but I followed your advice.

    I was able to restore my site by following the instruction under:
    When Your Domain Name or URLs Change

    ...and by using the [Search and Replace for WordPress Databases Script] as suggested.
    http://interconnectit.com/products/search-and-replace-for-wordpress-databases/

    Phew! Thank you.
