[resolved] Fatal error on installation (4 posts)

    Hi
    I've followed all the install instructions, but can't get out of the starting blocks to set up my blog. I get the following error when running install.php;
    "Fatal error: Call to unsupported or undefined function require_once() in /sites/web5582/home/web5582/website/wp-admin/install.php on line 18"
    I've got all the WP files in the root folder of my webspace, I've retained the folder structure and I've tried uploading the files several times. Same error every time.
    I'd appreciate any suggestion. Thanks in advance.
    Chris

    That's odd. require_once() is a PHP function, not a WordPress one. What version of PHP does your server run?

    I've just checked (bit late I know). Ver 3.0.18.

    All sorted. Just needed the php version upgraded. Thanks
