    I had a message to upgrade my WordPress and now I can't access my dashboard. I receive the following error:

    Warning: call_user_func_array() expects parameter 1 to be a valid callback, function 'wp_authenticate_spam_check' not found or invalid function name in D:\Hosting\11890113\html\wp-includes\plugin.php on line 173

    Try:
    - switching to the default theme by renaming your current theme's folder inside wp-content/themes and adding "-old" to the end of the folder name using FTP or whatever file management application your host provides.

    - resetting the plugins folder by FTP or phpMyAdmin.

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

    - running the upgrade manually via wp-admin/upgrade.php

    I can't access the site though...how do I do any of this if it won't let me log in? It tells me I have a wrong username or password.

    Please try reading my post above. None of the suggestions made require you to login to your WordPress dashboard.

    I'm at a complete loss. I don't have folders or anything...I do everything online.

    I access my site/dashboard with this link: http://twogirlsandasportsbar.com/wp-login.php

    Same problem as stated here....

    Parse error: syntax error, unexpected '<' in /home/health/public_html/wp-content/themes/silverorchid/widgets/twitter.php on line 15

    I see this everytime I attempted to access my site.

    I went to the cPanel and open the File Manager and do what you said above. The first two instructions, I was able to do it. But the next two instructions like the re-uploading and running the upgrade manually, am not really sure what do you mean by that.

    Can you please be specific more and tell me the step by step process? I am now able to access my site's dashboard but unfortunately I can't see what I have finished in as far as downloading the content of my site. It said that SilverOrchid does not exist anymore...but I have already posted one whole article and have made several pages (although without content).

    I am afraid to re-upload anything. It might worsen the problem. So please give me the step-by-step process. Do I have to remove all folders you mean and how do I re-upload...you mean to say, I need to re-install the theme again (SilverOrchid WordPress Theme) and re-do whatever it is I have done in the site...there's a post already...

    WHAT DO YOU MEAN BY THESE? DO I HAVE TO DO BOTH INSTRUCTIONS?
    - re-uploading all files & folders - except the wp-content folder and the wp-config.php & root .htaccess files - from a fresh download of WordPress. Make sure that you delete the old copies of files & folder before uploading the new ones.

    - running the upgrade manually via wp-admin/upgrade.php

    Here's the folders I have inside the cPanel under the File Manager (do I have to remove all these, how do I reupload if ever):

    (/home/health)
    access-logs
    cpmove.psql
    etc
    logs
    mail
    public_ftp
    public_html
    cgi-bin
    wp-admin
    wp-content
    wp-includes
    ssl
    tmp
    www
