    I recently updaated my wordpress magazine blog according to the newest release. However, after I logged in, instead of the dashboard pulling up - the following wp-admin page did:

    Fatal error: Call to undefined function is_network_admin() in /homepages/44/d215038298/htdocs/yfs/wp-admin/includes/template.php on line 1665

    I nearly had a hernia and I cannot get into the administration area now? Does anyone know how to fix this? Please help!

    Fatal error: Call to undefined function" is always a sign of an incomplete upgrade, where not all the files got upgraded.
    Do a manual upgrade by using FTP or whatever file management application your host provides.

    I completed the manual upgrade - updated wp-includes and wp-admin and now the website address is loading the following error:

    Fatal error: Cannot redeclare class Walker_Page in /homepages/44/d215038298/htdocs/yfs/wp-includes/post-template.php on line 1062

    OMG! Some how that made it worse. The only directories updated were the wp-includes and the wp-admin. Please help!!

    read this: http://wordpress.org/support/topic/troubleshooting-wordpress-31-master-list

    If you cannot log in try:
    - switching to the default theme by renaming your current theme's folder in wp-content/themes using FTP or whatever file management application your host provides.
    - resetting the plugins folder by using FTP or whatever file management application your host provides. Sometimes, an apparently inactive plugin can still cause problems.

    THAT isn't a bog-standard WP class. Sounds like your theme may not be 3.1 okay. Remove it from your server and that will force your site to use twentyten.

    I tried that as well and its a no go.

    I found this, however, looks like restoring is the only way around it at this point. http://wordpress.org/support/topic/fatal-error-following-automatic-upgrade?replies=8

    yes try a manual upgrade by using FTP or whatever file management application your host provides.

    Then re-running the upgrade manually using /wp-admin/upgrade.php.

    I have to do a manual update on a client's site because the auto-update isn't compatible with her site host. I got this error as well, and the only two places I find "Walker_Page" are in page_template.php and comment_template.php -- both of which are WordPress 3.1 core files. I've tried re-uploading those two files, but page_template doesn't exist in my 3.0.5 version file structure.

    I'll have to roll back to 3.0.5 so her customers can access her site until there's some sort of resolution. :-/

    Found the solution to the "Walker_Page" error: I needed to make sure all my root directory "wp-*.php" files had been properly uploaded to the server. User error... /facepalm

    (Deleting the "/wp-includes/classes.php" file, which isn't used in 3.1, helped point me to where the actual problem was.)

    I just had the same thing happen to me when I updated a blog that I manage. I've had trouble running updates in the past, but before today it's never actually taken the blog down....

    Fixed it by manually uploading all the wp-*.php files to the root directory, and that brought it back. (Thank you g33kg0dd3ss!)

    One word of caution though - just be careful not to overwrite wp-config.php or you'll kill your database connection, like I did. Luckily I have it backed up. Phew! :)

    I did a Manuel upgrade and got this error. I also tried to change the theme name to load twentyten and still the same error.

    I don't know how to reset the plugin folders, I don't even know what that means.

    I have re uploaded three times and I get the same error.

    Also when I try a auto upgrade it just fails and addons fail with the auto upgrade as well.

    I did the automatic update to wordpress 3.3.1 and this is what it you get when you log onto my website -- nothing else, just the following . . .

    Fatal error: Cannot redeclare getvideo() (previously declared in /homepages/6/d323152454/htdocs/wordpress/wp-content/plugins/sp-video/sp-video.php:50) in /homepages/6/d323152454/htdocs/wordpress/wp-content/plugins/sp-video/sp-video.php on line 50

    Please help! Thanks!
