Options not Updating (9 posts)

    I just upgraded to 1.5.1

    I tried to change an Option (any option, I've tried a few), update doesn't work, I get a blank white page, and this is the url:
    /wp-admin/options.php

    Any clue?

    Could one of your wp-admin/ files be corrupt?

    How would I go about finding that out mdawaffe?

    You could try deleting (after backing up, if your cautious) all the files in your wp-admin/ directory and re-uploading freshly downloaded copies.

    Few people have made customizations to files in that directory, but occassionally people do (sometimes an older plugin requires such modifications, for example). Hopefully you are not one of those people; hopefully you can delete at will. If you have made customizations, you'll have to back up your files before you delete them and then redo the customizations.

    EDIT: To be honest, though, I have no idea if this is the source of your problem.

    Well, look at you! This seemed to fix the problem.

    I still don't know what particuarly messed it up in the first place, but it is fixed after overriding wp-admin files.

    Thank you tons for your help and time.

    No worries :) glad it's working!

    (Sometimes FTP can do naughty things when overwriting files. Guess you just had bad luck!)
