    Try re-uploading the wp-admin and wp-includes folders from a fresh download of WordPress

    Switch to the Twenty Ten theme by renaming your current theme's folder in wp-content/themes using FTP or whatever file management application your host provides. You may need to try logging into your site to get this to kick in fully.

    What do I do???

    use ftp or cpanel to either rename or delete the faulty theme folder - your site should then revert back to the default theme, and you should be able to access the dashboard again.

    I'm sorry. We can't really explain it any more clearly. You need to rename or delete the wp-content\themes\c30e9eca49bb9e2c30a2c3ca889c3d4a folder on your site.

    You don't need to login. You need to use FTP or cPanel or whatever file management application your host provides to access your hosting space.

    You need to use FTP or cPanel or whatever file management application your host provides to access your hosting space. Please try asking your hosts for assistance.

    Did this resolve the issue? I am having the same problem but am afraid of losing all my content and customizations by messing around in the FTP or reinstalling WP. Help very much appreciated.

    I had a similar problem and was receiving a similar error message, but managed to resolve it in the File Manager of the cPanel. This was scary as I felt like I was tinkering with the nuclear launch codes, but it worked. Thanks.
