    Hello all,

    Today when I used the automatic update plugin to upgrade my wp, I got some fatal errors in the last step which was "upgrade the installation files". So I don't want to upgrade anymore and just stay with 2.6. I have the back up database and files. How can I restore them?

    Thanks a lot!

    btw, my fatal error is: Call to undefined function wp_clone() in /mnt/w0204/d24/s31/b0293d4e/www/bongdavietnam.org/blog/wp-includes/cache.php on line 380

    That's why I don't like using scripts do to installs or upgrades. It's best to do them the old fashioned way.

    Try uploading a fresh copy of this file --> wp-includes/functions.php

    Actually, odds are if that file didn't make it others may not have as well.

    I just installed WordPress and settings, profile, all works, but when I hit, "visit site", nothing shows. I checked my pHp and I do not have the file LenK said should be there: wp-includes/functions,php. Should I have that file in my db?

    The file functions.php is located in the wp-includes folder and I'm certain its absence is what is causing the error experienced by fancom.

    With respect to your problem web_M8 are you sure it's not there? A blank site is usually caused by a PHP error such as whitespace where none should be. Double check wp-config.php to ensure their is no space before the opening <?php tag and after the closing ?> tag. Seeing how this is a fresh install you probably aren't yet using any plugins - or are you? If so deactivate.

    Have you checked your error logs? What do they say?
