Upgrade to 3.4 from 3.3.2 failed (7 posts)

    Hi please can you help,

    I just backed up my wordpress database and updated my plugins with available updates before clicking the upgrade button.

    On clicking update wordpress I was informed that the update had failed due to the following,

    Warning: require(/home/prepayas/public_html/blog/wp-includes/option.php) [function.require]: failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /home/prepayas/public_html/blog/wp-includes/functions.php on line 8

    Fatal error: require() [function.require]: Failed opening required '/home/prepayas/public_html/blog/wp-includes/option.php' (include_path='.:/usr/lib/php:/usr/local/lib/php') in /home/prepayas/public_html/blog/wp-includes/functions.php on line 8

    The above is also what I see when I try to login to the blogs control panel.

    I have no idea where to begin with this, so any help you can provide would be great.

    @Dazza30,

    Is this related? Were / Are you using a DB Cache plugin?

    @Dazza30,

    You probably need to use FTP software to manually apply the update then.

    I know how to use ftp software, but have never used it to update wordpress, do you have a link to a tutorial?

    Try:
    - switching to the Twenty Eleven 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 - from a fresh download of WordPress.

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

    But that doesn't resolve the problem you're having. A plugin or theme as esmi as suggested could cause you problems even if you do a manual upgrade.
