    I logged in today and this is what came up instead of my dashboard:

    Since I can't get into the dashboard, I have no clue how to change my theme or anything else.

    Please help.

    Thank you.

    Thank you. Followed the instructions and got this message now instead of my blog:

    Fatal error: Cannot redeclare timer_stop() (previously declared in /home/thewils/public_html/blog/wp-includes/load.php:218) in /home/thewils/public_html/blog/wp-includes/functions.php on line 848

    :( Am looking to see what to do now.

    Try manually resetting your plugins. If that resolves the issue, reactivate each one individually until you find the cause.

    If that does not resolve the issue, access your server via FTP or SFTP, navigate to /wp-content/themes/ and rename the directory of your currently active theme. This will force the Twenty Ten theme to activate and hopefully rule-out a theme-specific issue.

    Thanks James, I'll try that.

    This is truly becoming a nightmare. I am not a programmer, I don't know PHP... All I want is to plug my little articles in and be blissfully ignorant. All this because I had to upgrade to the latest version and my theme was not supported. Then I have this lovely fellow that updated the theme but I can't get into the dashboard to use it. :(

    I'll let you know if it works. I'll have to go through the FTP as phpMyAdmin did not have an active_plugins row (naturally).

    Thanks,

    OK, well that is a no-go too because I can't Login to my WordPress administration menus since they don't exist apparently. It just continues to direct to the same fatal error message.

    Were you able to reset the plugins and force the theme to switch? Neither require admin panel access.

    If you did and that didn't produce any results, try downloading WordPress again and delete then replace your copies of everything except the wp-config.php file and the /wp-content/ directory with fresh copies from the download. This will effectively replace all of your core files without damaging your content and settings. Some uploaders tend to be unreliable when overwriting files, so don't forget to delete the original files before replacing them.

    No I was not able to accomplish that. I did as instructed but it does not produce results.

    Actually my hosting company updated it at their end. I didn't do it on my computer. We did that because a few of us work on it and it was a "central" location to store the program... or does that even matter?

    Would it be better to install it on my computer and then upload to my "server"?

    Does it allow me to pick and choose which files to overwrite then?

    Is the process easy for a noob or should I just leave it to the hosting company again?

    Sorry for all the questions.

    That would probably be easiest.

    It'll be like working with files on your computer. Just use an FTP or SFTP client to access the server (get the connection details from your hosting provider), then delete and replace your copies of everything except the wp-config.php file and the /wp-content/ directory with fresh copies from the download.

    My hosting company did reinstall WordPress last night but they also reinstalled the wp-content. UGH!

    Now I can no longer login because wordpress doesn't recognize me.

    I have a ticket in for them to call me today because they will need to revert it back to the way it was then. The only other option I can think of is to upload my backup copy of wp-content and see if that works.

    Do you have any other suggestions?

    Best regards,

    Jackie

    If it doesn't recognize you, that means the reinstalled the database. wp-content only contains your themes, plugins, and uploads. If you don't have a backup of your database, you'll need to wait for them to restore it for you.

    Yep. duking it out with them right now. I have backups too but I want them to restore it first. Haha! Such lessons in blogging I never expected. :D

    Thanks for your response, James.

    Hi James,

    Me again!

    We have a rather extensive project in mind, WordPress based, and we need people that are interested in helping to develop and maintain this project as it evolves. Is that something you do? Would something like that be of interest to you?

    If not, would you be interested in helping us build the plugins we need on a “per project” basis and would you also offer tech support for those plugins?

    Thanks,

    Jackie
