WP Admin has disappeared (10 posts)

    This may sound strange. Because it is. I recently upgraded to WP 2.0.4.

    After posting ten times, I suddenly was no longer able to access my dashboard, which appeared totally white and um blank. The rest of my blog appears and functions normally.

    My problem is just on the back of the house WP-Admin side. Through my FTP, I went back and deleted the WP-Admin folder, then dropped a new folder in and still had the same problem. I checked all its contents and all the php files seem to be there.

    Anybody have any ideas? Thanks.

    I have a question: When you're at that blank dashboard, what's the full url in your browser's address bar?

    It shows up as my site's url/wp-admin/index.php

    This is how it has always shown up before.

    Now I just checked my CGI error log and this showed up:

    PHP Fatal error: Call to undefined function: wp_get_current_user() in my site/htdocs/wp-admin/admin.php on line 20

    so if you go to http://yoursite.com/blog/wp-admin/edit.php everything will look fine?

    What version did you upgrade from? Are all your plugins known to work with 2.x? Along that line: You might try temporarily disabling (or removing) your plugins to see if that changes anything.

    No, all admin pages come up blank. Because I didn't have access to the dashboard to the de-activate the plug ins, I just deleted them by FTP.

    As far as installation goes, I delete all the old files per instructions and then add the new versions. I went from 2.0.1 to 2.0.4.

    You mentioned deleting the plugins via FTP. I assume that didn't change anything?

    Did you run the http://yoursite.com/blog/wp-admin/upgrade.php ?

    I can't get to that page per not being able to get to anything that says /wp-admin.

    Permissions on the wp-admin folder and contents? The "norm" is to suggest 755 on folders and 644 on files.

    If that's not it, hope someone smarter than I sees this thread...

    Just for kicks and grins, email/call your host tech support and ask if they made any changes to the programs which run backend: php, mysql, apache....
