wp-admin.php requires non-existent file? (5 posts)

    Just downloaded the latest version and tried to install it.
    On line 12 of wp-admin/admin.php the following code is found:

    require_once( dirname(dirname(__FILE__)) . '/admin.php');

    Yet, no such file exists in the zip file. I have downloaded it twice. The file would be under the main wordpress directory, ie "wordpress/admin.php"

    Like I say, I downloaded the zip file directly from the wordpress server twice with the same results.

    Please advise. Thanks kindly.

    I fixed the issue by copying the content on admin.php from an earlier version of wordpress, and pasting it onto the admin.php page of the current version.

    for reference that code is:

    Doing so fixes the issue.

    Can you confirm your initial post (line 12 of /wp-admin/admin.php calling an non-existent file)?

    For me, using a fresh install of the ZIP (wordpress-3.4.1) and looking at the source code via SVN, line 12 of /wp-admin/admin.php is:

    * @since 2.3.2

    and can't find a reference to the line you mentioned.

    I can confirm that the original download which I downloaded twice had that line on line 12.

    However when I download today, it does not. Not sure if it is the mirror I downloaded from, or if it is fixed across the board. The admin.php file that I downloaded today however contains code that functions properly.

    That's the strangest thing. There's been nothing changed on 3.4.1 across the board. Perhaps something on the CDN or with a particular mirror or something.

    I'll bounce around the bug tracker on this.

    Glad it is working for you and the download is as expected.
