Support » Fixing WordPress » 3.6.1 causes server errors

  • I upgraded to 3.6.1 due to it being a security update, but it caused server errors.

    When I click on one of the links, it gives me a ‘Server error’ message on Chrome and goes blank on Firefox, but when I refresh the page, the page loads in without a problem.

    I put it back to 3.6 and it works without a problem again.

  • I have faced same problem when I updated WP to 3.6.1 version.

    Error is ” Call to undefined function wp_validate_redirect()”.

    Please suggest for this.


    Are we talking about automatic update (from the dashboard)?
    Try re-uploading all files & folders – except the wp-content folder – from a fresh download of WordPress.
    – running the upgrade manually via wp-admin/upgrade.php

    I installed a clean WordPress 3.6.1 and stumbled into the same problem:

    Fatal error: Call to undefined function wp_validate_redirect() in wp-includes/functions.php on line 1305

    And yes, this line was changed in 3.6 -> 3.6.1 update.

    Please check if you have the same problem after reverting to Twenty Thirteen theme with all plugins deactivated?

    I tried the manual option, but unfortunately I get the same thing.

    Try what Krishna suggested.

    Try the automatic update option (though the manual option is better) by clicking the link at your dashboard – make sure that you switch to the default WordPress theme with all plugins deactivated. Also, don’t forget to backup your site before updating.

    ah, didn’t see that one.

    Strangely, it doesn’t allow me to change to Twenty Thirteen once it is upgraded.

    I have another site with the same theme, and that updated without a problem.

    It looks like it may be a possible plugin conflict, I’ll check through them and see what I can see.

    I got the following error when I tried to update using the link in my dashboard:

    Fatal error: Call to undefined function wp_validate_redirect() in /home/fleursfl/public_html/wp-includes/functions.php on line 1305

    Now what???

    OK, deactivate all plugins, then activate them one by one while looking for the problematic one.

    Excepting HorrorUK, all others may start their own topics so that it will be easier (and less confusing) for volunteers to help you. Though your problem may appear the same, the root cause of the problem can be quite different.

    How-To and Troubleshooting

    Same issue here.
    I am unable to save anything since updating.

    Please start your own topic.

    It all seems to be around the WooCommerce plugin that I’m getting the error.
