Support » Installing WordPress » Admin Page (Dashboard) Error

  • WordPress is amazing… I’ve just installed it on our Chuch website but when anyone logs in or trys to go to the Dashboard the following error is displayed

    “Internal Server Error, this is an error with your script, check your error log for more information.”

    Everything else works a dream (using a workaround to access admin but still can’t access the dashboard)

    Please help

  • I found that deleting line 37 in the wp-admin/index.php

    <?php wp_dashboard(); ?>

    allowed the dashboard to be displayed but it has nothing on it??? will keep digging, please help if you have any ideas

    <?php wp_dashboard(); ?>

    If you remove this, the dashboard will be empty, because this function call populates it.
    It could be that one of your plugins tries to come up with an widget for your dashboard but not supported in WP2.8 and let it crash.
    Could you please check whether you have such plugins running and deactivate those temporary for testing reasons.




    what you need to do is exactly what the error message says — check your error log.

    Where do I find the error log, my server logs are clean?

    just deleted the only two plugins that came with my initial install (these were not active by the way) this has not helped.

    However it is worth noting that when i tried to edit the one called akismet it gave the same error message as above.
