Support » Installing WordPress » After upgrade to 1.5: admin.php problems

  • Ok.

    Deleted all my old WP files except the wp-config.php.
    Uploaded all the new goodies.
    Run update.php – said it worked.

    The normal blog is working, but I can’t access any admin-functions.

    This is what I get when I try to go to the admin panel via:

    http://www.orangeguru.net/weblog/wp-admin/admin.php

    I get this:

    Warning: main(/www/htdocs/v079818/weblog//wp-admin/menu.php) [function.main]: failed to create stream: No such file or directory in /www/htdocs/v079818/weblog/wp-admin/admin.php on line 39

    Warning: main(/www/htdocs/v079818/weblog//wp-admin/menu.php) [function.main]: failed to create stream: No such file or directory in /www/htdocs/v079818/weblog/wp-admin/admin.php on line 39

    Fatal error: main() [function.main]: Failed opening required "/www/htdocs/v079818/weblog//wp-admin/menu.php" (include_path=".:..") in /www/htdocs/v079818/weblog/wp-admin/admin.php on line 39

    I can see that it is using a doubleslash // for the admin directory URL. Dunno from where and why it is using these instructions.

    Help appreciated.

    Thanks.

  • FYI: The upgrade was from 1.5 beta6 to 1.5 final.

    Oke, it’s working now.

    Deleted the whole WP-Setup (again).
    Copied all files onto the server again.
    Run upgrade.php again (this time with an error message).
    Logged into the admin.php (working now).
    Reinstalled (copied) all my old plugins, hacks and theme.
    Tadaaaaa … one happy orange bloggger again.

    😉

    I bet it was the plugins….. People, remember to DISABLE ALL YOUR PLUGINS FIRST, if you are going to delete all the files before upgrading. You’ll save yourself a world of hurt if you do.

    Hmmm. Hard to say. Because I deleted the whole setup BEFORE I started the first time. Weird.

    I also removed some settings from my .htaccess the final WP1.5 didn’t like.

    But did you disable them first? Before deleting all the files? I shot myself in the foot with my blog (fortunately it was only my test site) when I did that exact thing. I blindly deleted the files w/o first disabling the plugins…. Got tons of errors very similar to yours.

    So where does it hold the setting that a plugin is turned on or off? Is it in the DB?

    @tg: Ahhhh … now I see what you mean. No simply deleted them. If plugins should be TURNED OFF before upgrading either the upgrade.php should do it for you or tell you to do so,

    Thanks for the hint anyway.

    Mentions turning off plugins, which I’ve made bold now, but you’re right that having a note in upgrade.php itself probably wouldn’t hurt.

    As much as I love the codex and try to stay up to date … it should be in the software/updater itself. Can’t his be done by the via teh upgrade routine itself?

    BTW: Thanks for the great release and all the work you guys have done.
