Support » Fixing WordPress » Blank Dashboard – undefined function

  • I’d appreciate any suggestions for fixing this issue. I’m dealing with the blank dashboard problem. I can log in, but the only thing that shows is my profile settings. My site looks fine on the front end, just the dashboard is toast.

    When I enabled error logging, I got this error after logging into the dashboard:

    Fatal error: Call to undefined function get_option() in /hermes/bosweb/web273/b2739/ipg.wildjersey/wp-admin/admin.php on line 32

    Here’s the code that seems related to the error in my admin.php, and I’ve bolded line 32:

    if ( get_option(‘db_upgraded’) ) {
    $wp_rewrite->flush_rules();
    update_option( ‘db_upgraded’, false );

    /**
    * Runs on the next page load after successful upgrade
    *
    * @since 2.8
    */
    do_action(‘after_db_upgrade’);
    } elseif ( get_option(‘db_version’) != $wp_db_version && empty($_POST) ) {
    if ( !is_multisite() ) {
    wp_redirect(admin_url(‘upgrade.php?_wp_http_referer=’ . urlencode(stripslashes($_SERVER[‘REQUEST_URI’]))));
    exit;
    } elseif ( apply_filters( ‘do_mu_upgrade’, true ) ) {
    /**
    * On really small MU installs run the upgrader every time,
    * else run it less often to reduce load.
    *
    * @since 2.8.4b
    */
    $c = get_blog_count();
    if ( $c <= 50 || ( $c > 50 && mt_rand( 0, (int)( $c / 50 ) ) == 1 ) ) {
    require_once( ABSPATH . WPINC . ‘/http.php’ );
    $response = wp_remote_get( admin_url( ‘upgrade.php?step=1’ ), array( ‘timeout’ => 120, ‘httpversion’ => ‘1.1’ ) );
    do_action( ‘after_mu_upgrade’, $response );
    unset($response);
    }
    unset($c);
    }
    }

    require_once(ABSPATH . ‘wp-admin/includes/admin.php’);

    I have already tried deactivating the plugins and themes via FTP, AND I have done a manual reinstall of WP 3.3.2. No dice.

    Interestingly, I had this blank dashboard issue before, and after several MONTHS of trying to figure it out, it resolved itself somehow. The problem just returned spontaneously. I had not done any upgrades or even added any posts to my blog.

    Would be grateful for any ideas.
