Support » Fixing WordPress » Browser Crashed During Update

  • While I was updating to the latest version of WordPress, Firefox crashed and now I get this error message when I try to access my site.

    Fatal error: require() [function.require]: Failed opening required ‘/home/a5149571/public_html/wp-includes/class-wp-theme.php’ (include_path=’.:/usr/lib/php:/usr/local/lib/php’) in /home/a5149571/public_html/wp-settings.php on line 115

    Can someone please tell me how to fix this?

  • Unlucky timing for Firefox to crash!

    Try uploading a fresh copy of WordPress – excluding wp-content & wp-config.php. Then go to your admin panel and it might ask you to upgrade your database. This will only involve you clicking an “upgrade” button.

    I hope that fixes your problem, good luck!

    I deleted everything except wp-content and wp-config.php and uploaded a fresh copy of WP minus those two things. I restored my database and my site now opens but all I get is my home page. I have around 40 pages on my site that are not showing up. Please tell me I can fix this.

    Can you post your site URL?

    I think you may have messed up your .htaccess file.

    Is there a way to fix this. I can log into my dashboard and all my posts are still there. They simply won’t open in my browser. This is my first website and I don’t know a lot about html.

    It seems it can be a case malware, if this report can be believed:

    You may conduct further checks and find out.

    Okay, it looks like all my widgets are gone from my side bar. I think I can just recreate those and I’ll be okay, unless someone has an easier option. Thanks for all your help either way.

    Oops i forgot to add that I added htaccess file from a backup and got all of my posts to show up. They just all show on the same page.

    Problem resolved, thanks for all your help.

    What was it that fixed your site? Just so people can know if they come across this 🙂

    I did as you suggested and loaded a fresh copy of WordPress minus the wp-content, wp-config, and htaccess files and that made all my pages become available again. They all showed up on one post and all of my sidebar widgets were missing so I had to recreate the widgets in my sidebar so that they could be accessed individually. With your advice and a little work I’m back to where I was before. Thanks again.

    Glad to hear you’re up and running again! Your widgets should have been in the inactive widgets area.
