Support » Installing WordPress » Call to undefined function wp_kses_bad_protocol()

  • I went through the install process, everything is fine.

    I get taken to the following URL:

    From there I clicked the “Run the install” button, which takes me to the following URL:

    However, on that page, this is the error that I get:

    <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC “-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN” “”>
    <html xmlns=”” dir=”ltr” xml:lang=”en-US”>
    <meta http-equiv=”Content-Type” content=”text/html; charset=utf-8″ />
    <title>WordPress › Installation</title>

    <b>Fatal error</b>: Call to undefined function wp_kses_bad_protocol() in <b>/home/user/public_html/blog/wp-includes/formatting.php</b> on line <b>1168</b>

    The solution I found to this was that the file “kses.php” hadn’t uploaded correctly, and was in fact 0 bytes. Re-uploading this file solved the problem.
