Hey all –
I’m trying to install WordPress (Install4Free request) for an Italian gentleman. He wants the Italian version of it installed on his server. I got all of his information and went to the WordPress Italy website and downloaded the Italian version of WordPress 2.0.4. Unzipped, configured and upladaed – and I got an error for wp_cache. I tried disabling it, but nothing worked.
So I went to the Codex and it says you can upload the English version, then get the .mo files and add the language in the wp_config file, and it’ll work the same way. I have a copy of the English veriosn od 2.0.4, and it’s fine – I’ve been using it to install WordPress for the last two weeks on all kinds of servers, no problem. So I know my files are just fine (I used them twice this morning, in fact, with no problems on other requests.) So, I edited the English version – put in the proper database stuff, and added “it_IT” to the language area and uplaoded the wp_config.php file. I created a lnaguages folder in the wp-includes area, and put in the Italian .mo and .po files. I went to the install page to try it this way, and I get a new error:
Fatal error: Call to undefined function: current_user_can() in /home/laprovin/public_html/online/wordpress/wp-admin/admin.php on line 5
Would anyone have any idea what’s up? I know my English copy is fine – so what am I doing wrong in this installation?
What’s *really* funny is, I deleted all references to the Italian stuff (got rid of the langauges folder, removed the “it_IT” part, and reuploaded) and I get the same error when trying to install a straight-up English version (again, with the same files I’ve succesfully used twice the morning for other people).
I should also mention that I’ve been having issues uploading the files to his server – I don’t know if it’s his server’s end or my internet connection (cable) – but once it hits the wp-includes area, any number of files will cause uploading stutters. It’s not any one particular file, but for some reason when it gets ot that folder – English or Italian version – his server just starts hiccuping.
Any ideas on what’s going on would be appreciated. (I’ve looked for his error logs and haven’t found them yet…but if there’ any ideas in the meantime, I’d appreciate it.)
