Fatal error: Call to undefined function get_option()

  • hey guys..this is my first question here..

    and i was wondering…why everytime i try to visit my website Technologypublic i get the following error message:

    “Fatal error: Call to undefined function get_option() in /home/********/public_html/wp-admin/admin.php on line 9”

    and when i try to go to my admin page i get the following error message:

    “Fatal error: Call to undefined function wp() in /home/********/public_html/wp-blog-header.php on line 14”

    i tried to re upload the admin.php file through my FileZilla and it doesn’t seem to be solving the problem, the hosting’s staff told me to re upload a file in the /include folder…called function.php
    i did, and still it won’t work…i can’t even access my admin page…is there anyway that i can backup my posts then just do a fresh installation..even if i don’t have access to my admin page?

    please i really need to get back online…please guys i really appreciate the help/ advice you that you can give me.

    Thanx in advance everyone!

  • ai, anybody know the answer, pls post. I have also the same doubt



    I know that both of you will be happy with this!

    I went to the /wp-includes folder and I uploaded again the following files:

    I guess what you only need to upload is the second file, but don’t experiment, upload them all and there you are!

    Upload a fresh copy of wp-includes and wp-admin folder with all the files and folder on the server. Also check with upgrading wordpress blog.
