Fatal Error doesnt make sense

  • OK.. I recently attempted to upgrade from WordPress 1.2 (or so I do believe) to 1.5 and am having a lot of issues. This is one of them:

    I unzipped the .zip Strayhorn file and extracted all. I proceeded to upload, and then it brought up several of those:


    <code> Warning: main(/home/unchaine/public_html/wp-includes/template-functions.php): failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /home/unchaine/public_html/wp-settings.php on line 41

    Warning: main(/home/unchaine/public_html/wp-includes/template-functions.php): failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /home/unchaine/public_html/wp-settings.php on line 41

    Fatal error: main(): Failed opening required '/home/unchaine/public_html/wp-includes/template-functions.php' (include_path='.:/usr/lib/php:/usr/local/lib/php') in /home/unchaine/public_html/wp-settings.php on line 41

    Now, I looked in the extracted files and they do not include a template-functions.php….. I’m kind of lost here. Help, anyone?

  • Maybe your wp-settings.php file didn’t get replaced with the new one?

    I uploaded the new wp-settings.php.. no change for the better. 🙁

    Oh, now I’m getting a whole new error here.

    Warning: Invalid argument supplied for foreach() in /home/unchaine/public_html/wp-settings.php on line 113

    Did you delete the old one first or just overwrite it? I just looked at my wp-settings.php file and it doesn’t call for template-functions anywhere, so if yours still is then there is something wrong with it.

    Did you remember to deactivate all of your plugins before upgrading?

    I didn’t deactivate anything, I simply deleted everything except for my modified files and uploaded the new WP files.

    My wp-settings file still calls for template-functions for some reason, though.. I just deleted it and uploaded another one.. still calls for it, and it’s the one from Strayhorn.. odd…

    What did you do about your database? Some info will be stored there, I think I remember reading somewhere. And the database for 1.2.* doesn’t have the same number of tables that 1.5’s db does….

    You were following the procedure for upgrading in the README, right? Just checking to be sure….

    The error changed. ( Big whoop. )

    Warning: main(/home/unchaine/public_html/wp-settings.php): failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /home/unchaine/public_html/wp-config.php on line 31

    Fatal error: main(): Failed opening required ‘/home/unchaine/public_html/wp-settings.php’ (include_path=’.:/usr/lib/php:/usr/local/lib/php’) in /home/unchaine/public_html/wp-config.php on line 31

    and yes, I did backup my database.

    Ummmm – hmm. Would seem to me that your wp installation should be in something like “public_html/wordpress/” – your first error listed there seems to be looking for the wp-config.php file in your root folder.

    When I upgraded, I moved all of the files to the root folder instead of in a sub-directory. Is that why I’m having so much problems?

    Well, I don’t know for sure, but I would (if this were me), delete everything and start over, putting wp in its own folder….

    Well, I want the main page to be WordPress powered. Previously I had it in a sub-directory, and linked to the index.php through a i-frame. I now want the whole page to be WordPress – I don’t know of any other way of doing this without having WP installed in the main directory.. Sorry.. I’m a little new.

    You should be able to do that with the Pages function in 1.5, without having it resident in the root folder. I don’t know that root folder residency is the problem with your install though. It was simply a thought, since your error message was looking for the file in a place I wouldn’t have expected it to be living.

    I want my blog to be on the front page, not a WP page. . . . Can I have the index.php file in the main directory and still have the WP install in a sub-directory? Is this possible?
