Support » Fixing WordPress » fatal error – in dashboard presentation and plugin

  • Hi. I was trying to change something on my sidebar. After I changed it I noticed my dashboard is all messed up.
    In the plugins area there is not anything there except a long row of Warning: file failed to open stream: Too many open files in wp-admin/admin-functions.php on line 1471
    Then the presentation area – Fatal error: Call to a member function on a non-object in wp-includes/functions.php on line 1749
    everything else is good. I tried a fresh install (keeping the files you do when you upgrade).
    Does anyone have any ideas? I would just do an entirely fresh install – I have all my images and can change everything back. Where are my posts and comments to my posts located? I don’t mind redoing some things but I just don’t want to lose everything. Thank you! Tiffini X http://www.tartx.com

  • I am having the identical Fatal Errors only with different line numbers: Could this be a hosting problem?

    Themes and Theme Editor:
    Fatal error: Call to a member function on a non-object in (address)wp-includes/functions.php on line 1765

    Plugins:
    Warning: file(wp-content/plugins/hello.php): failed to open stream: Too many open files in (address) wp-admin/admin-functions.php on line 1468.

    I have not made any recent changes to sidebar other than adding links (Links, Add Links).

    Themes and Theme Editor is unaccessible.

    Is it possible you both have a plugin conflicting?
    Disable all plugins and re-activate them one by one.

    Without access to the Plug-in menu (thru dashboard) disabling means delete the files?
    Doing so removes the Plug-in error (but shows Plug-ins not found).
    Themes errors still exist with what appears to be a path statement error (?)

    Error shows: /home/content/U/S/C/USCitizen/html/wp-admin/admin-functions.php

    path is (should be?) <domain name>/wp-admin/admin-functions.php

    What version of WP are you using and how recently did you upgrade/install?

    Methinks it’s the latest version – downloaded / installed 32 days ago. Version: WordPress 2.0.1

    Plug-in akismet removed.
    Plug-ins now visible – no errors!

    Presentation, Themes, Theme Editor dashboard items still showing:

    Fatal error: Call to a member function on a non-object in /home/content/U/S/C/USCitizen/html/wp-includes/functions.php on line 1765

    Line 1765 of functions.php reads:

    while (($theme_file = $stylish_dir->read()) !== false) {

    Try setting the files in your theme folder to CHMOD 666.

    Oddly enough after the whole blog problem about a week later my website disappeared. I called godaddy for the bazillionth time – of course not their fault. Nothing ever is. However, this time we realized the dns was not correct. They corrected it and within a half an hour my website was back and the blog fixed itself. So all is well now – I also switched hosts to hostgator. I did not really appreciate the customer service from godaddy.
