    Have you recently made any changes to your installation? Having that information would help us figure out why you’re suddenly getting that error message.

    In the meanwhile try using FTP or whatever file management tools your host has provided you with try extracting and uploading a fresh copy of the WordPress files onto your file system. Upload everything except the wp-content directory.

    recently I needed refresh head.php for the thesis theme 1.8.2. now the dashboard does not work
    I will attempt your suggested I use filezilla

    would updgrading the 3.5.1 wordpress help?

    Dollars to donuts THAT’s the culprit. 😉

    If re-uploading the WordPress files does not work (I am 99.999% sure it will not solve it but try anyway) then you want to rename your thesis theme directory and visit http://your-wordpress-url-here/wp-admin/themes.php and switch to Twenty Twelve.

    That should let you into your WordPress dashboard. You’ll need to contact the commercial theme provider for that theme support then as we do not support Thesis here.

    You should run current versions of your software but I would not upgrade until you fix your problem. Or if you do want to upgrade then make sure your theme is set to Twenty Eleven and all your plugins are deactivated first.

    Honestly, you are having a problem with that theme. You paid for theme support from that vendor and you really should seek Thesis support from them.

    For now undo those changes you’ve made.

    Edit: duplicate topic http://wordpress.org/support/topic/thesis-182-error?replies=4 closing. Don’t create duplicates, it’s the same answer and you make it harder to support you.
