Support » Fixing WordPress » Fatal Error: Locked out of admin and website

  • I installed a plug-in. The plug-in locked me out of the dashboard. To resolve I deleted a few things and crashed the whole website! How can I fix this error, and if I cannot, how do I start from scratch?

    Warning: require(/home/msaumn/public_html/wp-includes/deprecated.php) [function.require]: failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /home/msaumn/public_html/wp-settings.php on line 133

    Fatal error: require() [function.require]: Failed opening required ‘/home/msaumn/public_html/wp-includes/deprecated.php’ (include_path=’.:/usr/lib/php:/usr/local/lib/php’) in /home/msaumn/public_html/wp-settings.php on line 133

    Many thanks!

    what plugin?

    what did you delete?

    It was some maintenance splash page. The first thing I deleted was the deprecated.php (probably a big mistake). Then I deleted the plug in, and the plug ins folder entirely.

    I downloaded the wordpress zip and then re-uploaded the deprecated.php file. All seems to be fixed now. Thanks for your response cubecolour!
