Support » Fixing WordPress » Fatal Error – missing file

  • My business partner and I are using the same login for our site. He’s been managing the site, and when I tried logging in finally, I got this error message.

    Now he’s unable to login also, with the same error message.

    Fatal error: Call to undefined function get_taxonomies_for_attachments() in /home/content/69/10035269/html/wp-admin/menu.php on line 67

    In the database I don’t even see a menu.php file in the wp-admin folder. And I know just enough html to read through it so what would I need to do if I found that php file with the problem on line 67?

    Thanks for any insight.

  • It seems someone tried to update to 3.5 and failed since get_taxonomies_for_attachments() is a 3.5 method. I would say download WordPress 3.5 and overwrite wp-admin and wp-includes folder.

    Thanks Marko! Any idea how I could update to 3.5 if I’m unable to login through the ‘’ page?

    The only thing you can do it login through FTP and upload the files yourself. So no wp-admin. So if you can’t do it yourself ask the person who created the site or your hosting company.
