Support » Installing WordPress » fatal error on wp-admin/install.php

  • I am very new to wordpress and everything about it

    i have a host, and downloaded wordpress, uploaded it via file zilla…
    i have modifyed wp-config.php, wp-admin/menu.php…

    after that when i go to the site, instead of seeing the dash board i get this error:

    Warning: require_once(/home/a6488748/public_html/wordpress/wp-admin/includes/upgrade.php) [function.require-once]: failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /home/a6488748/public_html/wordpress/wp-admin/install.php on line 39

    PHP Error Message

    Fatal error: require_once() [function.require]: Failed opening required ‘/home/a6488748/public_html/wordpress/wp-admin/includes/upgrade.php’ (include_path=’.:/usr/lib/php:/usr/local/lib/php’) in /home/a6488748/public_html/wordpress/wp-admin/install.php on line 39

    Please help me solve this problem


    P.S: i also uploaded the raw install.php inside the wp-admin folder but i get the problem

    And this is line 39 code, that error is talking about:

    /** Load WordPress Administration Upgrade API */
    require_once( dirname( __FILE__ ) . ‘/includes/upgrade.php’ );

  • Just a guess on this one, but it might be that you had an incomplete or interrupted ftp session, and some of your other WordPress files didn’t make it. Have you had a chance to try removing all of the uploaded files except wp-config.php, and then re-uploading WordPress?

    try reuploading “wp-admin” and “wp-includes” folder again and make sure to validate that all the files got uploaded. It seems your current install doesnt have all the files.
