Support » Fixing WordPress » Fatal error out of the blue

  • Just started getting a fatal error out of nowhere. I didn’t change anything on the backend. This sucks because we’re in the middle of a two-week review to become part of a major blog network and this could ruin our chances. here’s the error:

    Warning: main(/homepages/46/d255400443/htdocs/albotasblog/wp-includes/wp-feed.php) [function.main]: failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /homepages/46/d255400443/htdocs/albotasblog/wp-settings.php on line 266

    Fatal error: main() [function.require]: Failed opening required ‘/homepages/46/d255400443/htdocs/albotasblog/wp-includes/wp-feed.php’ (include_path=’.:/usr/lib/php’) in /homepages/46/d255400443/htdocs/albotasblog/wp-settings.php on line 266

    Anyone know what this means? I’m pretty scared because our email account was recently hacked and I’m not sure if this has anything to do with it.

  • If you have missing/corrupted files, upgrade or reupgrade WordPress, taking care that your ftp program gets everything uploaded correctly.

    Also, do change all passwords and double check for hacking.

    how do I upgrade without losing all my posts and templates?

    Follow these instructions carefully:

    Excellent. Thanks.

    Anyone know what could have caused this? I just want to know if it might have been something I did so that I can avoid the same problem occurring in the future.


    A few possibilities:

    • Data was lost/corrupted on your host’s server. It can happen.
    • A malfunctioning plugin did this.
    • Hacking.
    • Someone intentionally or unintentionally deleted the file.
    • This can also be the result of a failed ftp upload, although it would have appeared before now.

    A file or files have gone missing or inaccessible. What’s ahead at

    >wp-settings.php on line 266

    for your WP version?

    Line 266 says

    require (ABSPATH . WPINC . ‘/wp-feed.php’);

    Okay. Do you have that file inside ‘wp-includes’?

    yeh. i moved it. then i got another message about a different file. moved the file to the folder. then i just got this message:

    Call to a member function on a non-object in /homepages/46/d255400443/htdocs/albotasblog/wp-includes/query.php on line 10

    Line 10 says:

    return $wp_query->get($var);
