While the dashboard was showing up mostly well, i was getting warning errors on the bottom of the page... one of them about admin-footer. I remembered Fliezilla asking me if I wanted to overwrite when uploading the files, so I thought if I re-uploaded that file it would fix it. Still another warning error showed up about wp-admin/index.php so i uploaded that file again and when I did that, I got this error when clicking "view site"
Fatal error: main() [function.require]: Failed opening required 'admin.php' (include_path='.:/usr/lib/php') in /homepages/3/d301134079/htdocs/index.php on line 10
I also still get this warning error when I'm on the dashboard page:
Warning: main(/homepages/3/d301134079/htdocs/wp-admin/admin-footer.php) [function.main]: failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /homepages/3/d301134079/htdocs/wp-admin/index.php on line 44
Finally, on the dashboard the headers of the boxes that say plugins, incoming inks, wordpress development blog, and other development news always say "loading..." but never reveal any information like the other site I just installed does.
Your help is truly appreciated.
