  • An old site on GoDaddy has an old WordPress setup and wasn’t displaying the front page properly or the log-in page. Setting debugging has a message of:

    Notice: wp_enqueue_script was called incorrectly. Scripts and styles should not be registered or enqueued until the wp_enqueue_scripts, admin_enqueue_scripts, or login_enqueue_scripts hooks. This notice was triggered by the jquery handle. Please see Debugging in WordPress for more information. (This message was added in version 3.3.0.) in /home/leelanauedgroup/public_html/wp-includes/functions.php on line 5226

    The GoDaddy tech said I needed to update the WordPress core files, so I did. I manually updated the core files using WP 5.5.1, keeping the .htaccess, WP-Content folder, and wp-config.php file from the old setup in there (per this article which is a Dummies article co-authored by Matt Mullenweg (that’s an authority, for sure).

    I went to try logging in and now have three debugging issues, and still no normal log-in screen.

    Deprecated: class-phpmailer.php is deprecated since version 5.5.0! Use wp-includes/PHPMailer/PHPMailer.php instead. The PHPMailer class has been moved to wp-includes/PHPMailer subdirectory and now uses the PHPMailer\PHPMailer namespace. in /home/leelanauedgroup/public_html/wp-includes/functions.php on line 4964

    Deprecated: class-smtp.php is deprecated since version 5.5.0! Use wp-includes/PHPMailer/SMTP.php instead. The SMTP class has been moved to the wp-includes/PHPMailer subdirectory and now uses the PHPMailer\PHPMailer namespace. in /home/leelanauedgroup/public_html/wp-includes/functions.php on line 4964

    Part of the problem is that I cannot log in due to a GoDaddy upgrade that says it’s pointing toward a different domain (they autoupgraded the hosting to new.leelanauedgroup.com due to the owner not attending to emails about that), but the GoDaddy tech said I needed to change the core files to get things to work again. Any ideas if this is fixable through the file server in CPanel as I’ve been trying?

    The Dummies guide I followed said that after uploading the new core files and trying to log-in, the database should have asked for an upgrade, but it didn’t. I think I need to contact GoDaddy again and ask for more assistance.
