Support » Fixing WordPress » Forum Suddenly Stopped Working

  • Hi,

    I didn’t touch my blog for a couple weeks. Then yesterday I went to the blog and found that it is now displaying the error message below:

    I was wondering if anyone else’s wordpress blog suddenly started displaying the following error:

    Warning: main(/home/selfeste/public_html/blog/wp-includes/wp-db.php): failed to open stream: Permission denied in /home/selfeste/public_html/blog/wp-settings.php on line 73

    Fatal error: main(): Failed opening required ‘/home/selfeste/public_html/blog/wp-includes/wp-db.php’ (include_path=’.:/usr/lib/php:/usr/local/lib/php’) in /home/selfeste/public_html/blog/wp-settings.php on line 73

    It’s strange because I didn’t touch the blog since it was last working, so it’s not like I moved around files and messed something up.

    My blog is at

    If anyone has experienced this, what did you do to fix it? Confused

    Thanks in advance for your help,
