Support » Installing WordPress » Fresh Installation of WP 3.5.1 fails to install themes or plugins

    I downloaded WP 3.5.1 and installed. After completing the installation, I was unable to install plugins or themes. Any installation of a plugin or theme would fail with an error message about “unable to locate wp-content”.

    I compared a pre-existing installation that had been upgraded to WP 3.5.1 instead of freshly installed for the distribution .zip.

    There is a missing line in wp-content\index.php:

      Broken:

    <?php
    // Silence is golden.

      Fixed:

    <?php
    // Silence is golden.
    ?>
    Hope this helps someone.
