    Trying to upgrade from 2.07. I'm sorry I tried. What a screwup and I did everything by the book.

    First, I got this message when clicking upgrade.php:
    Fatal error: Cannot redeclare timer_stop() (previously declared in /home/cecon46/public_html/canwetalk/wp-settings.php:65) in /home/cecon46/public_html/canwetalk/wp-includes/functions.php on line 840

    Then i went to view the file and got the following:

    define('WP_INSTALLING', true);
    if (!file_exists('../wp-config.php'))
    die("There doesn't seem to be a wp-config.php file. I need this before we can get started. Need more help? We got it. You can create a wp-config.php file through a web interface, but this doesn't work for all server setups. The safest way is to manually create the file.");

    require_once(ABSPATH . '/wp-admin/upgrade-functions.php');

    if (isset($_GET['step']))
    $step = $_GET['step'];
    $step = 0;
    @header('Content-type: ' . get_option('html_type') . '; charset=' . get_option('blog_charset'));
    <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">
    <html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" <?php language_attributes(); ?>>
    <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="<?php bloginfo('html_type'); ?>; charset=<?php echo get_option('blog_charset'); ?>" />
    <title><?php _e('WordPress › Upgrade'); ?></title>
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="<?php echo get_option('siteurl') ?>/wp-admin/install.css?version=<?php bloginfo('version'); ?>" type="text/css" />
    <?php if ( ('rtl' == $wp_locale->text_direction) ) : ?>
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="<?php echo get_option('siteurl') ?>/wp-admin/install-rtl.css?version=<?php bloginfo('version'); ?>" type="text/css" />
    <?php endif; ?>
    <h1 id="logo"><img alt="WordPress" src="images/wordpress-logo.png" /></h1>
    switch($step) {
    case 0:
    $goback = clean_url(stripslashes(wp_get_referer()));
    <p><?php _e('This file upgrades you from any previous version of WordPress to the latest. It may take a while though, so be patient.'); ?></p>
    <h2 class="step">"><?php _e('Upgrade WordPress »'); ?></h2>
    case 1:

    if ( empty( $_GET['backto'] ) )
    $backto = __get_option('home');
    $backto = clean_url(stripslashes($_GET['backto']));
    <h2><?php _e('Step 1'); ?></h2>
    <p><?php printf(__("There's actually only one step. So if you see this, you're done. Have fun!"), $backto); ?></p>


    <?php printf(__('%s queries'), $wpdb->num_queries); ?>
    <?php printf(__('%s seconds'), timer_stop(0)); ?>



    I have a wp-config.php file and it's sitting in the folder. I was told not to overwrite it.

    I can't think of a thing I did wrong. Oh, and BTW, my server has all the latest.

    When you can see all that code - there is something wrong with the PHP on that server. It looks as if PHP is not running... although that contradicts the fact it worked before.

    The very 1st error indicates not all of the wp-includes folder made it or was corrupted in upload. Try re-uploading the contents of that folder.

    OK, I'll upload wp-includes again and see what happens.
