HELP! WordPress Update Fatal Error

  • I recently updaated my wordpress magazine blog according to the newest release. However, after I logged in, instead of the dashboard pulling up – the following wp-admin page did:

    Fatal error: Call to undefined function is_network_admin() in /homepages/44/d215038298/htdocs/yfs/wp-admin/includes/template.php on line 1665

    I nearly had a hernia and I cannot get into the administration area now? Does anyone know how to fix this? Please help!

    Fatal error: Call to undefined function” is always a sign of an incomplete upgrade, where not all the files got upgraded.
    Do a manual upgrade by using FTP or whatever file management application your host provides.

    I did that and now the site is down???

    Fatal error: Cannot redeclare class Walker_Page in /homepages/44/d215038298/htdocs/yfs/wp-includes/post-template.php on line 1062

    I completed the manual upgrade – updated wp-includes and wp-admin and now the website address is loading the following error:

    Fatal error: Cannot redeclare class Walker_Page in /homepages/44/d215038298/htdocs/yfs/wp-includes/post-template.php on line 1062

    OMG! Some how that made it worse. The only directories updated were the wp-includes and the wp-admin. Please help!!

    read this: http://wordpress.org/support/topic/troubleshooting-wordpress-31-master-list

    If you cannot log in try:
    – switching to the default theme by renaming your current theme’s folder in wp-content/themes using FTP or whatever file management application your host provides.
    resetting the plugins folder by using FTP or whatever file management application your host provides. Sometimes, an apparently inactive plugin can still cause problems.

    Fatal error: Cannot redeclare class Walker_Page

    THAT isn’t a bog-standard WP class. Sounds like your theme may not be 3.1 okay. Remove it from your server and that will force your site to use twentyten.

    @lpstenu that didnt work for me.

    Did you do the resetting the plugins folder?

    I tried that as well and its a no go.

    I found this, however, looks like restoring is the only way around it at this point. http://wordpress.org/support/topic/fatal-error-following-automatic-upgrade?replies=8

    yes try a manual upgrade by using FTP or whatever file management application your host provides.

    Then re-running the upgrade manually using /wp-admin/upgrade.php.

    I have to do a manual update on a client’s site because the auto-update isn’t compatible with her site host. I got this error as well, and the only two places I find “Walker_Page” are in page_template.php and comment_template.php — both of which are WordPress 3.1 core files. I’ve tried re-uploading those two files, but page_template doesn’t exist in my 3.0.5 version file structure.

    I’ll have to roll back to 3.0.5 so her customers can access her site until there’s some sort of resolution. :-/

    Found the solution to the “Walker_Page” error: I needed to make sure all my root directory “wp-*.php” files had been properly uploaded to the server. User error… /facepalm

    (Deleting the “/wp-includes/classes.php” file, which isn’t used in 3.1, helped point me to where the actual problem was.)

    I just had the same thing happen to me when I updated a blog that I manage. I’ve had trouble running updates in the past, but before today it’s never actually taken the blog down….

    Fixed it by manually uploading all the wp-*.php files to the root directory, and that brought it back. (Thank you g33kg0dd3ss!)

    One word of caution though – just be careful not to overwrite wp-config.php or you’ll kill your database connection, like I did. Luckily I have it backed up. Phew! 🙂

    I did a Manuel upgrade and got this error. I also tried to change the theme name to load twentyten and still the same error.

    I don’t know how to reset the plugin folders, I don’t even know what that means.

    I have re uploaded three times and I get the same error.

    Also when I try a auto upgrade it just fails and addons fail with the auto upgrade as well.

    I did the automatic update to wordpress 3.3.1 and this is what it you get when you log onto my website — nothing else, just the following . . .

    Fatal error: Cannot redeclare getvideo() (previously declared in /homepages/6/d323152454/htdocs/wordpress/wp-content/plugins/sp-video/sp-video.php:50) in /homepages/6/d323152454/htdocs/wordpress/wp-content/plugins/sp-video/sp-video.php on line 50

    Please help! Thanks!
