Support » Installing WordPress » Installation Problems: Fatal error: Call to undefined function: get_bloginfo()

  • I have uploaded and deleted everything to the web server several times, so I know everything is there. I am using version 1.5.1.

    I get the php error message: Fatal error: Call to undefined function: get_bloginfo() <snipped path>wp-includes/wp-db.php on line 304. I checked out the file wp-db.php and don’t understand what could be the problem.

    It might be good to note that I am installing in a subdomain, if that could make any difference.

  • get_bloginfo() resides in wp-includes/template-functions-general.php. Do you have this file, and is it up-to-date?

    yeah, I get this too..
    the system is openBSD 3.5, PHP Version 4.3.5RC3

    Other than apache being chrooted, I cant think of anything “special” with the configuration, php & mysqld seems to be working fine..

    Kafkaesqui: yeah, its there:

    $ cd wp
    $ grep -Rl ‘get_bloginfo’ *

    Yes, I did a grep on the files to find where the function was. The file does exist and the function is there. I am still playing around with some things, but still need some ideas.

    I got that error, I reverted back to 1.5 files, turned off all plugins, went back to 1.5.1, hit upgrade and all is good.

    Ok, I have uploaded 1.5 before on another domain. I will try doing what you said since I was considering it before.

    Well, I have another question. Does anyone have a link to the 1.5 release. I don’t seem to have the old package. contains old releases. It doesn’t have 1.5 there yet. Hopefully it will soon.

    e-mail? I can send you the tar.gz version (i don’t have the zip)

    Hit the contact link on my site, and I’ll get you the zip.

    Kafkaesqui, I sent you an email but I got a reply back that it wasn’t able to send it because your box is full.

    Anyway, Ian or Kafkaesqui, why don’t you send me the tar or zip to <snipped>. (I will only keep the email up until I receive the file to avoid spam).

    Ok, nevermind everyone. I seemed to have finally got it to work. For some reason I had a minor error in the wp-config.php file. I don’t know why it didn’t give me an error saying the information was incorrect, but fixing that seemed to make things work (unless I did something differently this time I don’t know about).

    Too bad I didn’t visit the forums before emailing it off. ;)

    What did you do to fix it? I have the same problem.
