installation successful, but no access to dashboard (5 posts)

    Hello kind people:
    I have installed WordPress correctly(or so it said anyways), and it comes up at the URL http://www.metroexodus.com but I have no access to the dashboard or anything I click on. I get this message:

    Fatal error: Call to undefined function is_multisite() in /homepages/14/d126612468/htdocs/metroexodus/wp-admin/admin.php on line 14.

    I'm unfamiliar with this part of the path in this statement:
    I assume this is my 1and1.com hosts path.

    as best I can tell, this is line 14 from admin.php:

    if ( ! is_multisite() ) {
    	wp_redirect( admin_url() );

    I'd appreciate any help or guidance in this matter. I've reinstalled the wordpress files twice with the same results.
    Thanks in advance

    Are you trying to do a multi site install or just a plain vanilla install?

    What about plugins, do you have any active at the moment?

    If yes to the second question, via ftp rename your plugin directory to get them out of the way for a moment to see if one of those is causing the issue.

    Just a plain vanilla install. No plugins, unless they come active. I've not been into the dashboard at all yet..
    Thanks for the links too - I'm crawling this forum as we speak looking for clues..

    let me clarify, I just installed WordPress, so if it comes with any plugins active, I wouldn't know. After the install it had let me login, displays what I assume to be the generic theme or templates, and has the name I chose, and "just another wordpress site" as a tagline, with rotating stock photos..
    Any click brings up the error above.
    BTW, Gravityforms looks pretty awesome!!

    also - I renamed the plugins folder and retried accessing dashboard, but no change. Akismet was the only folder in the plugins directory. I have since named it back to plugins..
