Support » Installing WordPress » “Missing Content-Type Header!” after upgrade

  • I was, granted, having some login issues before I upgraded, which I think I just made worse, but I thought reinstalling WordPress would fix the problem, and if I was reinstalling, I might as well upgrade, right?

    Well, I ran upgrade.php, and got a message that I had upgraded successfully, but now when I go to /wordpress/wp-admin/index.php, I get:


    Invalid Header: [HTTP/1.1 302 Moved Temporarily]
    Missing Content-Type Header!

    Um, help.

  • Wow, that’s bizarre. Are you the sysadmin on the hosting machine? Definitely something different about your setup. Is the http response being proxied somehow? I’d get in touch with the host just to see if they’re familiar with what would have caused that sort of output.

    That is rather spectacular isn’t it?

    I really don’t think you have all of the files for 2.2.

    I would install them again. then if it still isn’t up I would delete all theme directories except default and see what happens.

    Is it possible that you don’t have the the required php and mysql versions for 2.2? The announcement shows the requirements…
