Nightlies broke my login

  • Advised within this forum to get the nightly updates, I did so. I assumed this meant to download them and then copy them onto my server. So I did.
    Now I get the following error when viewing my blog and trying to get into the blog login:

    Warning: Invalid argument supplied for foreach() in /home/cameraon/public_html/wordpress/wp-settings.php on line 93

    The site is http://www.cameraontheroad.com/wordpress/index.php for those who want first hand inspection.
    I have gone through the Wiki and Documentation about nightlies and found little or no helpful info, so I did what appeared to be the wisest and now I may be screwed. Any ideas on fixing this?

  • Looks like you’ve fixed it ? I see no errors on the page.
    And grab some spam protection from here:

    Ah… when you upgraded, did you overwrite the existing files or delete them first and upload new ? It’s always better to delete first.
    Try deleting wp-settings.php, then reuploading a new one. If that does not fix it, delete all the files – keeping copies of all files you have modified – and reupload.
    FTP clients do not always do a proper job of overwriting.

    The settings and the index.php file (among others) required replacing. I replaced everything from the original download I did last week prior to installing it on my server for the first time. I had to go back and fix a few things that were replaced, but it is finally working.
    What a scare. And a mess.
    And move slower and step carefully.
    Besides, fire breathing dragons I can deal with. It’s the stepping in bubble gum that brings me down.
    Thanks for the help! I be smarter next time.
    And the question not answered: How do you update with the nightlies? As I did but deleting then uploading the new files, but NOT the ones you’ve messed with.
    With all the little tweaks I’ve been doing to make this blog work they way I want to, I’m changing all kinds of files. How do people keep track of what has been changed and what deserves replacing with the newest update?
