Support » Fixing WordPress » No one can Login after 3.7 Upgrade

  • I upgraded yesterday, and although the site is still loading, and all content looks OK, no one can login.

    This is the error message:

    Fatal error: Cannot redeclare check_password_reset_key() (previously declared in /home/spinn4/public_html/wp-login.php:265) in /home/spinn4/public_html/wp-includes/user.php on line 1642

    Any help or advice is appreciated.

  • I have the same error, and checked the list

    [26-Oct-2013 09:57:30] PHP Fatal error: Cannot redeclare check_password_reset_key() (previously declared in /var/userdata/web/*****/website/www/wp-login.php:281) in /var/userdata/web/*****/website/www/wp-includes/user.php on line 1642

    Turned off all plugins, changed theme to default, and same result…

    The nice thing is, that I cannot logout from the system :-), and when I try to log in with different user, I have the same error message in debug.log:

    [26-Oct-2013 09:57:30] PHP Fatal error: Cannot redeclare check_password_reset_key() (previously declared in /var/userdata/web/*****/website/www/wp-login.php:281) in /var/userdata/web/*****/website/www/wp-includes/user.php on line 1642

    Yep. This is a bummer. I’m working on it now. It looks like it’s a matter of function conflicts between two essential files (wp-login.php and wp-includes/user.php). Will post as soon as I can find a fix.

    Ok, I re-updated wordpress and it seems to have fixed the problem. Good luck. I use subversion so I just re-ran the command. Not sure if that matters though.

    Having the same issue, tried different things, fresh installs, database update but getting same error….

    I’ve had this error over and over last few days. IXwebhosting has helped me get back to dashboard a couple of times, but now all individual sites within multi-sites are not working and IX says I need to do a fix inside WP. Something about an automatic redirect inside WP that conflicts with IX security? I’m not tech-savy enough to understand. Would try to follow step-by-step help if there is any? Kind of a nightmare . . . http://www.jliacademy.com/scribbles/

    This error means you have an incomplete upgrade. You need to update wp-login.php and other files in the WordPress root directory.

    In WordPress 3.7, check_password_reset_key() and two other functions were moved from wp-login.php to wp-includes/user.php:
