Well I’ve been working on a new theme for some time, and just been refreshing the “modify theme” page with no problems for quite a while, otherwise I would have discovered this earlier.
This morning I had to re-start my browser and when attempting to log back into WP I realised that when I updated WP last month I’d overwritten the wp-config file by mistake and I was presented with a few warnings and the “Welcome to WP” Installation page. I went back to the wp-config file and put in my database details again, and yet I was still presented with the same screen. I entered in my email address and the name of my blog hoping it would recognise me and go back to where I was, blissfully ignoring the warnings which I couldn’t find anything wrong with and pressed Install WordPress. The next page comes up with the same warnings and nothing else. I get:
Warning: mysql_get_server_info() [function.mysql-get-server-info]: Access denied for user ‘herstori’@’localhost’ (using password: NO) in /home/herstori/public_html/phantom/wordpress/wp-admin/includes/schema.php on line 6
Warning: mysql_get_server_info() [function.mysql-get-server-info]: A link to the server could not be established in /home/herstori/public_html/phantom/wordpress/wp-admin/includes/schema.php on line 6
Warning: Cannot modify header information – headers already sent by (output started at /home/herstori/public_html/phantom/wordpress/wp-admin/includes/schema.php:6) in /home/herstori/public_html/phantom/wordpress/wp-admin/install.php on line 17
All my database details are correct, I had enough trouble over getting them to know that. I’ve uploaded “schema.php” again, too. Other than that I can’t see what the problem is unless I’ve overwritten another file by mistake, and need to rectify that – either way can anyone see the problem and give me a solution – preferably so that I don’t lose all my posts and pages. Thanks
