Support » Fixing WordPress » problem with updating 3.5

  • Resolved Willem 2


    After installing 3.5, the content menu bar (when adding or changing messages) is not displayed.

    I tried the following five ‘solutions’:

    1: I installed 3.5 and then deactivated the active plugins one by one

    2: Using FTP, I changed the name of the plugin folder and than installed 3.5 in admin.

    3: I have dowloaded 3.5 and than uploaded with FTP everything except the content directory.

    4: I removed all inactive plugins

    5: I’ve changed my theme in a WP theme.

    Between every ‘solution’ I have put my backup back.

    Nothing worked until now. Is there someone who can help me?

    Have you tried:

    – switching to the Twenty Twelve theme to rule out any theme-specific problems.

    resetting the plugins folder by PhpMyAdmin.

    I already tried that solotion but I tried it once more to be sure. First I switched to the Twenty Twelve theme, than I followed the next instructions to reset the plugins folder:

    Via FTP or your host’s file manager, navigate to the wp-contents folder (directory)
    2. Via FTP or your host’s file manager, rename the folder “plugins” to “plugins.hold”
    3. Login to your WordPress administration menus (/wp-admin)
    4. Via FTP or your host’s file manager, rename “plugins.hold” back to “plugins”

    After step 3 I tried to install 3.5 This didn’t solute the problem.

    Try adding define('CONCATENATE_SCRIPTS', false ); to the bottom of your wp-config.php file (just before the require_once line).

    I have done this but now I get the next warning when I try to open website: Parse error: syntax error, unexpected ‘&’ in /home/p34950/domains/ on line 83

    There was a .htaccess file in wp-admin. I removed this and solved the problem.

    Your the BEST!…Love you @esmi…TRUE DIVA..YOU SOLVED IT!!.. I havent posted in days.. Enjoy your Sunday, you hear!!

    define('CONCATENATE_SCRIPTS', false );
