    I’ve gotten past the install.php, and I’ve gotten a login page, but after I put in my credentials I’m getting the following error when I try to log into wordpress for the first time

    Warning: require_once() [function.require-once]: Unable to access ./admin.php in /htdocs/2/nickb/peidm2/wp-admin/index.php on line 10
    
    Warning: require_once(./admin.php) [function.require-once]: failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /htdocs/2/nickb/peidm2/wp-admin/index.php on line 10
    
    Fatal error: require_once() [function.require]: Failed opening required './admin.php' (include_path='.:/usr/local/php-5.2.13/libdata/php-5.2.13/php') in /htdocs/2/nickb/peidm2/wp-admin/index.php on line 10

    I’ve also verified that file permissions on all of these are at 644. I’m struggling a bit getting this figured out, but I’d like to get started blogging again and get off my ancient MT installation.

    Try re-uploading all files & folders from a fresh download of WordPress.

    I just deleted all the files, dumped the whole database, and redownloaded and installed WordPress. (I’m downloading it directly to the Unix Host)

    I’m still getting the exact same errors.

    I also have a console log of the full dump/reinstall if that’s helpful. Although apparently its too big to put here..

    Warning above clearly says that you did not upload all the files, please check that all files are uploaded.

    I ungzipped and untarred them directly from the latest file on wordpress.org.

    Here’s a file listing from the wp-admin directory

    Also, if I go into wp-admin/index.php and change line 10 from
    require_once('./admin.php');
    to
    require_once('admin.php');

    I get a bit further than that. As I’ve said before I have a console log of the full dump/reinstall which lists every file that was written by tar, so if you think I’m missing a specific file I’m happy to look through that, or to email it to you, it just is too large to fit here…

    Err, I get a bit further than that should’ve read, I get beyond that specific error page, but the page that loads still has PHP errors in it..

    “failed to open stream” means files are missing.

    Your wp-admin files match mine. How about wp-includes?

    As far as I can tell all the files are there and the sizes look correct. That of course, does not mean nothing is corrupted.

    Hi,
    I do have the same problem. All the files have been uploaded too, and the listing seems consistent with mine.
    I have re-downloaded and re-uploaded once again, and nothing changes, the issue is still there.

    I emailed my ISP on this, and they provided some helpful guidance at their Installing WordPress on Panix page.. I think I’m out of the woods now.

    LNRO this might help you as well..
