Support » Fixing WordPress » WP 2.5 blog admin error

  • I go to // and go to Log In in sidebar, which goes to WP Admin Log In page. When I enter my user and password I get this error message (//

    Warning: main(/home/thehu22/public_html/wp-admin/includes/admin.php) [function.main]: failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /home/thehu22/public_html/wp-admin/admin.php on line 14

    Fatal error: main() [function.require]: Failed opening required ‘/home/thehu22/public_html/wp-admin/includes/admin.php’ (include_path=’.:/usr/lib/php:/usr/local/lib/php’) in /home/thehu22/public_html/wp-admin/admin.php on line 14

    The last time I logged into the blog admin area, I went to settings, noticed the URL and blog boxed settings were the same (/ I was having a problem with the ‘.com’ URL appearing different than the ‘Home’ page, on the Internet browser. I had tried a change to the URL and blog boxed settings with no problem. However, when I deleted the ‘/thehuchron’ part of the URL and blog boxed settings in the administration area, I got the ‘.com’ URL and the ‘Home’ page to look the same, but could no longer login to the admin area (and got the error message).

    Problem #1 – I don’t understand what the error message is telling me! What is missing? and/or What I need to add? on line 14 of the admin.php.

    When I am on the blog site and ‘View Source’ for that page, I can see where to add ‘/thehuchron’. I have looked at the ‘admin.php’ file noted in the error message, but I don’t know what to add at/or on line 14!

    Is this what is to be added on line 14: include_path=’.:/usr/lib/php:/usr/local/lib/php’?

    If I am to edit a directory or file, I need more specific information.

  • Consider using phpMyAdmin to make sure your wp_options table has the correct values in siteurl and home.

    siteurl is your WordPress address (URL) and home is your Blog Address (URL).


    Thanks for the information!! It was of great help. This did get me back into the blog Admin area. However!

    I am back to my original problem. When one goes to my blog site, the ‘.com’ page and ‘home’ page are not the same. I went into the admin area and made a title change in the sidebar. When I logged out and did a refresh I found the ‘Home’ page (URL: // showed the title change, the ‘.com’ page (URL: // did not.

    The problem may lie in the ‘.com’ is in the ROOT dir and the ‘Home’ is in the /thehuchron dir? I have been through all the directories and files of the Root dir and have not found any reference to // page.

    Can you help me with this – point me in the correct direction?


    It looks like your WordPress files are in web-root sub-folder, thehuchron.

    To make WordPress available at just change in Settings->General, the Blog address (URL) to and put this index.php file in your web-root folder (it is the same folder that contains the thehuchron folder)

    /* Short and sweet */
    define('WP_USE_THEMES', true);

    Then update your permalinks in Settings->Permalinks.


    Thanks, the index.php worked great. That was the only change I made. When one enters in the browser, they get to the /thehuchron page (also the Home page). Will that be a problem if I don’t use the other suggestions?

    Thanks again!!!

    Will that be a problem if I don’t use the other suggestions?

    That question confused me…
