WP 3.0 Fatal error When config.php is edited for Multisite (5 posts)

    When i edit my config.php file to enable the multisite function my admin page just turns into "fatal error: call to undefined function get_option() in /****/****/public_html/*****/******/wp-admin/admin.php on line 22". My site also goes down.

    I have ties it MANY times, always the same result. Even tried it without my plugins or any themes. Really stuck here and would really appreciate some help.

    All I have been doing is adding "define('WP_ALLOW_MULTISITE', true);" just b4 the line, /* That's all, stop editing! Happy blogging. */

    Any ideas?

    p.s. I upgraded to 3.0 from 2.9

    It seems like the upgrade wasn't completed and there are some files missing. You may need to try redoing the upgrade manually. Here's how you can go about that.

    I tried upgrading manually a few times now. Also tried removing all plugins and still have an error message whenever I change my config.php to allow the multisite. I am STUMPED!

    Even stranger, I started a completely new wordpress installation on a new database and SAME PROBLEM!

  5. It could quite possibly be your host. Maybe they;re using an old php version, maybe they do a check for multisite code and cripple your install.
