Support » Fixing WordPress » wp-confing.php causes a lot of issues

  • Hi,

    I was trying to fix an issue since 2 weeks. That’s not even a joke you can see my post.

    I just fixed it. Now I can update my files, my plugins and finally I can search for new plugins.

    The issue was this line in the config.php file that causes a bom character.
    @require(“wp-confing.php”);

    Can anyone tell me what’s wp.confiNg.php ?

  • Hi @geekinside,

    The name of that file is wp-config.php that contains the database’s details.

    And the name of the file was changed thats why you were getting an error.

    Hi,

    I mean I have the wp-config.php with @require(“wp-confing.php”);. However, I have a wp-confing.php that contains unreadable characters.

    And I’m wondering if I can delete the wp-confing.php

    Honestly there shouldn’t be a file like that with unreadable characters. It looks like you’ve been hacked. Remain calm and carefully follow this guide. When you’re done, you may want to implement some (if not all) of the recommended security measures.

    Alright,
    can you guys tell me what’s the default permission of the wp-config.php file?
    Right now it’s 755.

    Also, what’s the best malware scanner for wordpress.

    One more thing, My sitemap.xml contains a lot of links that doesn’t work and basically no working link, what should I do ?
    I didn’t even create this file. I’m wondering if by default this file is supposed to be there.

    It’s not supposed to be, I thought I was clear on that.
