  • Fatal Error Message after trying to Install Wordpress 2.7.1 ????

    This is what happend. I already had wordpress installed before and didn't have a problem installing it before but...I had my domain name on a different hosting account and the server would go down allot during the day and it was cheap hosting.

    So my friend let me put my domain name on his hosting account which he pays hundreds of dollars per. month. So I changed the name servers and after about an hour it started pointing to my domain name.

    Then I uploaded Wordpress again after I got a new Database and user name in MySQL. Did this right like I always do and then uploaded wordpress with FileZilla.

    Then I tried to install it and got this message:

    Fatal error: Call to undefined function is_admin() in /home/voip/public_html/wp-admin/includes/comment.php on line 159

    I have never got this message before. So I looked this up on google and someone else had the same problem but never said their problem got fixed. So I don't know how to fix this problem. I have also errased all files and uploaded a new wordpress I downloaded again.

    And I still get the same Fatal Error message:

    Fatal error: Call to undefined function is_admin() in /home/voip/public_html/wp-admin/includes/comment.php on line 159

    Why is this happening?

    Please help, thank you!

    Fatal error: Call to undefined function is_admin() in /home/voip/public_html/wp-admin/includes/comment.php on line 159


    And a couple hours later I did this:



    Hey I just deleted all the files. Downloaded wordpress again and then uploaded it on my site again. And I even made a new data base and added all that to where It needs to go and tried to install it and I got this message again:

    Fatal error: Call to undefined function is_admin() in /home/voip/public_html/wp-admin/includes/comment.php on line 159

    This is weird. You have no idea why this is happening?

    I hope someone can help me

    Anyone know??

    I'm sure the WP forum you have asked the same question in will provide better support than we can, but you're welcome to post back any relevant information.

    I'm with "samboll", one of the files probably did not get uploaded properly. How are you uploading the files? Binary or ASCII mode? Do you have shell access to the server so you can just grab the entire ZIP file and unzip it right into the directory structure?

      I'm using FileZilla. I had no problems uploading it earlier this week until I changed hosting. Now it's giving me problems. The moderator at wordpress believes it's because a file is missing but I re uploaded it like 3 or 4 times. It should be working by now.

      Anyone have an idea of what i should do?

        What file are you browsing to when you install?

        Edit: and at what step in the installation did you get the error?

        Finding out HOW to do something is called research, i.e. keep searching until you find the answer. After you attempt to do something and cannot solve a problem with it yourself, would be when you ask others for help.

          Ok this is a screen shot of FileZilla and my problem. Let me know if you notice anything wrong.

          oh by the way, i try to upload all the files I'm supposed to upload. And still it does not work. I'm puzzled and confused and upset.

            I didn't notice any error while uploading it. I know there is an error when I try to install it. That is all.

              Most likely thing will be your PHP version. Check the wordpress requirements (I think its PHP 4 or newer).

              Some plugins call a fatal error because they need PHP5 or newer to function.
