If you have troubles since the update to WordPress 4.5 please read this post before opening a new thread.
I’ve just updated my website from version 1.5 to 1.8 and copied over all of the files that are listed in the versions document from 1.5 on. For some reason, the functions.php file is not playing nicely and gives my site a 500 internal server error. Can anyone help me with this? What’s contained in the functions.php update that I need? Is it critical that I replace this file?
The 500 internal server error is very generic and without additional details we don’t know what causes it. Please try to activate the WordPress debug mode: http://codex.wordpress.org/WP_DEBUG and check if wordpress outputs any errors.
Hi there, figured out how to debug and got this in the log:
[11-Aug-2014 20:39:06 UTC] PHP Warning: require_once(config-wpml/config.php): failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /hermes/bosoraweb120/b473/ipg.lifeinbeats/joshuayoung/wp-content/themes/angular/functions.php on line 10
[11-Aug-2014 20:39:06 UTC] PHP Fatal error: require_once(): Failed opening required ‘config-wpml/config.php’ (include_path=’.:/usr/local/lib/php-5.3.13/lib/php’) in /hermes/bosoraweb120/b473/ipg.lifeinbeats/joshuayoung/wp-content/themes/angular/functions.php on line 10
Try re-uploading the theme files over FTP so that the missing files are replaced/added in as needed. You can also check line 10 and follow it back to your online config-wpml folder to make sure the config.php is there.
Oh, well yeah, I don’t have the config-wpml folder because it wasn’t listed in the changelog of files to copy/replace. Might want to check on that! Thanks for your help though.
