WordPress 3.0.1

Just a quick update. The site is now running on WordPress 3.0.1. I updated using the auto-update feature of WordPress, and everything went smoothly until I tried to test the site after the update. There was an error on the function require(./wp-blog-header.php). FYI to others who may experience similar problems. If you get the following error:

Warning: require(./wp-blog-header.php) [function.require]: failed to open stream: No such file or directory in C:\HostingSpaces\ericg\nfynite.com\wwwroot\index.php on line 17

Warning: require(./wp-blog-header.php) [function.require]: failed to open stream: No such file or directory in C:\HostingSpaces\ericg\nfynite.com\wwwroot\index.php on line 17

Fatal error: require() [function.require]: Failed opening required './wp-blog-header.php' (include_path='.;C:\php5\pear') in C:\HostingSpaces\ericg\nfynite.com\wwwroot\index.php on line 17

You may have the same problem I did.  To solve this problem, I had to modify the index.php file.  If your WordPress installation is running in your root directory, then you need to change the following line:

require('./wp-blog-header.php');

To this:

require('wp-blog-header.php');

That’s it.  After I changed that, things worked normally again.  If your WordPress installation is not running in the root directory, then you just need to insert the path to your header file.  Hope this helps someone who has a the same problem.

Now running WordPress 3.0

For those that have been to my site before, you’ll notice that all of the content that was here previously is now gone. I’ve switched to a new web host (Arvixe.com), and decided to start over from scratch with the new site, and along with that, I’m starting over with WordPress 3.0. I’ll be working to get the site set up the way I want along with adding new content soon. Check back for updates frequently! 🙂
