To resolve it – I downloaded the latest version of WordPress
I unzipped the downloaded folder and copied the functions.php file from wp-includes. Using FTP I pasted the new functions.php into the wp-includes directory onto my web hosting, when asked if I wanted to overwrite existing file I said yes.
I now have access to the Dashboard and my blog. Thank you
o.k. When I added a new .htaccess file to my root directory, I only recieved “index of” when typing in web address.
What am I missing here?
Here’s how my files are structured in my File Manager:
1. root /public_html here you see files not a index.php file no problem go to https://wordpress.org and download wordpress 4.0 and Extract the folders here you see a index file in you computer index.php file size 486 bytes . Upload in to File Manager root /public_html Solve The problem Enjoy friends .
