All three Wordpress blogs suddenly give Fatal Error



I’m really, really, hoping someone can help me, because I’m at a complete loss, and really upset and confused as to why all three of my wordpress blogs just suddenly stopped working today and give a Fatal Error. And I can’t even get to my wordpress admin page to log in and backup my data!!

I have three wordpress blogs hosted on dreamhost:

The first two were version 2.5 of wordpress and the third one, I can’t remember what version it was… 2.3 something I think. And I can’t get to my admin page to log in and check what version it is.

This is the error I’m getting on all three pages:

Warning: main(/home/.pavlov/mileyandhowie/ [function.main]: failed to open stream: Permission denied in /home/.pavlov/mileyandhowie/ on line 16

Fatal error: main() [function.require]: Failed opening required ‘/home/.pavlov/mileyandhowie/’ (include_path=’.:/usr/local/lib/php’) in /home/.pavlov/mileyandhowie/ on line 16

I didn’t recently make any updates to the blogs, and especially not the same thing to all three of them. I also tried updating the first blog (monsterpaparazzi) to the latest version of wordpress (2.5.1) but there was no change.

Thank you so much for taking the time to read this,
