Problem - Fatal error: func_get_args()


#1

Hello, there. I am having some major problems with my blog, The Amateur Financier (http://www.theamateurfinancier.com/blog/). I attempted to update one of the plug-ins I have installed, WP-Filebase, and doing so seems to have caused my site to be struck by a fatal error. Specifically, I’ve gotten this message on my site, on the homepage, on individual pages, and on the administrative pages:

Fatal error: func_get_args(): Can’t be used as a function parameter in /home/amateurfinancier/theamateurfinancier.com/blog/wp-content/plugins/wp-filebase/wp-filebase.php on line 33

It doesn’t sound like it should be that hard to repair (even for someone with essentially no experience with coding like myself), BUT I can’t get onto the site. I have attempted to access my FTP files, but I can’t seem to do that. Specifically, I’ve tried to log into my FTP data, and my password is apparently no longer functional. I’ve also tried to restore my backed-up data, but my webhost (Dreamhost) doesn’t have it backed up, and to restore my latest backed up data manually, I need to have access to FTP data.

Any help with this issue would be appreciated. Also, if I can fix this myself, I’d appreciate a walk-through that is as hand-holding as possible; as noted, I’m essentially useless when it comes to handling issues like this on my own. Thanks to anyone who can help!

Try to access your files via DH panel --> Domains --> Manage Domains --> WebFTP

The wordpress shouldn’t affect the FTP though. Sounds like a problem in the server

Thanks, Patrick. I went through my server account to access the FTP and change it, allowing me to disable it. Thanks for the suggestions!

No worries. I’m glad you had your site back :stuck_out_tongue:

Also: I believe that error indicates that the plugin requires PHP 5.3, which you can enable in the DreamHost Panel (under Manage Domains -> Edit).
