    Hello @xavi3r12

    – Try MANUALLY re-updating. Download a fresh copy of the WordPress .zip file to your computer, unzip it, and use that to copy up all files and folders EXCEPT the wp-config.php file and the /wp-content/ directory. You may need to delete the old wp-admin and wp-includes folders and files on your server before uploading the new ones. Please read the Manual Updatedirections first.

    – Backup: If you haven’t already done, always backup everything (including your database) before doing any actions, just in case something really goes wrong. You can never have enough backups!

    Hope this will help.




    I have tried that it still returned the same error, however i have just noticed that if i delete my bp-custom.php everything works fine but my pages does not redirect users to there profile “if logged in” which was the purpose of the bp-custom.php file. This in the code in my bp-custom.php file

    // hacks and mods will go here
    /* Redirects to profile upon login */
    add_action('login_form', 'redirect_after_login'); 
    function redirect_after_login() 
    global $redirect_to; 
    if   (!isset($_GET['redirect_to'])) 
    $redirect_to =   get_option('activity');
    //  sample-page = your page name after site_url
    } }
    function bp_help_redirect_to_profile(){
    global $bp;
    if( is_user_logged_in() && bp_is_front_page() )
    bp_core_redirect( get_option('home') . '/members/' . bp_core_get_username( bp_loggedin_user_id() ) . '/activity' );
    add_action( 'get_header', 'bp_help_redirect_to_profile',1);
    function go_home(){
      wp_redirect( home_url() );
    add_action( 'bp_complete_signup', 'buddydev_redirect_after_signup' );
    function buddydev_redirect_after_signup() {
        $page = wp_redirect( get_option('siteurl') . '/profile' );
        bp_core_redirect( site_url( $page ) );

    So how do i fix this?? I need help Please
