wp problems

I’m trying to set up a new blog. Well the same blog as this one, just under its own domain. Anyway, I already had a ton of trouble upgrading to WP 2.6.1 yesterday, but I got it working. Now I can’t log into my account. For that blog, not this one obviously. lol

I’m pretty sure that I’m entering my correct user name and password, instead I keep getting this message.

Warning: getmypid() has been disabled for security reasons in /home/julie524/public_html/beautifulmess.elementfx.com/wp-includes/class-phpass.php on line 52

I’ve tried this and this. Neither have worked. When I try the first way and hit “submit”, I get a blank page. When I try it through phpMyAdmin, nothing happens when I use the new password.

I’ll give internet cookies to whoever can help me.

eta: It’s fixed!!! weeeeeeeeeee! Rory gave me some advice to upgrade my PHP version and I did that and I also changed a string of text in my class-phpass.php file. Well first I did this other thing to change the password and that didn’t work so I emailed the author of the blog and got some help.

    I’ve got the same exact problem. It looks like we’re using the same host. I don’t think the problem has anything to do with your password. I think it has something to do with the php upgrade they’re doing. I’ve got a request in on the forums. If I get a reply, I’ll try to post it for you here.

    Go to your x10hosting account panel and then upgrade to the intermediate php version. It’ll take several hours to upgrade, but that will fix that problem.

    After that, you may start having a problem with a phpinfo error (I did). If you do, just open the file that is giving you the error, go to the line number referenced and comment out phpinfo by adding // at the beginning of that line.

    Hope that helps.

    $this->random_state = md5(uniqid(rand(), true));

    This would do the trick =)

    I mean replace line 52 with the above code
