    I get this message after installing MU 1.2.3:

    Fatal error: main(): Failed opening required 'ABSPATH/wp-admin/admin-functions.php' (include_path='.;c:\php\pear') in D:\inetpub\mysite\wordpressmu\wp-admin\upgrade-functions.php on line 5

    I haven't made any changes to the files mentioned, I've only followed installation instructions.
    I am setting up WPMU on a database that had my old WP on it. I don't know if that makes a difference

    I have the EXACT SAME PROBLEM!! Please, someone post a solution to this issue. It seems to be a common problem with wp 2.2.1

    tvalleav10, you're at the wrong site as you're running different software. You need to be over at Also please don't shout (type in all caps). It's very rude.

    John, please note the abspath isn't being set. Is there anything showing up in your error logs?
