    Sounds like you didn't install it correctly, is this the first time your logging in to admin?

    Check if your wp-config file has not been removed/renamed

    Don't do any of that yet, clearing the database will delete all your posts. PM me and I will walk you through what to do.

    Have your host completely remove that directory and start over. Otherwise you will be putting bandaids on your site from here on out...

    DELETE EVERYTHING - Use a different DB name... too! ( Just in case )

    Guys, it is just a PHP issue, probably something didn't upload right. First he needs to put up a fresh unedited copy of the latest version.
