Hi All


I have updated wordpress to latest version and I get the following error when trying to access wp-admin:


Warning: require_once(/home/sixxqm5rnyq1/public_html/wp-includes/sodium_compat/src/SodiumException.php): failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /home/sixxqm5rnyq1/public_html/wp-includes/sodium_compat/autoload.php on line 40

Fatal error: require_once(): Failed opening required '/home/sixxqm5rnyq1/public_html/wp-includes/sodium_compat/src/SodiumException.php' (include_path='.:/opt/alt/php72/usr/share/pear') in /home/sixxqm5rnyq1/public_html/wp-includes/sodium_compat/autoload.php on line 40

This is either a permissions issue or the file is missing - I would try to manually reinstall wordpress core files and see if that solves the issue first

hi, markingham, 

It seems the WordPress core file might have corrupted, regenerate the .htaccess file and deactivate the plugins can fix fail to open stream error. You can also see this guide to fix WordPress failed to open stream error.
