HELP! 500 internal sever error and PHP Fatal error: Uncaught Error


Ive tried default theme, deactivating plugins, renaming .htaccess file (I get 404 error).
It all started with the error message below whenever i try to access other pages and categories (home page and wp admin works fine). Then i tried the above and none seemed to be working, so i got my server error log and this what i got

Server error log

“PHP Fatal error: Uncaught Error: Call to undefined function wp_start_scraping_edited_file_errors() in /home/politic6/public_html/wp-settings.php:297

The message I get when i try to access other pages

Hi @castroherder
