    Hello all, I tried to do an update yesterday and got this error:

    Fatal error: Call to a member function add_rewrite_tag() on a non-object in /home/larkieatlarge/larkieatlarge.com/wp-includes/rewrite.php on line 51

    I have asked Dreamhost to revert and they were able to reload the database but cannot resolve this error. Could someone here please help me? I do not know what version was running prior to the update (possibly a rather old one). Thanks so much!

    Using Ftp replace all files and folders except wp-content folder and wp-config.php file

    Try:
    - switching to the Twenty Eleven theme by renaming your current theme's folder inside wp-content/themes and adding "-old" to the end of the folder name using FTP or whatever file management application your host provides.

    - resetting the plugins folder by FTP or phpMyAdmin.

    - re-uploading all files & folders - except the wp-content folder - from a fresh download of WordPress. Make sure that you delete the old copies of files & folder before uploading the new ones.

    - running the upgrade manually via wp-admin/upgrade.php

    Tania_Osbourne if you used fantastico, you're not on DreamHost :) We don't have it :D

    I would re-install manually, though.
