[Resolved] Fatal Error updating database in 3.4

  • Hello

    WordPress has been updated! Before we send you on your way, we have to update your database to the newest version.

    I click on Update WordPress Database and I get:

    Fatal error: Call to undefined function wp_cache_add_non_persistent_groups() in /home/uplymech/public_html/wp-includes/class-wp-theme.php on line 177

    —-

    The site continues to operate correctly, just the admin panel I cannot access.

    —-

    I have:

    1) Downloaded the latest release and replaced the root files, wp-content (not overwriting my own content files), wp-admin and wp-includes via FTP
    2) Removed all plugin directories via ftp.
    3) Removed my theme directory (leaving only Twenty11 althought my site didn’t seem to resort to this theme – I got just a blank page)
    4) Emptied my browser cache.
    5) Checked any known conflicts with plugins and themes on the masterlist.

    Now a bit stumped. In the past doing an upload via FTP usually did the trick.

    No. Download a fresh copy of WordPress and follow the instructions in http://codex.wordpress.org/Upgrading_WordPress

    That’s what I did. I did a fresh download of 3.4 and FTPd up the fresh files.

    BTW: I just went in to phpMyAdmin and deactivated the plugins. No change.

    (I deleted all the files on the server before uploading the new files)

    @esmi that page you link to has nothing on… where can we find it, please?

    @rechellucie – there is just an s missing off the end of the URL

    No. Please read the page at the link I posted above. Do not over-write the old files & folders.

    I did not overwrite the old files and folders. I deleted the old files and folders and uploaded the new files.

    @gavintyte: Please try again using a fresh download of WordPress. You appear to have a corrupted file.

    Okay – I will do so again. Third time lucky. 🙂

    No, I’m afraid that didn’t work.

    I still get the message:

    Fatal error: Call to undefined function wp_cache_add_non_persistent_groups() in /home/uplymech/public_html/wp-includes/class-wp-theme.php on line 177

    when trying to do a Database Update.

    Hmmm. Now the front end site menus won’t link to any pages.

    Warning: require_once(add-link-to-facebook-widget.php) [function.require-once]: failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /home/uplymech/public_html/wp-content/plugins/add-link-to-facebook/add-link-to-facebook.php on line 46

    That error on your site won’t help. Try resetting the plugins folder by PhpMyAdmin.

    I tried that earlier but it didn’t seem to make any difference. I will try again in the morning (need to sleep now – been up since 4am this morning). Thanks.

    I have set the Active Plugins in phpMyAdmin to a:0:{} and have removed the plugin folders too. Still no change.

    I have tried another delete files from server and re-upload via FTP – still getting the same error on Updating Database.
